Coronavirus: Kylian Mbappe donates to Abbe Foundation Pierre charity amid COVID-19 crisis

Published

on

The Abbe Pierre Foundation has confirmed Kylian Mbappe has made a large donation to assist their cause amid the coronavirus crisis.

Kylian Mbappe has made a generous donation to the Paris-based charity Abbe Pierre Foundation as France continues to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Ligue 1, along with the vast majority of other sporting competitions, has been put on hold amid the crisis, with over 27,000 confirmed deaths worldwide.

France has 32,964 confirmed cases of the illness and, in a bid to assist the work of the Abbe Pierre Foundation, Paris Saint-Germain and France star Mbappe has donated a large sum to the charity.

“Concerned about the consequences of the serious health crisis which strikes our country, but also of all the consequences which it can generate on the most fragile people, Kylian Mbappe has just made a very large donation to support the work of the Abbe Pierre Foundation,” the charity said in a statement.

“His generosity will make it possible in particular to implement first aid actions: access to water and hygiene for people in very precarious situations, access to food and shelter for homeless people.

“The Foundation sends its most sincere thanks to Kylian Mbappe for his generosity and his attention towards people in great precariousness.”

 

The charity did not confirm how much Mbappe had donated.

Earlier this week, it was reported Cristiano Ronaldo and his agent Jorge Mendes had donated a large sum to three intensive care units for coronavirus patients at hospitals in Portugal, while a hospital in Barcelona announced Lionel Messi had pledged money to support them during the crisis.

End of the road for Choupo-Moting at PSG?

Published

on

Recruited by Thomas Tuchel  as a “supplement” player, Choupo-Moting was quickly adopted internally, both by the squad’s managers and by the players but his performances were below expectation, giving way to a series of disapprobation from PSG fans and sports analysts.

His heroic entry  against Atalanta with the winning goal at the 93rd minute in the quarter-finals of the Champions League therefore changed prospects and attitude towards him. Fans and some players would like the management to extend the 31-year-old for another season, as L’Equipe reported on Monday, the day after the final defeat to Bayern (0-1).

Unfortunately, the Indomitable Lion didn’t feature regularly for PSG (9 appearance in the Ligue 1 championship), but he can still make a decent reserve.
According to PSG pundits, Leonardo (PSG’s sporting Director) is working on the arrival of an additional international-level center-forward, called to be a “joker” behind the Mbappe-Icardi-Neymar trio, or even to become a starter in case Icardi doesn’t live up to expectation.

Under these conditions, it is far from certain that he is offering a new lease to Choupo Moting, as he looks forward to the recruitment of a free agent forward who will be offering more guarantees than the Cameroonian.
