Asked about the mockery he suffered during the celebrations of the Albiceleste players, Kylian Mbappé dismissed the problem with the back of his hand. “Celebrations are not my problem, I don’t waste energy on such futile things, the important thing for me is to give the best of myself for my club, and we will wait until Leo [Messi] come back to keep scoring and winning matches. »

As for a possible icy reunion with the sevenfold Ballon d’Or? The ex-Monegasque does not seem to blame him for not having opposed the bad taste chamberings of his Argentinian teammates, in particular goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. “I chatted with him (Leo Messi) after the game, I congratulated him.
