Mbappé’s first speech in the selection since June 15?
The players of the French team will return to Nice next Friday, where the match against Gibraltar will be played. Didier Deschamps will hold his match night press conference from 5 p.m., accompanied by a player.
This could be captain Kylian Mbappé, who has not spoken for the selection since June 15 before the first leg against Gibraltar. The forward has since missed all pre-match press conferences during the September and October rallies, mainly to avoid answering questions about his future as his contract with PSG expires next June.
He is also not very talkative at the club, even though he spoke last Saturday after the victory in Reims (0-3) to return to his troubled summer between the letter to indicate his choice not to take the option for another year exercise, then his exclusion from the pro-group.
“The most important thing for me, what I wanted, was to play football,” the player confided to Amazon Prime Video. “I’ll leave the rest to you, you do it right. I don’t want to talk about exaggerating. I think there’s enough already.”
