According to PSG manager Christophe Galtier, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar get along well and deny rumors that they have a falling out over last month’s penalty controversy.
Christophe Galtier, the manager of PSG, has downplayed rumors of hostility between Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
A month prior, during the French team’s 5-2 victory over Montpellier, the forwards tangled over a penalty that Neymar converted after Mbappe had earlier missed it.
The Brazilian afterwards liked several tweets that attacked his teammate, but the disagreement is said to have been resolved the same week after discussions with sporting director Luis Campos.
The two appeared to be at odds once more during PSG’s midweek victory over Juventus when Mbappe refused to pass to Neymar, who was in a great position to score. However, Galtier, via Goal and The Mirror, has denied that there is any sort of feud going on between the two.
Christophe Galtier, the PSG manager, has stated that there are no unresolved concerns between his players.
According to reports, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have been at odds for a number of months.
He declared, “I’m not waffleing here; Kylian and Ney’s friendship is good.” “Having spoken with Kylian, who I believe also discussed it with Neymar, they frequently work out together during warm-ups,” the author writes.
The 56-year-old claimed he didn’t see Neymar in space and defended the French forward for not passing to his teammate.
Yes, he continued, “there was the match situation.” That move has two key moments. The first acceleration, where he might be able to pass the ball but it will be challenging, and the second acceleration, where Kylian makes the difference and enters the penalty area without spotting Ney.
Mbappe’s new mega-contract at PSG is said to have caused a number of problems.
“Watching the video makes everything appear easy. However, you only have two seconds to decide, and Kylian is concentrated on the ball.
In the future, he and Neymar will work together, in my opinion. Since the game, I haven’t had any bad feelings about that part of the play.
In the match, Mbappe did have assistance from Neymar, who played a deft ball through for the 23-year-old to volley in and give PSG the lead.
Since Mbappe signed a new mega-contract, which is thought to give him more authority over football-related matters at the club, there has apparently been tension at the French club.
In a 5-2 victory against Montpellier last month, the two argued over who should have taken the second penalty.
However, the player himself also rejected the notion of a dispute before to the Champions League match that week.
This is my sixth year working with Neymar, he remarked. This kind of respectful friendship has always existed between us, albeit occasionally with warmer and colder moments. Because of the way our relationship is,
I am quite impressed with the player that he is. Moments like that happen when two players have such strong personalities, but they are always handled respectfully and in PSG’s best interests.
