According to reports, Kylian Mbappe is nervous with Olivier Giroud, after the comments of the latter, who complained that he was not receiving passes from his teammates in France. The "Turkeys" sealed a clear victory in the figures 3-0 against Bulgaria, in the last preparatory match before the start of the European Championship. But after the match, Giroud admitted to the media that he was not happy with the team's cohesion in attack.
The striker came on as a substitute in the match, and then managed to score two goals. However he told L'Equipe du Soir:
"I was a little calm, because sometimes I run on the attack, but the balls do not come. I am not saying that I have the best runs, but I am ready to offer solutions when I am inside the area. "
But, according to the prestigious L'Equipe, Kylian Mbappe has felt "attacked" and "angry" by Giroud's comments. The Paris Saint-Germain striker wanted to give a statement to the media, in order to clarify the situation in the French camp. However, at the last moment it was coach Didier Deschamps who intervened to clarify the situation. According to him, Giroud's comments were not directed at Mbappe. French bench number 1 gave his explanation for the episode:
"The situation is always the same, the striker means that the midfielder has the problem, while the midfielder means that the attack is to blame. Sometimes the passes do not come, sometimes they are slow. But Kylian and no one else is to blame for this. "
Deschamps also added:
"I spoke with Kylian during the break between parts. He knows full well that Olivier does not have the same profile as Karim (Benzema). Players make their choices during the game, and they do not always have to be interpreted. If they take individual action, rather than succeed, the decision rests with them. "Especially when the game does not impose such a thing on them."
Recall that France will face Germany, in their first match in Euro 2020.
