Wilfried Mbappe, father of PSG star Kylian Mbappe revealed in 2018 that he actually wanted his son to play for the Cameroonian senior team but it never saw the day light.
This was simply because there was “someone” at the Assocition’s office who demanded money first. Wilfried Mbappe said he was surprised because he knew it was not appropriate. So he had no option but leave with his son to France and lo and behold, France charged a zero fee and gave him opportunity.
It was about 4 years ago, and Kylian Mbappe was only 19years old when it happened. He was just starting his career and would have been of great asset for the Cameroon team. But Cameroon lost him to France. While France charged zero, nothing like corruption.
