This time Mbappé thanks everyone

A dispute between Kylian Mbappé and Nasser Al Khelaifi is said to have “shaken the walls”. The club has since denied the media report – and Mbappé has made up for what he previously failed to do

In the coming season, the French players’ union UNFP will have to come up with something new. The past five times it had it easy when it came to voting for the player of the season – the winner was Kylian Mbappé every time.

His acceptance speech was eagerly awaited. Last Friday, before his last home game in PSG kit, he posted a video in which he did not thank everyone. In it, Mbappé said goodbye to fans without making any reference to President Nasser Al Khelaifi or the Emir of Qatar. This is said to have led to a major row between Al Khelaifi and Mbappé. According to Le Parisien, the argument was so intense that “the walls were shaking”.

Intentionally or not, this time Mbappé made up for lost time. “I thank the whole club, the coach who helped and trusted me, his staff, the doctors, all the people at the club, the sporting management, the president, the club’s shareholders and of course the Emir of Qatar, who found me at the age of 18, who accompanied me in all my decisions, who understood me in many situations,” said the now 26-year-old.

Mbappé had scored in the 3-1 defeat to Toulouse, but in addition to much applause and a tribute from the Ultras, there were also a few whistles. He was also denied an early substitution and thus a special applause. However, Mbappé was keen to smooth things over on Monday. “I thank Luis Enrique for letting me play this game,” he said. “I will miss this stadium a lot. The fans are very demanding, but they just want to love you. “

PSG deny dispute between president and Mbappé

Mbappé did not respond to the alleged dispute with the president, but the club has since denied the reports to Spanish newspaper Marca. “It’s disappointing to see more fake news circulating this afternoon. There has been no dispute,” said club sources on Monday. “The president and Kylian have met regularly before games to set the terms of his departure at the end of the season. All meetings were constructive and respectful, including before last night’s game.”

Where Mbappé is heading is an open secret, but he is not yet talking openly about his move to Real Madrid. “Now I’m turning a new page in my life. Everything that comes next is very exciting,” he said about his future. The only thing that is clear to him is that he is leaving Paris, “the rest has not yet been decided.”
