France stars Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud at daggers drawn just days before the first Euro 2020 clash against Germany – –


KYLIAN MBAPPE has reportedly rejected Olivier Giroud’s apologies as rumors of a breakup in the French camp rumble.
This was first triggered after the Chelsea forward appeared to punch his superstar teammate for not picking his runs after a win over Bulgaria.

Giroud, 34, scored twice in the last 10 minutes of the game but remained critical of his side’s ability to create chances.

According to RMC, star Mbappe was furious at the comments and felt pointed at by the veteran striker.

The report adds how the leader of Paris Saint-Germain demanded he hold a press conference to share his side of the story, but was turned down by boss Didier Deschamps.

And it is claimed that when Giroud then went to apologize for his words on the training ground, Mbappe gave him shivers.

After the 3-0 victory over Bulgaria, Giroud told L’Equipe du Soir: “I was a little quiet because sometimes I go shopping and the balls don’t come.

“I’m not saying that I always do the best runs, but I’m looking to offer solutions in the box. “

Boss Deschamps, all too aware of how discord in the team hampered the French campaigns of yesteryear, tried to defuse the situation.

He said: “If you got the ball after every time you called it, it’s always the same, the striker says: ‘I’m shopping but it’s in the middle of the field’.

“Midfielders will say it’s about forwards.

“Sometimes the pass doesn’t come, sometimes it’s at the bottom of the swing. But that’s not a stigma of Kylian or anyone else.

“Kylian, I spoke to him at halftime. He knows it very well, Olivier does not have the same profile as Karim. “

And midfielder Paul Pogba also attempted to pour cold water over the flames ahead of their first clash with Germany on Tuesday.

When asked if there were any tensions in the camp, he replied to reporters, “No.”

“The only tension here is muscle, legs and joints!

“Honestly, I’m inside [the camp] and there is a good atmosphere. If you are referring to Giroud and Mbappé, there is nothing, but I am not a police officer.

“The comments were taken out of context. Mbappe is a generous player who plays for the team, but sometimes I tell him to help the midfielder a bit more. I don’t feel the tension we’re talking about outside. “
