Former Reds ace urges team to pass on Mbappé

Former Liverpool ace urges Reds NOT to sign Kylian Mbappé

October 14, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The Frenchman's never-ending unrest at PSG could have a major effect to whichever team decides to lure him away, according to the former footballer.

Apparently, there are fewer teams in Europe that may think about hiring Kylian Mbappé. And even if they were thinking of making a move to sign the striker, some of their former players have urged them to walk away from the "opportunity".

Earlier this week, Madrid icon Fernando Morientes urged Los Blancos not to try and sign the player as they so publicly did in the past year, and that voice has been echoed by the former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey.

Speaking to website, the former England International admitted that his doubts regarding Mbappé's commitment to a new team come after watching him creating such a mess away from the pitch.

"Anyone would find it hard to turn down the chance to sign Mbappé, but if he just signed a new contract and he is making a scandal to get away from it, why wouldn't he pull it off one more time if things are not going as he planned in his alleged new club?" Heskey questioned.

The 44-year-old continued his assessment on the situation by putting himself in the shoes of some of the best coaches in the world, admitting that even they would find it hard to deal with such a complicated scenery.

"That's the only problem I have with the way players choose to part ways with a club. What does it say when you just signed a deal and immediately want to leave? If you are a coach you have to ask yourself: 'Would I like to bring that into our atmosphere'?" the former striker added. 

Before the interview came to an end, Heskey hinted that judging by how German coach Jurgen Klopp handles his teams, it might be highly unlikely for fans to see him sanctioning such a move.

"I don't think Klopp will be willing to treat a player differently to the rest of the members of the squad. He is a top player, I admit it, and he would find a place in any starting lineup in the world, but then you would have to deal with all that weight he is carrying around," Heskey concluded.
