Kylian Mbappe, the Prince of Paris, the human Donatello, is a humble man, a simple man, an honest man, a young man, and a noble student of association football who embraces the big picture with full and complete understanding. He knows very well that his career is not defined by not by scoring in a FIFA World Cup Final or by lifting the trophy with his teammates.

Mbappe believes that in order to truly leave a legacy on the world game, it is important to give back to the world game and inspire the young, the disadvantaged, the forgotten, to have the seeds sown to start their own legacies. Premiers de Cordee is a charity in France that gives free sports instruction to hospitalized and disabled children. A noble cause deserves noble compatibility by a noble football, a champion of France, a champion of the world, a champion of the finest people.

And so, Mbappe announced that he would donate his share of the prize money to Premiers de Cordee so that those who may have lost hope will not lose it again. And Mbappe has a history with Premiers de Cordee. Since 2017, he has supported this charity and believes in its message, its intensions, its purpose.

“Kylian, he’s a great person,” said Sebastien Ruffin general manager of Premiers de Cordee, to Le Parisien. “When his schedule allows it, he [practices with] 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.”

The winnings for Mbappe include a bonus of $350,000 for a total of $500,000. And with humility and selflessness comes the temptation to be swayed by other champions, such as Real Madrid, who Mbappe idolized when Cristiano Ronaldo was still with the club.

Well, CR7 is now a Juventus player, and it’s very clear that the long-term project for the best team in French club football involves the Prince of Paris at Le Parc des Princes in spades. And with Paris Saint-Germain Football Club covering their losses to be certified kosher with the Financial Fair Play authorities of UEFA, only one hashtag matters: #SeQueda. Or, in French, #IlReste.

“I will stay with PSG, continuing on my path with them,” Mbappe told reporters when he was asked this very hard question. “I am at the beginning of my career.”
