Kylian Mbappe Respnds to Naymar
Kylian Mbappe said: “Yes, yes, I said that. Now, these are things that happen all the time in football,” said France striker Mbappe. He also said: “Immediately afterwards, seeing how big it had become, I talked to him about it.” Paris Saint-German later won the Ligue 1 game against Montpellier 2-0 before going on to beat English Premier League top side Manchester City 2-0 in a Champions League group game.
Speaking in an interview Mbappe said: “We’ve exchanged a lot of words like that in the past and we’ll continue to do so because we want to win, but there shouldn’t be any hard feelings.” “There is no resentment at all because I respect the player and the man, and I admire what he is.”
The player who spoke about the hi was not happy with the way the club addressed them recently, saying he feels like a thief with the way the club treated him. Mbappe said: “I’ve been in football long enough now to know that yesterday’s truth is not necessarily today’s, nor tomorrow’s,” he said.
“If I was told that [Lionel] Messi was going to play at PSG, I wouldn’t have believed it, so you never know what’s going to happen.” He concluded by saying right now, his future is his priority as he already wasted a lot of energy this summer, and it was tiring for him.
