Kylian Mbappe is easily one of the best attackers on the planet at this moment. But it seems like fans and media are equally interested in his off-the-pitch actions alongside his on-pitch performances. Starting from his private love life people like to talk about his way of talking or even his accent.
Kylian Mbappe is currently having a fantastic season for the French giants PSG. Despite playing alongside the likes of Neymar and Leo Messi the recently turned 24-year-old striker emerges as the star man of the team. Currently, he has 25 goals and 2 assists in 28 all-competition matches for his club.
Mbappe also had a terrific World Cup campaign with the French national team last year December. The 24-year-old already played his second World Cup final but just missed out this time around against a tough Argentinean side 4-2 on penalties. Although he dropped one of the finest ever tournament performances with a hat trick in the final. Mbappe also won the Golden Boot for scoring 8 goals in the tournament.
However, it seems like the PSG star man is a media magnet. It may just have all started from his famous transfer saga with Real Madrid in the summer of 2022. It was almost certain that Mbappe will leave PSG to follow in his idol Cristiano Ronaldo’s footsteps at Real Madrid.
But things changed drastically as Mbappe ended up staying in the French capital with a massive new contract. That particular instance has seemingly made him unpopular among soccer fans.
After that point, he hasn’t been able to catch a break. He made headlines for quite some time last year after he was spotted with transgender model Ines Rau on Cannes beach. The media is still equally interested in Mbappe as he is currently in a secret relationship with Belgian model Rose Bertram.
Twitter reacts hilariously to Kylian Mbappe’s English accent
At the start of the last month, former Arsenal and France soccer legend Thierry Henry took a dig at Mbappe as well. He said that Mbappe cannot win anything without a certain Lionel Messi. Mbappe being an exemplary professional has avoided talking about anything and it has been all one-sided by the media.
Very recently though, a Twitter post went viral. A random account posted a part of Mbappe’s interview. Where starting from the post owner to the accounts commented under the post found the way Mbappe talks, is funny. He said, “I am always very competitive on the field. I always want to think I am the best,” in the interview.
Many fans have commented on his English accent, mostly being shocked about how he sounds like when speaking English. One fan said, “I never imagined him to sound like this”. Many other fans have given their opinions about the clip too.

The above reactions from fans show a glimpse of what comes alongside massive fame. Although most of the stuff was said in a good faith, a lot of people took a dig at him for not speaking French. At the end of the day, a professional like Mbappe will stay unbothered by these things completely.
