‘I hated it!’ – Thierry Henry says Mbappe needs to put the team first as he opens up on tough time at Barcelona

ARSENAL legend Thierry Henry has advised wantaway Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe to put the team first amid his ongoing exit drama.

His comments comes amid claims suggesting Mbappe, 23, is “fed up” and wants to leave PSG as soon as possible with the relationship between him and the club being “completely broken”.

The striker is said to feel “betrayed” following a series of “unfeasible” promises he says were made to him by the Parisians amid rumours suggesting he has also fallen out with team-mate Neymar.

Among those promises the France international feels were broken was that the French champions would sign a new No9 that would allow him to play on the wings more freely.

However, PSG failed to land another centre-forward and manager Christophe Galtier prefers to play Neymar and Lionel Messi around Mbappe.

Henry, 45, insists his fellow Frenchman should prioritise the interests of the club and used his experience at Barcelona to prove that.

The legendary forward was forced to play high and wide on the left by then manager Pep Guardiola.

The Arsenal and France record goalscorer insists he “hated” his position but he ultimately did it for the good of the team.

Thierry told CBS Sports Golazo: “We know he doesn’t like it [the position Mbappe is playing in].

“Nobody likes to be exposed to what you are not good at. You just don’t like it.

“But there is something that’s bigger than anyone else [and that] is the club. But did they make him feel that the club was the most important thing?

“Or did they make him feel that he was more important than the club?

“And I think at one point, for me I will use my own stories, I didn’t like to play high and wide at Barcelona. I hated it.

“But I had to do it for the team. I didn’t like after 100 caps and I don’t know how many goals… I had to go and play on the left.

“I didn’t hear anyone saying, ‘Oh, what a nice gesture to go and play on the left’.
