Behind the scenes of the conflict between Mbappé and the FFF

If the name of Kylian Mbappe is on everyone’s lips Paris and Madridit is the subject of many reflections and negotiations in French team also. The attacker of PSG has been raised as a true spokesperson for the French players since his refusal to appear at a photo shoot for sponsors of the French Football Federation, at the last rally in March. Since this episode, Noel Le Graetpresident of the FFFgave an interview to the newspaper The Teamduring which he said: If Kylian doesn’t accept the operation, he won’t have any money, that’s all. Players have 30% of what the Fifa“. Because yes, the players of theFrench team and the staff of Didier Deschamps share 30% of the allocation paid by the Fifa or theUEFA depending on the competitions played. This declaration of the number one of French football comes to taint more than what they were, the relations between the FFF and the clan Mbappeso that Delphine Verheydenlawyer for number 7 of the PSGcancels an appointment scheduled with the Federation according to The Parisian.

The Right to the Collective Image Pointed Out

The Collective Image Rights (DIC), allows, in particular, the French Football Federation to use the image of its players collectively, with its business partners. On his side and always according to The Parisianclan Mbappe believes that his image is used for all the campaigns of the sponsors of the FFF. It is in this sense that the attacker of the Paris Saint Germain would like to have a say in the choice of campaigns in which he would participate, according to ” its values ​​and ideals“. More concretely, The Parisian remember, for example, that Kylian Mbappe is not enthusiastic about lending its image to brands promoting junk food or sports betting, as do KFC, Coca Cola or Betclicall commercial partners of the FFF.

A dividend on the flocked jerseys in his name sold

Under Collective Image Rights (DIC), all players of theFrench team receive €25,000 per match played with the jersey of Blues. A sharing which, according to The Parisianis challenged by the clan Mbappe who would like to collect a dividend on each jersey sold in his name. It is in this sense that Delphine Verheydenin its regular exchanges with the FFF, would like to know the volume of tunics sold on behalf of the French international. In a recent interview with our colleagues from The Teamthe lawyer said: If we put the player’s name on the jersey, he should touch something. Everyone is then free to decide if they want to keep this money or benefit football from below.“. This idea of ​​receiving a dividend on the jerseys sold in his name would create an inequality of sharing with the players who sell the fewest jerseys, and put an end to an egalitarian system established for generations. The Parisian reminder that the President Noel Le Graet will not touch this system of distribution ” whatever the laudable intentions of Mbappe towards the amateur world“.

New technologies also in discussions

Football is not immune to technological advances, particularly through NFTs. The latter invite themselves into the world of football thanks to digital cards bearing the effigy of the players, unique and rare pieces sold for large sums of money. For example, recently, it’s a card ofErling Haaland which was sold for nearly 609,000 euros. A system that was born via the French company Sorare. Clan demands Mbappe regarding these new technologies are simple: case-by-case discussions for the brands that would be likely to use the image and name of Kylian Mbappe.
