This was stated by the president of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Graet, in an interview with Le Journal du Dimanche on Sunday.
Mbappe went scoreless in all four matches when France were surprisingly knocked out of the European Championship qualifiers in the quarter-finals. Switzerland was very good.
The 23-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star missed the crucial penalty in the penalty shootout against the Swiss.
The score was 3-3 in the match after overtime. After that, Mbappe was subjected to a lot of criticism.
– I met him after the European Championships. Football chief Le Great Le Journal du Dimanche said he felt the federation had not defended him after the penalty kick and the criticism he faced.
– We met for five minutes in my office. He was furious, and didn’t want to play for the French team anymore – something he clearly didn’t mean to, the 80-year-old continues.
on me Twitter Mbappé comes with another version of the case.
– I explained to him that it was primarily about racism, not the penalty kick. But he believes that there was no racism … the 23-year-old writes.
Mbappe has made nine caps for his country since last year’s disappointing European exit and helped France qualify for this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker stands with 27 goals in 57 internationals. This places him 11th on the all-time scorers list. Thierry Henry topped 51 hits.
