Striker Kylian Mbappé held a press conference on Monday at the Parc des Princes, two days after the extension of his contract with PSG until 2025. After answering questions from journalists, he offered himself a few brief moments with the public, who came in large numbers around the stadium.
An atmosphere of madness for a quick passage. This is how to sum up Kylian Mbappé’s release to the Parisian fans who came to cheer him on after his press conference at the Parc des Princes. The PSG striker announced on Saturday his choice to continue the adventure in Paris until 2025 and answered questions from journalists on Monday in the auditorium located in the basement of the Parisian enclosure.

When he left, between songs and smoke, Kylian Mbappé received a royal welcome, but only gave four short minutes of pleasure, no more. No autographs, no selfies, enough to cause some disappointment. “He didn’t take any photos, he just passed”, “We might have liked him to stop a little longer”, we could hear near the Parc des Princes.
“It’s the first time I’ve seen him so close”
Especially since seeing the star, hidden behind a heavy security device, could be tricky. Despite everything, these few images were enough to delight some supporters. “We are really impressed and frankly, it does something. It’s really heart warming to be here”, spontaneously declares a fan. “It’s the first time I’ve seen him so close,” says another.
An unmissable event therefore for some young PSG fans who even defied the ban to see their favorite player: “I skipped school altogether to come here”, confesses a young supporter. However, there will be no need to leave school to see Kylian Mbappé again since the next PSG match will take place during the summer holidays.
