The selection of the France team, Didier Deschamps, wanted to put an end to the controversy around his two attackers Kylian Mbapp and Olivier Giroud. The tricolor technician ensures that there is no tension within his group.
Deschamps prepares the Blues for Tuesday’s match
Everyone knows what happened, I was a little affected but we’re not going to make a big deal out of it. Sunday, Kylian Mbapp (22) spoke at a press conference to clarify the case with Olivier Giroud (34) who hosted the last week of the France team.
Mbapp didn’t like the way
Just after the final whistle of the friendly match against Bulgaria (3-0), last Tuesday, the Chelsea center forward publicly criticized his teammates, including Mbapp, for not serving him enough. A way of doing things little appreciated by the Parisian. He didn’t say anything bad. It’s more about releasing it publicly , explained yesterday the star of PSG, decided to move on from now on. Like its breeder Didier Deschamps.
In a long interview with L’Equipe on Monday, the French technician wanted to definitively close this file, restoring certain truths in passing. DD ensures in particular that he did not oppose a speech by Mbapp at a press conference the day after Giroud’s statement. So, to be clear, I did not object. Paul (Pogba) was about to go and I validated. It’s a nuance, but it’s the reality , the Bayonnais slipped.
No tension, according to Deschamps
As for the possible tensions that this episode could generate internally, Deschamps sweeps them away with the back of his hand. Honestly, internally, I can not speak of tensions because this is not the case, assures the selector of the Blues. And in relation to what can be said on the outside, I am hermetic. And it is very good like that. This little quarrel will therefore not be a stone in the shoes of the French selection during this Euro. And if Mbapp had lost his smile for a day, he is now turned with his teammates towards a common goal: to win the Euro.
Everyone got back in the saddle on Thursday! All are working in the same direction, with the same objective, assures the Habs coach. Afterwards, as in any group, I have known a, there are affinities. It is also a question of generations. The areas of interest are different. We are 24 hours together. They have moments of freedom. Some may be among friends. But on the pitch, they have the same jersey and I know they will all make the effort for the others. And this Tuesday with a clash of face Germany!
