Kylian Mbappe to Donate World Cup Salary to Children’s Charity

Kylian Mbappe has decided to donate his earnings from France’s 2018 FIFA World Cup championship to charity.

According to L’Equipe (h/t Jack White of USA Today), the Paris Saint-Germain star, who scored as France beat Croatia 4-2 in Sunday’s final in Russia, decided to give the money to Premiers de Cordee, a charity that offers sporting instruction to children who are hospitalised or have disabilities.

Per L’Equipe (h/t Sports Illustrated), Mbappe, 19, will have earned around £17,000 per game in Russia, as well as a £265,000 bonus for winning the tournament.

As a result, his donation to Premiers de Cordee should amount to just under £400,000.

The organisation’s GM , Sebastien Ruffin, was full of great words for the  superstar, per Le Parisien (via White):

“Kylian, he’s a great person. When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for 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.”

Mpabbe became a huge superstar from the World Cup in Russia, and in the final game scored a goal becoming only one of 2 teenagers ever to score a goal in a World Cup Final Game ( Joining Pele of Brazil).

He also won the Best Young Player Award after scoring four goals in seven appearances—only Golden Boot winner Harry Kane scored more.
