Mbappe again clashes with the French Football Federation over bookmakers

The main star of world football, Kylian Mbappe, openly opposes advertising of fast food and gambling. Because of his principled position, the player for the second time this year entered into a confrontation with the French Football Federation on the eve of the team's next matches in the League of Nations.

Kylian Mbappe in the French national team

One of the main sponsors of the French national team is the bookmaker Betclic. According to the agreement, before important matches, the partner arranges a joint event at which the players must be present. The company also selects five national team players to participate in promotions.

Mbappe missed the dinner party and refused to advertise gambling. Moreover, the PSG forward has another claim, he considers it unfair that the team leaders he, Pogba and Benzema are always chosen for advertising. According to Kilian, it would be logical to involve all players, including young ones.

In addition to the Betclic bookmaker, the French team has contracts with KFC and Coca Cola. The tricolor star doesn't like them either.

Mbappe's tricks can cost a lot for the federation, because ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, partners plan to receive high-quality advertising content during the tournament.
