Speaking in an interview with L’Équipe, French Football Federation President Noël Le Graët discussed the possibility of PSG attacker Kylian Mbappé participating in this summer’s Olympic Games in Japan.
“He wants to win the Champions’ League, EURO 2020 and the Olympic Games… he wants it. Our manager (Sylvain Ripoll) really wants that to happen (Mbappé at the Olympics). I would quite like for him to be at the Olympics, notably for the image it sends. He is a boy who is already at the top. But let me put myself in PSG’s place for a moment. They might not want him to do all the competitions. But I don’t think they will oppose it. In terms of the image it would send, it would be difficult for them. And for us, it is difficult not to select him.”
