Zapping Foot National Top 10: the best active Ligue 1 scorers
One thing is for sure, these two will not be spending their holidays together. A few months after the episode about image rights, Kylian Mbappé and Noël Le Graët rejoined this weekend. Last March, at the previous meeting of the French team, it all started with the refusal of the 23-year-old striker to take part in a photo shoot with certain sponsors of the French Football Federation (FFF). What caused the misunderstanding of the boss of the 3F, who met the representatives of the Paris player in early June, when a delegation consisting of five players on their feet. Including the Paris Saint-Germain striker, of course. But in recent days, the two men have argued on a very different topic.
During an interview with Journal Du Dimanche (JDD), Noël Le Graët confided that after the European Championship, Kylian Mbappé “believed that the Federation had not defended him after his missed penalty and the criticism of networks.” The president went even further in confidence, saying that the 2018 world champion was “angry, he didn’t want to play for the French team anymore”. What the main stakeholder immediately replied on Twitter: “Yes, finally I explained to him that it was mainly about racism and NO to the punishment. But he thought there had been no racism…”. And according to information from the Parisian, Kylian Mbappé and his entourage would be very “shocked” by the release of Noël Le Graët with the JDD… Enough to regain some fire between the two men, a few months now into the World Cup Qatar.
