Mbappé, the big rant


By: Manu Tournoux

While Real Madrid should deprive Kylian Mbappé of the Olympic Games, Jérôme Rothen does not hide his anger towards the Spanish club.

Kylian Mbappé had been clear about the Olympic Games. The Bondynois wishes to participate in this immense world sporting event, which will take place in Paris next summer. But he also indicated that everything would depend on his future ” employer “who would decide (or not) to release him for this competition.

If the Blues striker had decided to stay at PSG, this could have been negotiated more easily. But with Real Madrid, it will be no. The Merengues have already written to the FFF to indicate that one of their foreign players would not be authorized to play in the Olympics. This therefore concerns Eduardo Camavinga, possibly Aurélien Tchouaméni. And therefore undoubtedly Kylian Mbappé.

“Class cannot be bought”

For Jérôme Rothen, it is a lack of class on the part of the Spanish club. “ Real Madrid can thank the French players who have given it a lot in recent years: (Zinédine) Zidane, (Karim) Benzema, (Raymond) Kopa at the time… All of them, including today’s internationals, have allowed Real to win the most beautiful competitions and become the best club in the world. Today, with this decision not to release its players, I have the impression that there is too often a lack of class on the part of the clubs. I feel that sending a letter like that is showing your authority, there is no real exchange,” regrets the RMC consultant.

And Rothen continued: “Real blocks its players, especially its French, but you can still talk to them. I can understand the position where it is not possible to play two international competitions during the same summer, but class cannot be bought and I find that when you have won everything, you can understand that a player like ( Kylian) Mbappé, who should join the club, wants to represent his country at the Paris Olympics. You’re going to lose it for a month, so what? He’s going to sign for five years, it’s not a big deal. »
