Kylian Mbappe has been filmed having a race with freestyler, Ben Black in Qatar. A race which the Frenchman won by simply jogging.
Mbappe was in Qatar for promotional events with his Paris Saint Germain team mates earlier in the month, at that time, Mbappe’s future was still up in the air and expectations were still pointed towards the 23-year-old leaving Paris by moving to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Freestyler, Black teased his followers that he would be having a race with Mbappe, and the footage of the race has now been uploaded.
The footage, uploaded onto Instagram showed Mbappe in his PSG gear, a white t-shirt bearing the PSG badge and the words ‘Qatar Tour 2022’.
Mbappe and Black’s race didn’t last very long, but the winner was unsurprisingly Mbappe, who looked like he didn’t even try, he was jogging and still managed to beat Black.
The result perhaps came as no surprise as one of Mbappe’s weapons on the pitch is his lightning quick pace, a weapon he has used throughout his career to get away from defenders.
Since his trip to Qatar, Mbappe has shocked the football world last week by signing a new contract with PSG, after a last ditch attempt by the French champions to persuade him to stay paid off.
Mbappe was offered a massive signing on fee, huge salary and numerous bonuses, a deal that he simply couldn’t refuse as he snubbed a move to Real Madrid in favour of spending three extra years at the Parc des Princes.
There has been criticism from around the football community since Mbappe announced his decision, with Spanish La Liga complaining to UEFA, labelling the deal between Mbappe and PSG as ‘scandalous’.
Black also got to learn a new skill with Mbappe’s team mate, Neymar. The footage showed Neymar flicking the ball skilfully over the freestyler’s head.
Black has gathered more than 100,000 followers on his Instagram page after posting videos with some of the biggest names in world football, including the likes of Brazilian legend Cafu, Manchester City duo Bernardo Silva and Ruben Dias were also seen showcasing their skill on his social media pages.
