France’s Mbappe set to donate World Cup earnings to charity
French player, Kylian Mbappe has revealed, he intends to donate his earnings from playing for France in the 2018 World Cup to charity.
19-year-old Mbappe wants to donate his entire international match fees to charity, because he feels he should not be paid to represent his country, reports Mirror UK.
That amounts to £17,000-per-game ($22,455) (plus bonuses on top) and according to French daily L’Equipe , Mbappe is giving away the lot.
Mbappe is a patron of the Preiers de Cordees association, a charity which helps organise sports activities for children with disabilities.
It is understood he will be in line for a bumper bonus of £265,000 if France win the World Cup this summer.
And he has helped them well on their way to completing that goal – bagging two in the last-16 clash with Argentina.
