PSG: Emmanuel Macron shares his great admiration for Kylian Mbappé in a letter

Emmanuel Macron is a supporter of Olympique de Marseille. But the President of the Republic has great admiration for Kylian Mbappé, whom he greeted in a letter intended for the French striker and published this Thursday in L’Equipe.

The Head of State is a fan of the PSG player, who never ceases to impress on the field and who occupies the 1st place in the ranking of the “30 who make French football” established by the sports daily in front of Karim Benzema and his teammate Lionel Messi. Known for being close to the native of Bondy, he paid him tribute both for his footballing and human qualities.

“Kylian Mbappé, an extraordinary precocity as evidenced by an impressive collection of records both in club and in selection, where only a certain Pelé does better than him. Everyone obviously wishes him to make this promise come true by building the best track record in European football and above all to continue to enchant the public with his jubilant gestures, his brilliant passes and his magical goals. We know it can, ”wrote Emmanuel Macron, before highlighting his exemplary nature.

“If Kylian Mbappé has taken a special place in the hearts of the French, it is also through his attitude on and off the pitch. Hard work, first come to training, last gone. Foolproof fair play, as much with the greatest footballers on the planet as with amateur clubs in the Coupe de France. Far from the excesses that sometimes accompany fame, he embodies calm, quiet ambition, his gaze towards the stars but his head on his shoulders. So Kylian Mbappé never forgets to return to Seine-Saint-Denis and in particular to Bondy, where for him it all began, ”added the president, emphasizing his strength of character.

“Everything could have changed last summer during the Euro and this missed shot on goal. His ability to assume, recognize, overcome and go back to the assault is the signature of a very great champion, ”insisted Emmanuel Macron, who also highlighted his commitment off the pitch. “The association he created supports young people from the department (Seine-Saint-Denis) to enable them, too, to make their dreams come true. She also, during confinement, distributed meals for isolated and modest elderly people. The number 10 of the France team – it took a footballer of this dimension to succeed Zinédine Zidane – chose the risk of engagement. For vaccination, against violence, in communion with the emotions of the country: Kylian Mbappé has a rare awareness of his role, the weight of his words, the force of his actions. “

And for the head of state, this is just the beginning. He is convinced that Kylian Mbappé, who turned 23 last December, has not finished surprising. “I am sure of one thing, he will continue to amaze us,” he concluded.
