The message, which has since been deleted and mentioned several players including another absentee, Paul Pogba, made the French striker react. “Are you sure you read the list right bro?” replied Wissam Ben Yedder, citing KFC’s deleted tweet. The sponsor of the French Football Federation then apologized: “Sorry, we were so hoping you were part of it…”
This is not the first time that KFC has been talked about. In September, the vice-president of the chain in France, Alain Béral, had estimated than Kylian Mbappé, in full “youthful crisismade a “caprice” about the position of the Blues striker on image rights in the France team – Kylian Mbappé and other players believe that they must be consulted prior to the commercial operations of the FFF. In a statement, the group said it regretted the words of its vice-president.
