Come to meet the players of the France team this Thursday in Clairefontaine, the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron joked with Kylian Mbappé on the false transfer rumor launched recently in a video with YouTubers Mcfly and Carlito.
Thanks, little jokes, laughs … Emmanuel Macron is a big football fan, and he is also a big fan of Kylian Mbappé. New evidence this Thursday during the visit of the President of the Republic to Clairefontaine, on the eve of the start of the Euro.
While reviewing the players of the France team, the head of state stopped for a few tens of seconds with the Paris striker. First to thank him for having encouraged the population to be vaccinated on social networks, but not only.
“It’s okay, it’s okay”
“Good, and sorry for the transfer,” Macron then released to Mbappé. A direct reference to the fake announcement recently made in a video with famous YouTubers Mcfly and Carlito. Invited by the two friends to engage in a competition of true and false anecdotes, the leader had claimed to “take care of the career” of the PSG striker, and to have organized his transfer … to OM.
Reached by phone by the president, the world champion had obviously denied: “Impossible to go to Marseille, it is not in our DNA that”, he had fun. A few weeks later, Mbappé obviously does not hold it against the head of state.
“No, it’s okay, it’s okay,” he smiled this Thursday at Clairefontaine. And Macron to definitively defuse the bomb: “You have defended the colors well, so it happened with everyone.”
