Kylian Mbappé in Cameroon: due to security fears, the match against a D2 team canceled

The schedule was changed at the last minute. Visiting Cameroon since Thursday, the country of origin of his father Wilfrid, Kylian Mbappé was due to play a match on Friday afternoon against a second division team, FC Vent d’Etoudi. But the meeting against this formation from a district of the capital Yaoundé has been canceled, according to information from the correspondent of Parisian-Today in France which follows the arrival of the PSG striker.

Reason for this reversal? Concerns for the safety of the Blues player in the stadium where the match was scheduled. Kylian Mbappé’s entourage has vetoed it after having already been scalded by the reception of the star the day before at Yaoundé-Nsimalen international airport. About 2,000 people went there to welcome the 2018 world champion and in the eyes of those close to the player, the police had shown their limits in crowd management.

The basketball game with Joakim Noah maintained

What therefore calls into question the prospect of playing this meeting in a stadium where thousands of people would have taken place to watch him evolve against the club of which the former tennis player Yannick Noah is the honorary president. This step has therefore been deleted. The basketball match with Joakim Noah was maintained.

Kylian Mbappé, put under pressure by the president of PSG about his future on Wednesday, is in Cameroon until Saturday. He must go to Douala, the economic capital of the country, to go to Djebalé, the village where his father is from. The PSG striker must then fly away at the end of the day.
