Mbappe opens up on ‘fight’ with Chelsea striker, Giroud

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has finally played down his ‘fight’ with Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, ahead of France’s Euro 2020 opener against Germany on Tuesday.

Recall that Mbappe felt ‘attacked’ and ‘angry’ following Giroud’s comments that he was unhappy with France’s lack of cohesion in attack after France won Bulgaria 3-0 in their final Euro 2020 warm-up game last Tuesday.

Reacting to the development, Mbappe, a fellow country teammate with Giroud, insisted that he was not happy with the 34-year-old’s public criticism.

“I spoke with Olivier Giroud. Everyone knows what happened. It is true that I was a little affected by it,” Mbappe said at a press conference on Sunday.

“But we are not going to make a big deal about it because we are here to represent France, that is the most important thing.

“It is more that he said it publicly than the fact that he said it. I saw him in the dressing room and he didn’t say anything to me.”

Mbappe added: “He expressed a feeling that I have had 365 times during a match.”
