Thierry Henry on Kylian Mbappé against Marseille: “He had his heart set on showing he’s still the boss.”

Thierry Henry praised Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé (24) following an exceptional performance against Marseille in Le Classique (0-3). Speaking on Amazon Prime Video Sport, the former France international evoked that the Mbappé was set from the start to assert himself in the game from Marseille, even telling from his body language in the tunnel before the match.

Henry said that Mbappé “had his heart set on showing he’s still the boss. He showed it, again. He’s scary.” 

Mbappé continues to make history with PSG, scoring a brace against Marseille to become the joint all-time top scorer for Les Parisiens. With this feat, Mbappé has now scored 200 goals in just 247 games for PSG, a remarkable achievement that took former teammate Edinson Cavani 301 games to accomplish between 2013 and 2020.

It is only a matter of time before Mbappé surpasses Cavani and becomes PSG’s all-time leading scorer. In his latest match against Marseille, Mbappé broke several records, including becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in the history of Le Classique, with eight goals to his name, surpassing Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s seven.

Mbappé also set a new club record by scoring at least two goals in 50 competitive games for PSG. He is also the first player from the Parisian club to score a brace at the Vélodrome since Ibrahimovic achieved the feat in 2012.
