“Mbappé wants to participate. “For the president of the French Football Federation Philippe Diallo, confirmed in office this Saturday, the observation is clear. The best player of the France team wants to take part in the Olympic festival of 2024 and he himself will push him in this direction. “There is a kind of higher interest of the country which must prevail. The whole world will be watching us. We must align our best team, with the captain of the Blues, ”assured Philippe Diallo in the newspaper Le Monde.

We experienced a form of stampede in Tokyo, I don’t want that to happen again, ”certified Philippe Diallo.

“Kylian Mbappé is here to make history”

To do this, substantive work must be carried out, according to him, with the clubs, in order to move forward in a common direction with the managers of the Olympic side: “We are going to undertake a work of conviction with Marc Keller. Sensitize French clubs, tell them that it is in the general interest to field the best players. By the end of the year, I want the clubs and coaches to be able to meet the Olympic people. Tony Estanguet, athletes so that he feels the vibration of the Games. »

Because for the boss of the FFF, the objective is clear. Showing well will not be enough: “With the best players, you can get on the podium and get a medal. And for that, Philippe Diallo wants to put the odds on his side. as a reminder, the French Olympic team can only field three players over the age of 23 in its workforce. So why deprive yourself of your best element among the three lucky ones? “Kylian Mbappé (24) is a record hunter, he is here to make history. To have a gold medal at the Paris Olympics will be a way of making history. »
