The PSG striker had announced a few hours earlier on Monday his desire to boycott the photo scheduled for the next day. An attitude that caused a chill wind near Clairefontaine before the arrival of Noël Le Graët in the afternoon. The president had planned to see the executives on this subject and he was not disappointed.
Accompanied by François Vasseur, the marketing director of the FFF, but also by Kylian Mbappé, Hugo Lloris (withdrawn and replaced by Lafont but remained for the occasion), Raphaël Varane and Didier Deschamps (usually not present in this type of discussion), Le Graët quickly realized the emergency.
During this exchange which lasted thirty minutes, the president noted that since the exchanges carried out with the entourage of Kylian Mbappé and the marketing department of the FFF, nothing had progressed on this important subject of the convention. Which made people cringe … According to various witnesses, he took the lead in leading the debates, before waiting for the return of the players who quickly decided to validate this agreement.
They are the ones who asked for a press release from the FFF to be sure of the progress of things. Request accepted by the President. Satisfied with the progress, Le Graët set off again in the wake of Clairefontaine. And Kylian Mbappé will be present this Tuesday for photos with the rest of the group during the marketing operations planned at Clairefontaine.
