‘Like a Politician’ – Kylian Mbappé Faces Backlash Over PSG Exit Video Amid Impending Real Madrid Move

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé announced on Friday that he will leave the club after this season, when his contract with the Ligue 1 side expires next month. 

A farewell speech of over three minutes, during which the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner expresses his thanks, admits to some mistakes, declares his love for the club, and, of course, announces his departure for “a new challenge.”

Nonetheless, the method of the announcement didn’t sit well with RMC Sport’s Daniel Riolo, who stated that the entire video felt like watching a politician. 

“I have the feeling that Mbappé wants to embody everything that is new in our society, in our football,” Riolo said on RMC Sport. I just can’t get behind itI don’t understand. Doing this on his social media to control everything, word for word, down to the last comma… Like a top student. Every word is weighed. 

“When he’s interviewed, off the cuff, he does very well. He’s an intelligent guy who expresses himself well. Why make it so complicated, to be ultimately insincere by preparing everything? It’s like a politician. It displeased me… the form. Everything is calculated, it lacks sincerity… Give a good interview in a media outlet, have an exchange! There’s no exchange there.”

Now, the transfer saga enters its final chapter as the world eagerly awaits the official announcement of his signing with Real Madrid. According to reports, the Frenchman will wait until after the UEFA Champions League final to officially present himself as a Real Madrid player.

While the transfer window isn’t open yet, the capital club can now begin a new era, one without the 25-year-old.
