While his 22 French teammates have decided to pay their premiums of the World Cup finals to associations, Ousmane Dembélé would like to make the exception to this rule. The French international has decided to fund rather the construction of a mosque in the hometown of his mother located in the moughataa Diaguily, south of Mauriyanie.
The Muslim community in the hometown of Dembélé’s mother has welcomed this gesture of great heart shown by the French footballer. Dembélé thus expresses his commitment to the outbreak of Islam in his mother’s hometown. As for the players of the French team outside Dembélé, they decided to distribute part of their bonus to the associations. This decision was taken near the victory Sunday of the French team in the final of the 2018 World Cup against Croatia (4-2).
According to the president of the French Football Federation (FFF), Noël Le Graët. Thus, they follow the example of the young Kylian Mbappé, who will pay all of his 400,000 euros to the association Premiers de Cordée, which he has been the sponsor since 2017.
This association was created in 1999. It organizes sports activities for hospitalized or disabled children and awareness-raising operations on the issue of disability.
It was our colleagues from the koora website who informed us of this decision by the Barcelona striker. A few years ago, the Mauritanian Federation had also tried to convince him to join the selection.
