Mbappé, the big anger of Al-Khelaïfi


By: Manu Tournoux

Despite the serenity displayed, the president of PSG is particularly unhappy with Kylian Mbappé’s decision to leave the capital club at the end of the season.

The fire has been smoldering at PSG for several days. Consequence of the latest tremors which shake the capital club following the benching of Kylian Mbappé at half-time of the clash against Monaco on Friday. The French striker reacted by sitting in the stands alongside his mother, a few seats above Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, and this sequence was just as much commented on as the choice of the Spanish technician.

And if the Parisian president didn’t let anything show in the stands, his relatives also discussing several times with the French striker, he would have had a particularly bad time against his star player. The Qatari leader has certainly given the lie since the announcement by the Bondynois of his departure at the end of the season, seeming to accept this decision and putting his troops in motion to ensure his exit is successful.

“We don’t say no to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi”

But to believe The Team, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi would have taken the decision of the former Monegasque very badly. A decision that the Parisian boss feared but which he clearly did not expect. “ We don’t say no to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi or Qatar », Confided a connoisseur of PSG and the Emirate, adding: “ usually when they want something, they get it. Mbappé’s refusal is experienced as an affront, a betrayal. »

And the Emir’s cousin would experience this affront all the more badly as he feels he has done everything possible for Kylian Mbappé to continue the adventure in Paris. Beyond the XXL contract granted to the Parisian No. 7, he also accepted the departures of Lionel Messi and Neymar, validated the arrival of players close to the world champion – Ousmane Dembélé, Lucas Hernandez, Randal Kolo Muani – and created a environment to match with the arrivals of Luis Campos, sports advisor, Olivier Gagne, his deputy, or Julien Maynard, communications manager.
