Jean-Pierre Papin, it’s over

Former star of the French (Site notre bureau spécialisé) and OM, Jean-Pierre Papin co-holds the record for top scorer titles in the first division. A record that Kylian Mbappé has just broken this season.

Arriving at Olympique de Marseille in 1986, Jean-Pierre Papin became an icon of the club over the course of six seasons. “Serial scorer” capable of Venusian gestures, the French international shines in great recapitulations. Among the performances he achieved during his time at OM, “JPP” notably finished top scorer in the first division five times. Better still, he achieved this five seasons in a row, from 1998 to 1992. The record is the same fight for a certain Kylian Mbappé.

These two seasons, Paris Saint-Germain’s attack has been programmed for the best but winners of the 2023-2024 season. It was the sixth time in his career that he had played a role he had chosen. He will then pass in front of Jean-Pierre Papin, but also the former Monegasque Delio Onnis, and a PSG glory, Carlos Bianchi who co-held the record with the first named. During the last season in Ligue 1, before the match against Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappé broke a new record.

Too early

So, of course, there are still three matches to be played in the championship before the end of the current safe year, but it is unlikely, even illusory, to see Jonathan David return to the Bondynois who is now nine units ahead of the Lille (26 goals against 17). The end of Jean-Pierre Papin’s rain is not imminent in this sector. Those who would like the former Marseillais not to be dislodged from his throne shared with Onnis and Bianchi will say that Luis Enrique can be their ally.

Indeed, and to follow the wishes of his management, the Parisian coach has gradually sidelined Kylian Mbappé in Ligue 1, contenting himself with fielding him only during important meetings, whether in the Champions League or at other occasions. All this should not prevent the 2018 world champion from erasing his illustrious elder, OM legend, from the shelves.
