By: Manu Tournoux

The President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron did not wish to comment on the future of Kylian Mbappé at Paris Saint-Germain.

At the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain next June, Kylian Mbappé continues to spark debates around its future. Questioned on this subject during an interview with France TV on Wednesday, the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron, who had already promised to“try to push” for his extension within the capital club in 2022, preferred to kick into touch.

“Kylian Mbappé is a very great footballer. It’s his birthday today ! His future ? I am not his agent…”, replied the Head of State before reaffirming his admiration for the 2018 world champion who celebrated his 25th birthday. “First, I wish him a very happy birthday. Then, he is a huge sportsman. He took the captaincy. In 2024, we have a Euro that I hope we will win. He is at the heart of a team where there will be young talents like Zaire-Emery. »

“It’s a promise and a feat”

Macron also praised the precocity of the native of Montreuil, who recently made his debut for the French team during the victory against Gibraltar (14-0) last November. “If there is an athlete who emerged this year, it’s him… Kylian Mbappé could have been the one from the year before or even the year before that. His young colleague (Warren Zaire-Emery, editor’s note) still joined the French team at the age of 17. I hope he will play at the Euro and do wonders for us. He is a promise and a feat. »
