Video: Didier Deschamps Discusses the Decision Made by Kylian Mbappe to Snub Real Madrdi and Stay at PSG

It’s been over a week since Kylian Mbappe officially announced that he would remain with Paris Saint-Germain and sign a contract extension rather than heading to Real Madrid.

Mbappe wants to make history with his hometown club and bring the city the first UEFA Champions League trophy, which would make him a god in the city since no one has done that before.

France national team manager Didier Deschamps spoke about Mbappe’s decision to stay at PSG and his attachment to the French giants.

“It’s his choice. What is obvious that he stays in Ligue 1 is a very good thing for French football. He is attached to the club; he said what he had to say but being French, it can only be a good thing, assures the coach of the France team. We can grow by staying. Today the objective of PSG is the same as in all the big clubs; it is to win the Champions League,” Deschamps said at his press conference.

“It may be brought one day to go abroad, but it is not an obligation. We are not going to talk about other periods when there was a lag compared to France. But today, the choice of players is not the same. It is perhaps less an obligation to go abroad to accomplish beautiful things.”
