Frolicking in the Olympic 2020, I don’t control everything, he told France Football publication. Of course, I need to go, then if my club, which is my employer, does not want me to go, I won’t force a clash. We’ll soon talk about it,
Mbappe has already reassured French national coach Didier Deschamps that taking part in Tokyo 2020 would not be at the expense of playing in Euro 2020, due to take place across Europe next summer.
“The head coach was obstinate that it would never be to the harm of the Euro, Mbappe said. I reassured him by telling him that I also wanted to play in the Euro, and he said: ‘So it’s up to you to deal with the people it concerns’.”
Euro 2020 is due to take place between June 12 and July 2 and will be followed by the football tournament at Tokyo Olympic, which is scheduled to start on July 23 – four days before the official opening of the Olympic 2020 Games – and finish with the final on August 8.
This day is the allowed start of the new 2020-2021 Ligue 1 term and Paris Saint-Germain may be unwilling to let a player they paid €180 million (£154 million/$201 million) for miss their opening match. The Olympic 2020 Games is an under-23 tournament with each side allowed three overage players.
France qualified for Tokyo Olympic by reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Italy and San Marino this year. On the time, Mbappe replied to the squad’s qualification by placement a message with a “Tokyo Olympic” on Twitter escorted by a flashing emoticon and a French flag.
Mbappe became the second teenager, after Pelé, to score in a World Cup Final when he hit one of France’s goals in their 4-2 victory over Croatia at Russia 2018, one of four he scored during the tournament. Even if he does not make it to Tokyo Olympic Mbappe insisted that it will not be the end of his Olympic 2020 dream.
“Uncertainty I do not manage to go in Olympic 2020, I’ll still have 2024 left, in Paris, he told France Football. I’d actually like to do the Olympics at least once in my career.”
