Forward Kylian Mbappe has criticised Paris St Germain after they featured him in a video to promote season ticket sales, without informing him how the interview would be used.

The video released by PSG on Wednesday has snippets from an interview with Mbappe, in which he talks about the club and its supporters. It links to the ticketing section on the club’s website.

“At no moment was I informed of the content of the interview… It looked like a basic interview at a club marketing day.

“I do not agree with the video that was published. This is why I am fighting for individual image rights. PSG is a great club and a great family, but it is certainly not Kylian Saint-Germain.”

A source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters that “exchanges with the Mbappe clan have taken place this afternoon to clear up the misunderstanding”.

Last year, ESPN reported that Mbappe had refused to participate in a team photo and sponsor activities for the France national team.

At the time, the striker said his image rights dispute with the French Football Federation (FFF) was a “collective move” to help fellow team mates, with the FFF saying it would review its agreement on players’ image rights.
