Paris saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe has asked that the league 1 golden boot be shared between himself and Monaco forward Wissam Ben yedder.
Mbappe finished with the same number of goals as Ben yedder, 18 for the season before the league was suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the PSG star was considered the sole top scorer as he scored more goals from open play.
Ben yedder scored three of his 18 goals from the penalty spot while Mbappe didn’t score any penalty goal.
The world cup winner tweeted that the French International also deserves an award.
“Thank you for all your messages. I think that Wissam also deserves a trophy, like the Premier League did last season, to reward his year,” he tweeted.
Liverpool duo Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane were given golden boots for finishing as top scorers in the 2018/19 premier league Season with 22 goals each.
Merci à tous pour vos messages.
Je pense par contre que Wissam aussi mérite un trophée, comme ça s’est fait en Premier League la saison dernière pour récompenser son année 🤷🏽♂️…

“Thank you bro, congratulations to you… We can alternate if you want,” he said.
