They also wore their new home kit with Rico’s name on the back.
During the match, Mbappe scored a penalty, putting PSG 2-0 ahead. He celebrated by holding up Rico’s shirt. PSG canceled their Ligue 1 trophy celebrations as a sign of respect. Rico’s wife made an emotional plea on social media, expressing her love and hoping for his recovery.
