France’s Kylian Mbappe wowed the world during the FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia with a display of his awe-inspiring skills. It came as no surprise when the 19-year-old adjudged the best young player for scoring four goals and playing a pivotal role in France’s triumph in the World Cup 2018.
But Mbappe has given us another reason to adore him as the Paris Saint Germain striker decided to donate his earnings from the tournament to Premiers de Cordee – a charity that gives free sports instruction to hospitalised and disabled children in sports.
“Kylian, he’s a great person,” Sebastien Ruffin, general manager of Premiers de Cordee, told Le Parisien. “When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure. He has a very good relationship with children, he always finds the right words to encourage them. I sometimes even feel that he takes more pleasure to play with the kids than the kids themselves,” he said.
Sports Illustrated reported that Mbappe earns about £17,000 per game with bonuses. It has also been reported that Mbappe received a £265,000 bonus (nearly $350,000) as France won the tournament. France defeated Croatia 4-2 in the final Sunday (July 15). Mbappe has been supporting the organisation since June 2017.
