“Getting criticized won’t change the way I play and live” – Kylian Mbappe makes bold statement on image rights controversy with French FA

In response to the image rights row with the French Football Federation, Kylian Mbappe has revealed he doesn’t mind being in the spotlight for the right cause.

On Tuesday (September 20), the Paris Saint-Germain forward flatly refused to take part in a photoshoot with the France national team over a disagreement over image rights (via Goal). The player denied that the image rights standards were unfair to the French players. The French Football Federation, meanwhile, have revised the clauses in the agreement, which pleases Mbappe.

Mbappe won the ‘battle’ for image rights with FFF ahead of the World Cup. He knows his worth.

After the dispute, the No. 7 PSG revealed that he was happy with the result, claiming he didn’t mind leading the charge on behalf of his teammates. The France forward told L’Equipe (via Goal):

“Yes [I’m happy with what happened this week]. I wasn’t the only one who found similarities. That’s what the whole team wanted. After that, I don’t mind being up front on stage if it’s an advantage for my teammates. Being criticized doesn’t change the way I play and live. If it can help the band, I don’t mind. I think the whole group is happy.”
