Noël Le Graët buries Kylian Mbappé's Olympic hopes


Asked this Tuesday at our colleagues from RTL, the president of the FFF brushed off Mbappé's Olympic desires with the back of his hand.

Candidate declared to participate in the Tokyo Olympic Games with the Bleuets, Kylian Mbappé saw his ambitions thwarted by Noël Le Graët.

Present on the airwaves of RTL this Tuesday morning, the president of the FFF spoke on the subject, in a rather laconic way: “

The Games?

No, he's dreaming.

It's going to be complicated.

Between the Euro where we hope to go far enough and the gap with the start of the Olympics, the internships, that seems utopian to me today


Paris 2024 as a target

If Le Graët has always been enthusiastic about the idea of ​​seeing the native of Bondy compete in the Olympics, he rather hopes to see Mbappé in Paris 2024. “

I found it very healthy

(that he wants to do the Olympics, Editor's note).

But now he is talking more about 2024. So I am reassured for the next month

, ”said the former president of EA Guingamp.

News that should reassure the leaders of Paris Saint-Germain, reluctant to see their star compete in the Euro and the Olympics.

The Parisian club is no doubt hoping for a similar turnaround for the Brazilians Neymar and Marquinhos, who have also expressed their desire to compete in the next Olympics in Tokyo.
