There are many things I will do with all the energy possible to help “Mbappé explained in front of the Elysee Palace. A statement that was not at everyone’s taste …
“You make me laugh softly”
“These European players of African descent who hold Africa in their hearts and want to help the African sport blah blah blah while rushing to play for a European selection, you make me laugh softly …

Assou-Ekoto, expelled last September … for a foul play on Mbappé

I think the referee was in a rush, “said the Metz player at the time, and the two men will soon be reunited, since the return leg at Parc des Princes will take place on March 10th.
