While Kylian Mbappé has clearly shown the desire to play in the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024, the FFF is also counting on the PSG striker for this meeting, but not only.
World champion from the age of 19, Kylian Mbappé now dreams of Olympic gold with the Blues. Indeed, the PSG striker has never hidden his desire to play in the Olympics with the French delegation and even wanted to go to Tokyo this summer after participating in the Euro. “I wanted to participate, it was a goal but they quickly pulled the rug out from under me,” Mbappé admitted in an open letter published on Friday by L’Équipe. When you see what the French teams have achieved … We win in volleyball, in hand, we are a finalist in basketball against the United States. They went to look for gold and brought credit to France. I hope to experience that and do the same in 2024, with a team that would bring together the best players of the moment. »An ambition shared by the FFF.
Within the French Football Federation, we want to wash away the affront of the Tokyo Olympics, during which Sylvain Ripoll’s team was humiliated, in particular because of a team that had been heavily reshaped for the occasion. According to information from RMC, the FFF intends to present a competitive group in 2024 for the Paris Games, where the presence of Kylian Mbappé is logically expected alongside other major players. It remains to convince the clubs, in a position of strength since the dates of the Olympics are not included in the FIFA calendar. Either way, Kylian Mbappé fully intends to be part of the adventure, although the identity of his club in 2024 is still unclear.
