Blues: after Mbappé, Griezmann and Giroud, another executive is applying for the Olympics!

An important player on the French team has expressed his desire to participate in the Olympic Games.

While the deadline is fast approaching, the great vagueness continues around the Olympic football tournament. The “no” votes are spreading at the same speed as the names… Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud have all expressed, over the past year, their desire to take part in the Paris Olympics.

But faced with potential refusals from their clubs (current or future), these influential executives of the France team could remain at the dock. This does not prevent other major players in the France group from applying in turn.

“It would be a pleasure to participate”

This Tuesday, it was Adrien Rabiot who publicly expressed his desire to participate in the event. “ Personally it would be a pleasure to compete in the Olympic Games. We rarely have the opportunity and in Paris it would be exceptional. I wouldn't be the only one to decide if this were to happen.“.

We should sit around a table to discuss because these are not FIFA dates. It's the resumption of the championship and there is a risk of injury for the players. It would be a pleasure to participate, it remains discussions and the position of the clubs is understandable. That would be a discussion to have. I haven't received a phone call but of course I would like to participate. It should be discussed“, concluded the former Parisian.
