Speaking to Canal Plus, as relayed by PSG Talk, Nasri said Mbappe has all the qualities to become the best player in the world, but he must steer clear of off-field distractions and concentrate on his football to earn adulation from fans.
Nasri said, “The player is fantastic. He is, for me, in the future, the best player in the world; he has all the qualities for it. But he is in too many stories: the image rights of the French team, the penalty gate, yesterday that, before that a year to make his choice between PSG and Real Madrid, where he left all the world in suspense.
“When your name comes out too much, people start getting tired of you. He has so much talent. As soon as there is a rumour about him, he should deny it if it is not true and play football. And everyone will start loving him again.”
In a 2018 interview with Time, Mbappé spoke about the sacrifices he made as a teenager to focus on his football development: “I did not have the moments of so-called normal people during adolescence, like going out with friends, enjoying good times.” But despite missing out on a “normal” life, Mbappé states he is “living the life he always dreamed of”. Just over four years after making his professional debut he had gotten over 50 million Instagram followers. While he admits his “life has been totally turned upside down” since he first entered the spotlight, he says he is “happy”.
On 25 June 2021, Kylian’s brother Ethan signed an “aspiring” contract with Paris Saint-Germain in a deal lasting until 2024.
