Kylian Mbappe confirms he has sorted it out with ‘disappointed’ team-mate Antoine Griezmann regarding France captain

Kylian Mbappe has ensured that he has cleared the air with team-mate Antoine Griezmann after being selected captain of the France National team. The star Paris Saint Germain forward said that Griezmann, one of the seniormost players in the French side with 117 caps for all Les Bleus, was ‘disappointed’ but that this was understandable.

Kylian Mbappe ensures clearing the sir with Antoine Griezmann

Speaking against France’s opening European Championship qualifying game against the Netherlands on Friday, the 24-year-old French star spoke honest words about his conversation with the Atletico Madrid star.

Kylian Mbappe said, 

“I spoke with Antoine because he was disappointed. It’s a reaction I can understand. I told him that in his place, I might have had the same reaction. He is 32 years old; he is one of the best, if not the best, of the Didier Deschamps era.”

Griezmann was appointed vice-captain alongside the Qatar World Cup golden boot winner, and Mbappe was adamant that there was no hierarchy in practice. Kylian Mbappe further added, 

“What I told him was that as long as I am captain and he is vice captain, I won’t be superior to him. He has experience playing for France that I don’t have. He is held in high esteem and is liked by the whole squad, so it would be a shame for us not to benefit from his experience and his joie de vivre.”

What else did the new captain add?

The 24-year-old star also added that both of them will go hand in hand with the sole aim of making the French football team conquer world football. He even added that everyone in the group is free to express themselves, and if Griezmann is saying something, he’ll sit and do it.
