The player did not choose to take a photo of the club photographers but of the Icon Sport photographer. “During a stoppage in play, I see Mbappé starting to put his hands on his hips. And I understand that he is going to go out, and that he looks upset. But it’s true that with the typography of the jersey, the rain falling, the way of holding the armband… I didn’t choose this composition, but everything lined up perfectly to get this shot! As soon as he posted it, I knew straight away that it was going to get people talking. More than the goal of Vitinha or Ramos. More than victory » said the photographer for what is the last photo of Kylian Mbappé during a Clasico.
