Kylian Mbappe, the captain of the France national football team, has stated that “violence must stop” in the midst of the unrest that has gripped the country in the wake of the shooting death of a teenager by police.

Since Nahel M., 17, was shot and murdered on Tuesday while fleeing from a traffic stop in France, the country has been experiencing nights of turmoil.

Mbappe wrote on his Instagram story that “Violence solves nothing, especially when it inevitably turns against those who are expressing it.” Mbappe was referring to the fact that violent acts invariably turn against the perpetrators.

The administration made the announcement that it will send 45,000 additional police officers into the field in an effort to prevent further acts of violence.

Shops have been looted all the way from Lille and Roubaix in the north to Marseille in the south, and streets and roads have been severely destroyed. Cars have also been set ablaze.

Mbappe, a forward for Paris St. Germain, led France to victory at the 2018 World Cup, and France manager Didier Deschamps gave him the captaincy of the national team in March.

According to his statement, he was speaking on behalf of the French squad when he added the following: “Like all French people, we were marked and shocked by the death of young Nahel.”

Mbappe stated that the France players share “feelings of sadness and pain” and that many of them hail from working-class neighborhoods like Nahel.

Mbappé spent his childhood in Bondy, which is located in the north-eastern suburbs of Paris.

He said that the players “could not remain silent” as they issued a demand for the “time of violence to give way to that of mourning, dialogue, and reconstruction.”

In the meantime, the organizers of the Tour de France have stated that they are ready to adjust to any situation that may arise as a result of the disturbance in the country.

On Saturday, the Tour de France will get underway in Bilbao, Spain, and then move into France on Monday.

Christian Prudhomme, who is in charge of organizing the race, said that they are “in constant liaison with the state services” and that they are “following the situation and how it has been evolving.” We are prepared to make adjustments in response to whatever transpires.
