To cum Euro-JO would go against PSG's interests

World Cup 2018 with the Blues, Kylian Mbappé (20) has hinted that he could participate in the Olympic Football Tournament, open to players under the age of 24 (plus three "jokers" older), just after the Euro disputed in twelve cities in Europe. "Let us see. It is not at all to say & # 39; I will go & # 39 ;, it will have consequences for PSG. We have to talk to him again, because it was launched in the air like that. Didier (Deschamps), he doesn't care because he has played (Euro) before"Le Graët thought clearly.

To chain two tournaments of this kind after a whole season under the colors of Paris can be very risky on the physical level. If Mbappé does not take a vacation or does not create a real break, the accumulated fatigue can result in injury and disability to the player and his club at the beginning of the 2020-2021 financial year. Does the head of the FFF expect a phone from Paris coach Thomas Tuchel or Sports Manager Leonardo? "I need to see them"He reported and preferred to take the lead."Having already confirmed that Mbappé is still interested, or if there was a word in the air. I want to discuss with Leonardo. "

The manager of the FFF also said he would give carte blanche to Ripoll to build his team, including the identity of the three "jokers". Until imagining a convocation of Karim Benzema, set off in blue by Deschamps since the beginning of the case of blackmail sex tape against Mathieu Valbuena? "He can be elected, he is not suspended by the League ", Le Graet replied. "After that, it seems unlikely anyway. I don't see Sylvain Ripoll putting herself at odds with Didier. "
