We knew Kylian Mbappé accused of all the evils by many French people after this final missed goal in the match between the France team and Switzerland, Monday, and a mixed record of Euro 2021. But the injustice does not end there for the young prodigy, who is now the target of a false publication on Facebook.
According to the latter, posted on June 29 by the Ebène Sport account – a sports news page followed by just under 500,000 subscribers – Real Madrid coach Zinédine Zidane, who does not hide his desire to become the next coach of the France team, would have had very harsh words for the striker: “I do not like to speak publicly about an individual player. However, Kylian M’bappé quickly needs to revisit something that can hurt his career, and that thing is his ego. France has had bigger legends that have never shown such an ego. I’m afraid if he continues like this, he will drown. “
However, it is impossible to find any trace of such a declaration, whether in the French or foreign press.
The Sports Department of 20 Minutes No matter how much she looked for it everywhere, this statement attributed to Zinédine Zidane cannot be found anywhere. Yet such a bomb, which is dropped by a living legend of French football, it makes noise. Who would imagine that sentences like these could be uttered by the former captain of the French team, usually so reserved in character, without finding its place in the columns of The team ? Who among sports specialists could miss information like this? Nobody.
“I’ve known Zinédine Zidane since 2021, and it’s not him. He would never say such things in public about a player he knows personally, and that he could coach in the future, ”a sports journalist from the Spanish daily told us. The country, confirming at the same time that the Spanish press had never dealt with such information.
This statement would also not be in line with what Zinédine Zidane might have said about Kylian Mbappé in the future. In April 2021, the PSG striker was part of a little bluesy after a failed international break with the Blues, and said he was “tired” of criticism against him, considering himself too scrutinized. The 1998 world champion, at a press conference, then had comforting words for the young Frenchman : “Football has always been like that. […] There will always be criticism when it gets worse. And there will be wonderful things about him when he is good. It will never change. A sentence obviously still relevant.
