After the Mbappe crisis, the French Federation will review the players' image rights agreement

The French Football Federation has announced that it will review the agreement on the rights of players' images after media reports that striker Kylian Mbappe refused to participate in activities related to a sponsoring company.

ESPN reported that Mbappe refused to participate in the team photo and sponsorship activities scheduled for Tuesday because he did not want to promote some of the brands contracted to sponsor the French team.

"I decided not to participate in the photo session after the French Federation refused to change the photo rights agreement with the players," Mbappe said in a statement published by the network. The FFF wrote on Twitter on Monday that it had held discussions with the executives, the president of the federation, the coach and a marketing director.

"The French Football Federation is committed to reviewing the image rights agreement between itself and its selected players as soon as possible," the statement added.

"The French Federation looks forward to working on the outlines of a new agreement that will allow it to secure its interests, taking into account the legitimate concerns unanimously expressed by the players," he added.

France hosts Austria in the Nations League on Thursday and then plays in Denmark three days later.
