A weekly pay packet worth £290,000 (₹ 2.7 crore) will be a fortune for the top of the top corporate CEOs. But football world’s second highest paid professional, Kylian Mbappe has revealed that the amount of money involved in football is “truly indecent”.
The French Football star has a £290,000 per week wage contract with his France Ligue 1 club Paris Saint Germain. The teenager, who has already established himself as one of the best players in the world, has confessed “It’s truly indecent for me, who comes from a fairly modest family,” according to a Dailymail report.
The generous teen sesation is renowned for donating his earnings from playing the FIFA World Cup for France to a charity for disabled and hospitalised children.
Despite his impressive charity work, Mbappe still believes that the amount of money he earns now would have been unfathomable for him growing up, and that the money in the game is “indecent”.
“It’s true that it’s indecent but the market is like that. The world of football works like that,” says Mbappe. “I’m not going to revolutionize football. I’m in a system. You have to know how to respect it and to stay in place.”
The 19-year-old star is in the running for being the best player in the world at this young age. He has already won the FIFA World Cup with his country, besides being the key contributor to PSG’s 13-game winning streak in Ligue 1.
