At a press conference on Friday, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane replied to Leonardo (PSG) about his statements on the future of Kylian Mbappé.
Zidane said that Mbappé had always said “dreaming of playing for Real Madrid”. This statement from the Real coach “annoyed” Leonardo, the PSG team manager, who put the French coach in his shoes: “This is not the time to talk about a player on our team all the time during the season, and this is not the first time. I think it’s time to stop,” Leonardo replied.
When asked again about this, Zidane did not want to add any more oil to the fire. He simply confirmed his comments: “I simply said that the player said it himself, and that he wanted to wear Real’s jersey one day. I say it again today and I will always say it. I have no comments to make on his reaction. He says what he wants, he has the right to answer questions as he wishes,” Zizou replied at a press conference on Friday.
