Oops! This Is What Arsene Wenger Told Kylian Mbappe After He Rejected To Join Arsenal

French and PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has revealed that former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was a gentleman after he rejected a move to the Gunners, insisting he wished him luck with his new club.The 19-year-old met with the former manager of the north Londoners to discuss a possible transfer from AS Monaco before his eventual switch to PSG last year. Mbappe opted to remain in Ligue 1 and managed to win a domestic treble during his first year with the Parisians, scoring 21 goals in all competitions. Looking back on his decision to snub Arsenal, Mbappe has said that Wenger was gracious in accepting his final decision. “He is a real French football monument who has left Arsenal,” he told France Football . “I have not seen many people in this world being viewed in such a unanimous way. When the entirety of Europe gets on its knees in front of him to celebrate him, that certainly means something. A little while ago, before I signed for PSG, we were in contact in 2017. I chose a different direction but he wasn’t annoyed at me. He was a gentleman about it and wished me good luck.”Photo Credit: Getty
