has achieved a big blow by bringing together the star of its consultants, Thierry Henry and the best player in the championship, Kylian Mbappé, in an interview which will be broadcast in full on Sunday evening. To turn things up, our colleagues have unveiled a few extracts in recent days and the rendering promises to be crisp between two men who know how to talk to the media and stand out with their XXL charisma.

So it's just for that, no ...?
In a fluid verbal ping-pong, the number 7 of PSG concedes with his usual frankness: “

Afterwards, if it serves me so much the better
All in a burst of laughter.
