Well they say it's never too late to fulfill a dream. Less, when you are one of the best footballers in the world and one of the most influential in France.

Tonight I have decided to compensate Mbappé for that disappointment of ten years ago, because he did not give me time to give him the autograph he asked for ”said the former soccer player.
