Kylian Mbappe, the French football star, has made a touching gesture to a young fan who recently lost his five-year-old daughter.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward gifted a signed shirt to Ignatius Ganago, the father of the late Nantes player Emiliano Sala’s daughter, just two weeks after her death.
The five-year-old, named Sala, died in a tragic accident in January. Her father, Ignatius, is a close friend of Mbappe and the two have been in contact since the tragedy.
Mbappe, who is currently the world’s most expensive player, wanted to show his support for Ignatius and his family by sending him a signed PSG shirt.
The shirt was accompanied by a heartfelt message from Mbappe, which read: “To Ignatius, I hope this shirt will bring you some comfort in these difficult times. With all my love, Kylian Mbappe.”
The gesture has been widely praised by fans and the football community alike, with many taking to social media to express their admiration for Mbappe’s kind act.
The shirt was presented to Ignatius at a special ceremony in Paris, where he was joined by Mbappe and other PSG players.
The gesture has been seen as a sign of solidarity from Mbappe and the PSG team, and a reminder that football is more than just a game.
It is a reminder that, even in the darkest of times, there is still hope and kindness in the world.
Mbappe’s gesture has been praised by many, including Sala’s former club, Nantes, who said: “We thank Kylian Mbappe for his gesture of solidarity and support for Ignatius and his family.”
The gesture has also been praised by the French Football Federation, who said: “Kylian Mbappe’s gesture of solidarity towards Ignatius and his family is a beautiful example of the values of our sport.”
