Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Kalidou Koulibaly’s “Little Brother” interview!
It was a media release that was expected, and it did not disappoint. Invited on the set of the famous program “El Chiringuito”, Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, was logically invited to speak about the failed transfer of Kylian Mbappé. The French international, close to joining Spain, finally decided to extend the adventure with Paris, following in particular a phone call from the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron. An intervention that surprised the boss of the White House.
“Mbappé’s dream was to join Madrid, he always bought our shirts, but the situation changed because of political and economic pressure Macron called Mbappé, it makes no sense. PSG offered him to be the leader of the project, that changed everything. I didn’t see the same Kylian Mbappé that we wanted. Here, no one is bigger than Real Madrid. That won’t change (…). Mbappé’s mother wanted him to come to Madrid because it’s her son’s dream. She was sad,” he said. In addition, he also pointed the finger, without naming it, at Qatar: “Mbappé was pressed by 2 different countries and they managed to confuse him”.
The president of Real Madrid also tackled the player for his negotiations with the FFF about his image rights: “When I saw Mbappé’s problems with the French Federation about his image rights, I was shocked. I told myself that it was not my Mbappé.”
