He was named the Premier League Player of the Season and the PFA Players' Player of the Year as well as finishing 8th in the Ballon d'Or. "We are not doing as bad as people say".

Real Madrid legend Fernando Hierro has urged the club to stand by coach Zinedine Zidane. Mbappe joined Paris St Germain instead and Real weakened their attacking options by relinquishing James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata, who did not start most games last season but made invaluable contributions from the bench.
