Kylian Mbappé: “My parents didn’t tell me about the sums. How do you bring up a 14-year-old after telling him he’s worth millions?”

In an interview with Paris Match, PSG forward Kylian Mbappé (22) explained how he doesn’t see money as the main motivator in his career.

“It’s life experience that counts, more than making money, even if that’s important because we have families to look after. Above all, I thirst for discoveries, travel, meeting other players, different cultures… It was a bit difficult at the beginning, this feeling of being considered a star. Fortunately, my parents didn’t tell me about the sums. They did the right thing, how do you bring up a 14-year-old kid after telling him he’s worth millions of dollars? Because of that, I have a quiet relationship with money. I know it’s important, I’m happy to have it, but that’s not what drives me every second of every day.”
