Ligue 1 introduce new protocol that means only Kylian Mbappe can wear a special badge on his PSG shirt

KYLIAN MBAPPE will don a special badge on his PSG shirt after Ligue 1 introduced a new protocol.

The French forward has been in terrific form this season having already scored 14 goals in the league.

This record has seen Mbappe, 24, climb to the top of the scoring leaderboard in Ligue 1.

As a result, he will now get to wear a special badge on his shirt that symbolises that he is the top scorer in the division.

Ligue 1 announced the new badge in order to recognise the most prolific forward ahead of each matchday.

The badge will be placed above Mbappe’s name on the back of his shirt.

It is a gold hexagon with a white “S” and a gold “1” on the inside.

A statement from Ligue 1 read: “More than just a badge, the S1 is a genuine design object conceived by Tyrsa, an artist who has already made a name for himself on a number of occasions, in collaboration with prestigious brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Moncler, and with artists such as FKA Twigs and Childish Gambino.

“The S1 badge symbolises the meeting of the letter ‘S’ for ‘Scoreur’ and the number ‘1’, joined together on a circuit that illustrates the race among the goalscorers.

“On closer inspection, you can also see the 34 lines that make up the background, like the 34 rounds of the Ligue 1 Uber Eats campaign.

“All in gold, to symbolise excellence and the highest place in the rankings.”

Mbappe wore the badge for PSG’s clash against Monaco on Friday evening, in which he netted his latest goal this season.

PSG won the game 5-2 at the Parc des Princes as they extended their lead to the top of the table to four points before Saturday’s fixtures.

The French international will likely have the badge on his shirt for a while as he is currently seven goals ahead of the next prolific forward in the division.

Montpellier forward Akor Adams has scored seven goals in 11 matches this season and will need to go on a hot-streak in order to catch up.

Meanwhile, Mbappe is still being linked with a move away from the French giants.

Real Madrid have reportedly ruled themselves out of the running, which has opened the door to Premier League sides.

Liverpool and Manchester United have both been tipped with an interest in the attacker.
