Kylian Mbappe & Thomas Lemar

Monaco supporters group slam Mbappe for his transfer window conduct

Not acceptable

Kylian Mbappe is admired by a huge amount of fans around the world, but some of Monaco’s supporters think his behaviour this summer leaves a huge amount to be desired.

Ultras Monaco 1994 have released a strongly worded warning to the player and his advisers, claiming no one is above Monaco, and if he wants to leave he should do so quickly and if he stays, he’s expected to do his best for the club.

The Guardian report they said: “In recent times we have witnessed with astonishment and indignation the figures quoted by the media about the transfer of Mbappé but also about the salary to renew his contract with our club.

“We think that no player is worth so many millions of euros. We believe football is for everyone and values such as the love of the shirt and respect for the club where you been your career. We cannot accept that one of our players has acted in that way and demand such figures, without having disputed more than a few dozen matches at professional level.

“We would like to remind Kylian Mbappé and his clan that nothing and nobody is above the institution of AS Monaco FC. We therefore strongly hope our representatives will take the necessary decision to close this case if these requirements are confirmed while taking into consideration that it is essential not to strengthen the competition for the title.

“Since their arrival, they have shown us their ability and we fully believe in them to build a team capable of defending the title, with or without Mbappé.”

Costa to come in?

One player who Monaco have been linked with is Chelsea forward Diego Costa, who is desperate to leave Chelsea, and with Atletico Madrid unwilling to pay the money Chelsea are demanding – not to mention their ban on registering players, there have been suggestions he could end up at Monaco for at least the first part of the season.
