Coming to a week after 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe guided the French national team to its second World Cup title after 20-years of waiting.
However, Mbappe’s huge talent could be helping Cameroon to qualify for the World Cup if it was not for money.
Wilfried Mbappe, the father of Kylian Mbappe, yesterday revealed that his son would be donning a Cameroonian shirt had it not been for the colossal amounts of money the football federation asked to include him on the squad.
“I wanted my son to play for Cameroon national team but the football federation charged a certain amount that I didn’t have but France didn’t charge me a penny,” Mbappe said.
Mbappe was born in Paris. His father who also doubles as his agent comes from Cameroon while his mother Fayza Lamari is from Algeria.
Love of money will kill africans
I’m a whole lot of “what not to expect.”
