13 things we loved this weekend: Mbappe, Bielsa, Robertson & more
South Korea’s K-League kicked off this weekend as football showed signs of gearing up for its return around the world.
Elsewhere, Marcelo Bielsa once again stole our hearts and Kylian Mbappe provided a nice gesture towards a rival player.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
The K League returned with a bang.

Yang Dong Hyun
Genuinely our new favourite league.
Lee Sang Hun
A very cheeky dummy.
Remember football? Good, innit?
He should be in charge of the whole of football.
We love him. We love him. We love him. We love him. https://t.co/XHy53oIuxw

The Leeds legend, who sadly passed away recently, was given a fitting send off by his former club.

Maybe he’s not as much of a sh*thouse as we like to think he is.
Liverpool's @andrewrobertso5 on Leo Messi:
"The shove? It's disrespectful to the best player who's ever played the game. I do regret it.
He's the best player ever to play the game in my opinion.
The stuff he does is frightening. You just need to guess to defend against him." pic.twitter.com/KXxBiIfhfO

A nice gesture towards the joint-top goalscorer in Ligue 1.
Kylian Mbappe has called for Wissam Ben Yedder to receive a share of the Ligue 1 golden boot.
Both players scored 18, but Mbappe was given the award as all of his goals came from open play, whereas three of Ben Yedder's came from the penalty spot.

Please let this happen.
38-year-old striker Djibril Cissé willing to play for a Ligue 1 side completely for free, so he can score 4 more times in the division to join the 100 goals club:
"If a club would accept, I can get them in two or three months. I am pretty determined." https://t.co/v5UlQkaSdj

The real OG. F*ck Zlatan.
🇨🇮 Didier Drogba has been voted by fans as the best striker in the 🇫🇷 French Ligue 1 for the past 20 years!
Drogba played for Guingamp & Marseille before switching from France to England.
He beat Zlatan Ibrahimović to this award.

A sharp shooter at two sports.
Charlie Austin claims second place as he pins D6 to defeat James Maddison 2-1 to round off the afternoon with a 50 average!
He enjoyed that one! pic.twitter.com/vGnSoHLkBI
