Asked in the mixed zone after Thursday’s Nations League match against Austria, Kylian Mbappé acknowledged that he “has more freedom in the French team than in PSG.”

The two styles for Mbappé: PSG and France

According to boy from Bondy, in Paris he is asked to play more centrally, while with Les Bleus he has more freedom to move between the lines. Against Austria, the striker scored a great goal and was one of the outstanding figures in the Nations League match.

“I play differently with France,” Mbappé began. “They ask me to do different things here than at PSG. Here I have much more freedom.

“The coach knows that we have Giroud as a ‘9′ who occupies defenses and I can run into the spaces. In Paris it’s different, that doesn’t exist. They ask me to play in the center and it’s different.”

The former Monaco player, who has scored 28 goals with just 23 years with the French national team, also spoke about image rights, which have made recent headlines.

“I’m happy with the image rights agreements. It was not me who proposed them.

Being criticized won’t change the way I play and live. If it’s good for the group, I don’t care. I think the whole group is happy.”
