The president of the French Football Federation said that he has talked to his counterpart in Argentina about how they keep making fun of Kylian Mbappe.
Emiliano Martinez, the goalkeeper for Argentina, was one of the people who didn’t agree with Mbappe’s claim that South American football wasn’t as advanced as it was in Europe. He hasn’t been afraid to make fun of the Paris Saint-Germain forward.
After the team won the World Cup, Martinez asked for a “moment of silence” for Mbappe in the locker room. He then took a baby doll with a picture of Mbappe’s face on it to the public celebrations in his home country.
Things got so bad that some Argentina fans burned a coffin that said “Mbappe” on it. Ouest-France says that Noel Le Graet, the president of the FFF, has asked Chiqui Tapia, the president of the Argentina Football Association, to explain the joke.
“I wrote a letter to my counterpart at the Argentine Federation. I find these overreactions strange in the context of a sports competition and find it hard to understand them.”
Le Graet says that. “They go too far with things. Mbappe’s behaviour has been great.” Bruno Le Maire, who is in charge of the French economy, has also spoken out against Argentina’s taunting and asked FIFA to punish La Albiceleste.
“What is the role of FIFA?” What he said. “Sport is about fair play, respecting others, and treating the loser with respect instead of insulting them.”
