PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe has confirmed that during his recent on-pitch frustrations he verbally lashed out at team-mate Neymar and called his fellow strike partner a ‘tramp.’
In a bombshell interview Mbappe has addressed the ongoing situation with Neymar – after recently being left frustrated that his strike partner was not passing to him on the pitch – along with his future in Paris and also his status with the national team.
The youngster has broken his silence and in atypical fashion has given an explosive interview in which he has outlined that he did want to join Real Madrid this summer while he has also considered taking a break from Didier Deschamps’ France squad.
Speaking to daily publication L’Equipe, the forward confirmed that he shouted out to Neymar and called his team-mate a ‘tramp’ (clochard) following his substitution during a recent match where he vented his frustration on the bench after the Brazilian ace did not pass to him.
Kylian Mbappe revealed what he recently said to Neymar after getting frustrated on the pitch
With French giants PSG suffering some surprise results this season despite being unarguably the strongest side in Ligue 1, Mbappe has on multiple occasions been seen to cut a frustrated figure on the pitch and the tensions have been noted.
The moments of angst have only served to tap further into the narrative that the football sensation wants out of Paris and is desperate to start the next chapter in his career.
Mbappe has been particularly outspoken this week on his footballing future, with speculation now reaching fever pitch regarding his possible signing for Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The forward has admitted that he wanted to leave Paris this summer, only for Real Madrid
The forward will be out of contract next summer and has failed to agree new terms in Paris. Madrid are desperate to get their man, and even saw bids exceeding £150m for the star rejected this summer.
Mbappe has plainly admitted that he did want to leave Paris this summer, but says his future at this very moment is not he sole priority; instead the focus is simply on the football right now.
Mbappe revealed: ‘What could make me stay at PSG? We’re far from it… since I wanted to leave Paris this summer. I’m not going to be the hypocrite, my ambition was clear. We will see what happens – my future is not my priority now
‘I am attached to PSG, and if I had left this summer, it would have only been for Real Madrid.
‘I continued playing in August and I had no problem with that. Why did I want to leave?
‘I thought my adventure was over. If I had left, it would only have been to Real Madrid. Leaving PSG was the next logical step.’
It is not only club football Mbappe has been considering either, with the forward outlining to L’Equipe that he has considered stepping away from the national shirt for a period, due to the criticism he received during the recent Euro 2020 tournament, which was ultimately won by Italy.
He said: ‘The most important thing is the French national team and if the French national team is happier without me, it is like that.
After receiving widespread criticism at Euro 2020 Mbappe said he was ready to step away
‘I received the message, that my ego was what made us lose, that I wanted to take up too much space, and that without me, therefore, we might have won.’
Despite having the exit door blocked in his face by PSG this year however, Mbappe insisted his levels of performance have not dropped as a result, and will not be doing so in the coming months either.
He added: ‘This season you will never see behavior from me like “You guys didn’t let me go, I’m going to take it easy”.
‘I love football too much and I have too much respect for PSG, and for myself, to ease off even one match.’
