Kylian Mbappe mocked FC Barcelona defenders Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique for their ‘behavior’.
Kylian Mbappe was the star man against FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League’s Round of 16 clash. The Frenchman scored an incredible ‘hat-trick’ as his side won the game quite comfortably. Paris Saint-Germain thrashed FC Barcelona by 4-1 at their home.
Mbappe stole the show. But Mbappe was involved in a fiery clash with FC Barcelona defender Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique.
The conversation started when Mbappe told the young Barca defender Sergino Dest to stop touching him at a first-half set-piece. Then Jordi Alba tried to mock the Frenchman by saying, “You’re getting to big for yourself.”
In response Mbappe told Alba in Spanish, “In the streets, I kill you!”
Then Alba told Pique, “He’s learning, the bugger is learning.” In response to that Pique interjects, “But who are you going to kill?” Mbappe then repeated, “On streets I Kill you!”
Many reported about the incident between the Frenchman and the Spanish defender. Pique was mocked later in social media as he pulled back Mbappe’s shirt as the young Frenchman threatened to break away for a counter-attack.
After the match, Mbappe praised his team’s performance. He said, “Tonight, it is magnificent but we have not won anything yet.”
“I am happy. I always want to give the best of myself. I have not always had that success. But never in my life will I hide.”
The second leg of this fixture will be on 10th of March.
