French Football Association president Noel Le Grae attacked legend Zinedine Zidane while defending manager Didier Deschamps. Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain, PSG) came out hot.

On the 9th (Korean time), Mbappe posted on his Twitter, “Zidane is France. We have no lack of respect for the Legends.”

There was a reason he posted an article defending Zidane. Immediately, President Le Grae’s remarks became a problem.

Chairman Le Grae said in an interview with French media ‘RMC Sport’, “I know that Zidane has many supporters, and some are waiting for coach Didier Deschamps to leave.” wouldn’t have Should we make a special program for him to go to another team?” he criticized Zidane.

France recently renewed a contract with current coach Deschamps until the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America. Deschamps finished runner-up at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, but won the World Cup in Russia four years ago. Moreover, the World Cup in Qatar led the team to runner-up despite difficulties with injuries.

Previously, Deschamps’ tenure was at the World Cup in Qatar, so Zidane was mentioned as the next coach. Zidane was a proven manager enough to win three consecutive UEFA Champions League titles during his tenure at Real Madrid.

France chose Deschamps, but instead tried to protect him and instead attacked Zidane. Hearing this, Mbappe couldn’t help but be furious.
