Severely reframed by Kylian Mbappé on Twitter after an interview with the JDD, the president of the French Football Federation Noël Le Graët tried to smooth things over.
Between Kylian Mbappé and the French Football Federation, the rag is definitely burning on a regular basis, and once again in a public way. After the image rights case that pitted the Parisian striker against his federation during the last international break, this time it was a statement by the president of the FFF Noël Le Graët who brought Mbappé out of his hinges via his Twitter account this Sunday. In the JDD, the leader returned to Mbappé’s desire to stop the France team after the Euro and his missed penalty against Switzerland.
He stated in particular: “I had received him after the Euro, he found that the Federation had not defended him after his missed penalty and the criticism on the networks. We had seen each other for five minutes in my office. “I didn’t mean that, on the contrary, you have always been very nice.” He was angry, he no longer wanted to play in the France team – which he obviously did not think. You know what it is, he is a winner, he was very frustrated, like all of us, by the elimination… He is so publicized. He’s a great guy, much more collective than you think. »
A version of the story that Mbappé totally denied via his Twitter account, responding scathingly to Le Graët’s comments:
A few hours after this media outlet which ignited the net, the same Le Graët finally returned to his remarks and tried to minimize the event: ” I agree with him. I understood everything and there is no problem with Kylian. I have always had a deep attachment to his personality. »
