Kylian Mbappé, after the victory of the Blues against Austria: "What I am asked here is different"

“What did you think of the match?
We really didn't want to lose and go down in this league B. We really wanted to settle in the opposing camp, to mark our game... We tried a lot, lacked realism too. We score early in the second half, then we put in the break goal and then we managed a little bit. I think the audience had a great time.

"The coach says there will be a club rotation, we'll see how it goes"

Did you also need reassurance?
Sure. When you don't win for an entire gathering in the France team, it's complicated, but we had no doubts. We know our strengths, even with a lot of changes in the team. We have an incredible pool.

We felt you liberated like rarely tonight...
I play differently. I am asked other things here in relation to my club. I have a lot more freedom here. The coach knows that there is a number 9 like Oliv' who occupies the defenses and I can walk around and go into space. In Paris, it's different, there isn't that. I am asked to do the pivot, it is different.

Are you having more fun?
(Smile) I enjoy everywhere.

The matches follow one another, how do you feel physically?
Very well. The priority is selection. I hope I will play on Sunday. I am always ready to play, even in a club. The coach says there will be a club rotation, we'll see how it goes.

Are you happy with the agreements reached for image rights?
Yes. It was not me who found agreements. The whole team wanted that. Afterwards, I don't mind being on the front of the stage if it's beneficial for my teammates. Getting criticized won'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. »
