Mbappe & Lewandowski show concern over biennial World Cup

The PSG forward backed Lewandowski’s concern over the plan of the biennial World Cup and said that it will weaken the significance of the tournament.

France forward Kylian Mbappe and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski talk about the plans of FIFA for their proposal of World Cup every two years. The players showed their concern for the biennial World Cup plan, reports Sky Sports.

The idea of organising the World Cup every two years instead of four was supported by the president of FIFA Gianni Infantino and Arsene Wenger, the chief of global football development to formulate the modification as it will transform the football timetable. Sky Sports reports that it was discovered earlier there is a possibility that organising World Cup every two years would produce £3.3billion.

Paris Saint-Germain forward who has been a huge interest of Spanish club Real Madrid told while speaking at the Globe Soccer Awards scheduled in Dubai that the plan of biennial World Cup will put distant pressure on the players and also it will weaken the significance of the tournament that is held every four years. “My opinion is that the World Cup is the World Cup, it’s a special thing because it is every four years,” said Mbappe during the event. He further told, “If you have it every two years, it can start to be normal and I want to say that is not normal.” The forward backed Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski’s statement that said, “We have so many games every year, so many tough weeks.” The player also showed his concern about how it is not easy to maintain the schedule and stay fit for the international and club fixtures and World Cup is something not so usual and playing it every two years will make it a normal competition.

Meanwhile, during the event in Dubai, Lewandowski was awarded the ‘Maradona Award for Best Goal Scorer of the year’ and the ‘Tik Tok Fans Player of the Year’. Mbappe bagged the ‘Best Men’s Player of the Year trophy.
