Mbappé's father with the Blues

Mbappé’s father with the Blues

Pitchside in the Düsselford stadium, Kylian Mbappé greeted his father Wilfrid before the first meeting of the French team at the Euro against Austria, Monday evening in Germany, with a former Christian Jeanpierre as a “guest”.

This was the cool image of the pre-match between the France team and Austria, Monday evening in Düsseldorf.
Kylian Mbappé, the captain of the Blues, found his father Wilfrid at the edge of the pitch a few minutes before the warm-up. Didier Deschamps and his players entered the competition at theEuro
in Germany. The 25-year-old superstar risks finding his father quite often on the sidelines of the French selection’s meetings. And for good reason.

Wilfrid Mbappé, 53, is in fact a consultant for the Togolese TV channel New World TV. The native of Cameroon had already offered his expertise on football on the set of this pan-African channel during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. This audiovisual group won – from Canal+ – the broadcast of the international competition in 19 countries on the continent! Basile Boli or Patrick Mboma were there, thanks to the work of Christian Jeanpierre.

The former Blues commentator on TF1 (from 2008 to 2016 alongside Bixente Lizarazu and obviously Arsène Wenger) is the editorial director of this very ambitious young channel. The sports journalist, aged 59, was able to enjoy the reunion between Wilfrid and Kylian before Austria-France with a smile.

Wilfrid Mbappé is now a well-known face among football fans on the African continent thanks to the treatment of the Qatari World Cup. New World TV took the opportunity, at the time, to acquire the TV rights for Euro 2024 but also those for 2028 in a large part of Africa. Mbappé fils should still be captain of the Blues in four years.
