Kylian Mbappé, world icon. Like this giant poster in Times Square in the heart of New York, the 23-year-old world champion is recognized worldwide beyond football. Also, the United States isn’t really a big soccer country, let’s face it… Freed from his obligations with the French team and PSG, he’s not really vacationing in Uncle Sam’s country if he takes advantage of it on his trip to the NBA draft on Thursday, Mbappé is also in the “Big Apple” as part of his association IBKM, which aims to support young Parisians until they reach active life, but also to meet the so-called Omar, the former resident of the Bashar prisons al-Assad. “Maybe he’ll be impressed, but I’ll be a lot more.“, the tricolor national player continues to smile BFM TV.

Strictly speaking, number 7 embodies this new project. “I don’t know if I’m the total antiexample of bling-bling, if you got your head in Times Square you’re a little bit bling-bling (laughs)he jokes. But I’ve always made football my priority. For me you can’t really separate them, but I understand the message of the club. This message was also sent to me.»

In the last two years we have been less afraid

A message in the form of a kick in a Parisian anthill that took him to aim for the highest European peaks. “It’s the clear goal, presented, that’s what we want. But we know that there is a way that is to get unanimity at the national level, I don’t think we have done that in the last two years. We were less scary, we were less untouchable. Winning the Champions League is also made untouchable again because there isn’t much discussion in the championship, even if it takes the tension out of it. But we’re on our side and we’re doing what we can. I think it’s about finding those bases and then trying to conquer Europe“Emphasizes Mbappé, who also conjures up the optics of becoming the top scorer in the history of the capital club. “It can be good (smiles). It’ll be great if I can do it, but if I keep going like this there’s no reason why I can’t.‘ he lets go. With 170 hits, the prospect is just 30 lengths away from Edinson Cavani’s record (200).

One thing is certain: A few weeks ago it was extended and as “Cornerstone of the club projectof President Al-Khelaïfi, Mbappé does not want to pull the blanket down on him or vampire everything. “There was a PSG before me, there will be one after me. Everyone knows my ambition to leave my mark in this club. PSG has its identity and I’m just bringing my stone into the building. PSG will always be PSG, it has had that identity since it was founded fifty years ago. I just want to bring this beautiful page to this great book that is PSG‘ he says, repeating’The club comes before everyone elseincluding himself.”This is the club’s project, not mine. Things are clear from there and I’ll be back at the restart to do what I do best, play and score“, he continues.

Footballers, but not only

However, that doesn’t stop Mbappé from looking beyond football and making his voice heard off the field. “I was never in the habit of hiding. After that it’s a slippery field but I’m very cramped, I don’t want to just play football and go home. I’m a man of this society, like the others, everyone speaks their mind and my voice just carries a little more. I try to act according to my values ​​and my principles“He analyzes to be believing”the voices of people we don’t hear“. And to add:It can shift the lines and leave different marks than football, as a man. My football life will end one day. But my life as a man, I hope it goes on for a longer time… Although we always have to stay focused in our job, we are not trapped in this bubble and we know what is going on in society.» Head and Legs.
