After the controversy that shakes Paris Saint-Germain following the broadcast of a promotional video for the club concerning the subscription campaign for next season, the Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castéra has reacted. She was understanding and evoked the right to the image in team of France.

"Not the Kylian Saint-Germain": the Frenchman Kylian Mbappé showed Thursday his disagreement with the use of his image for the campaign of resubscription of the season 2023-2024 of Paris Saint-Germain, already stuck in a sporting crisis. Exceptional guest of the program Europe 1 Sport (every evening from 20 hours to 23 hours live on Europe 1), the minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra showed her support to the best scorer in the history of PSG.

Late Thursday afternoon, the video, which was to be intended only for subscribers of the Parc des Princes, was visible on YouTube, where it is displayed as "not listed" and therefore not available in search results. It was made unavailable Thursday afternoon before being available again, without changes. Kylian Mbappé had risen to the niche on social networks a few hours earlier. He blamed the management of the Parisian club for having made a video putting him too high, erasing the rest of the team. Neymar and Lionel Messi do not appear in the clip.

Before France-Greece

And even if this new crisis internally raises several debates, the Minister of Sports has pointed to one in this case: that of the right to the image. In September 2022, the PSG striker had already threatened to boycott a photo shoot in the France team while the convention left the ability to the sponsors of the FFF to use the images of international players which was not to the taste of the main interested. Amélie Oudéa-Castéra was delighted that the Frenchman "is very sensitive to this issue".

"That Kylian Mbappé is sensitive to the problem of image rights at PSG, it's normal. In the France team, this problem must be dealt with before France-Greece" in June, a match counting towards Euro 2024 qualifying. "We know that there are different issues" such as the issue of digital and NFT. For Amélue Oudéa-Castéra, "this framework must be modernized" in a very short term.
