Kylian Mbappe’s dad, Wilfrid has blasted critics who slammed his son after France’s Euro 2020 qualifying victory vs Moldova last week.
Mbappe struggled to make an impact on the right-hand side of the French attack, with Raphael Varane and Olivier Giroud scoring the needed goals for Didier Deschamps’ team.
However, according to Wilfrid, the best is yet to come for his boy. He admitted that Mbappe had an off day but that does not mean his quality and commitment to France should be doubted.
His words, “He who knows nothing is a smart man when he shuts up,”
“Some people should do more thinking through. Criticism, we have dealt with since he began his career.
“Since he was small, he has only known football, a package of good things and less good things.
“People will like you, others won’t. You have to accept it and let it run its course. It evaporates with time.
“I’ve known for a long time that football is amnesiac and that a bad match can bring a lot of things into question. Thursday, he was not so good, he did things not as well, that is a fact.
“But I remain surprised at the interventions from certain people who know him and see him often speak. Each to their own view. Debates about Kylian accompany both him and his journey.
“To reassure everyone, we deal with it just fine. We have no worries about the fact that the best is yet to come.”
