Kylian Mbappe and Neymar’s relationship has turned rather sour over the years. The pair were once seemingly tight knit, but that is no longer the case by the looks of things.
The Brazilian was asked about his relationship with Kylian Mbappe following the game against Ghana. He replied in English, saying “I don’t understand”, he then, after the question was cleared up, replied with an “I don’t…”, and proceeded to walk away.
Neymar refuses to comment on relationship with Kylian Mbappe
The winger was rather dismissive of the question, and looked disinterested in replying. This could suggest that there are tensions between the two players, despite the team performing well on the pitch.
Neymar has had a brilliant start to the season, and is currently the top scorer in the French league. His good form is timely, as it would benefit Brazil heading into the 2022 World Cup as well.
In recent years, it has become quite blatantly obvious that PSG value Mbappe much higher than they do Neymar. This was made clear when they offered him a humongous contract to keep him from leaving on a free transfer. Moreover, they also allowed him to have a say in sporting matters which gave him more power than other players in the squad.
All in all, the two players seem to be cooperating for the sake of the team, rather than getting along well.
