I am not a Cameroonian, I am a French

The most expensive player today, kylian Mbape has debunked claims that he was denied the opportunity to play for the Cameroonian national team.

Speaking in a Television show on Beinsport the Kylian, who opted for a French nationality in Sports over Cameroon of his father and Algeria of his mother said that reports that he rejected the opportunity to represent Cameroonian national team because the Cameroonian team required some amount of money before allowing him to play for the national team is a total fraud of a story.

He clarified this on the show saying 

"Yes I heard about this trending on social media before, it was a surprise. From my first professional game at Monaco, I don’t think the other federations had enough time to make contacts with me or my family. Not that of Algeria, not that of Cameroon. I got into the France national team so fast"

He is not a Cameroonian but a French because they gave him the opportunity to get onto the centre stage to show his talent. 

Kylian is now playing for PSG, a French team playing in the champions league with recorded win over Bayern Munich and is hopeful to win the champions league for the first time.
