Criticized in Spain following his extension to Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappé (23 years old, 46 games and 39 goals in all competitions this season) can count on the authorities of French football. After the LFP (see the brief at 3:20 p.m.), the UNFP issued a very offensive press release to defend the French striker and push the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas.
The press release from the UNFP:
Since Kylian Mbappé announced his decision to continue his journey at Paris Saint-Germain rather than taking that of Real Madrid, Spain has been pushing its horn, which could be admitted if the Iberian was not so tough! We can hear, understand the disappointment of the people of Madrid and their compatriots, even knowing, especially in the world of football, that you don’t win every time and that it is possible “yes” to say “no” to Real Madrid, even for the third time.
But demonstrating to the point of incomprehension does not justify disrespecting the player, his club and all of French football in this way, unless we call into question the freedom for a footballer to sign a contract with the club of his choice? The arrogance of the remarks made here and there is shocking and there is no need here to reply to our Spanish friends that they have hardly any lessons to give to French football in terms of financial management, protectionism and equality…
Once again, the most enraged is Javier Tebas who, when it comes to PSG, forgets to turn his tongue in his mouth seven times before speaking. And his offensive, hateful remarks, without restraint or foundation, bring shame and discredit to him, especially with regard to his position. In the heart of the 70s, Jeannette sang “Porque te vas?”. But Kylian Mbappé will not leave, no offense to the president of the Spanish Professional Football League… So “Porque Tebas?” wonders the UNFP…
