Kylian Mbappe makes first visit to father’s native Cameroon


Kylian Mbappe was greeted with an enthusiastic reception as he arrived in Cameroon on Thursday for a special humanitarian visit, marking his first visit to his father’s homeland.

The visit will last several days, during which Mbappe will be staying at a hotel complex owned by the family of former French tennis champion Yannick Noah, who resides in Yaounde.

On Friday, Mbappe’s itinerary includes a visit to a school for deaf and hard-of-hearing youngsters located in the suburbs of the capital city, according to sources.

Additionally, he is expected to participate in a basketball game, with rumours suggesting that retired NBA player Joakim Noah, son of Yannick Noah, may also be involved. Later in the day,

Mbappe is set to compete in a football match against Cameroon’s second-division club, FC Vent d’Etoudi.

Mbappe on Saturday will travel to Douala, the economic capital, to visit a school before heading to Djebale, the village where his father, Wilfried Mbappe, grew up before moving to France to pursue a career as a football coach.

Although Mbappe recently announced that he would not be extending his contract with his current club, which expires next year, he has expressed his desire to remain with the team for one final season.

As a result, the club is likely to consider selling him in the current transfer window to avoid losing him as a free agent when his contract ends.
