The Mbappé-Giroud war splashes Benzema

According to 'L'Equipe', the PSG forward did not like Giroud's words after the Bulgaria game and was close to giving a press conference to answer him.


With one day to go before the start of the Eurocup, the French team has experienced a small crisis in the dressing room that could deplete the group during the tournament. According to information from L'Equipe, Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappé have starred in a small scuffle that has been able to go to adults in the last hours.

After scoring a double against Bulgaria on Tuesday, moving within five goals of Henry in the national team's all-time scorers' ranking, Giroud threw several darts at his teammates at a press conference, focusing mainly on the figure of Mbappé. He complained that no one had passed the ball to him during the second half, publicly thanked Pavard and Ben Yedder for their assists (indirect to PSG) and assured that they could have done better (referring to the occasions that Mbappé failed).

The statements of the Chelsea striker did not sit well with Mbappé. In fact, and as reported by L'Equipe, the one from Bondy assured his teammates that he was going to give a press conference today to respond to his partner, but Deschamps stopped him cold and asked him to focus on the debut of the French national team at the European Championship against Germany.

Another reason indicated by L'Equipe in Giroud's possible quarrel with Mbappé is that the PSG star continually looked for Benzema in the first half and, once Giroud entered the field of play, the former Monaco began to make war on your own. At a press conference, Deschamps was asked if Giroud's entry was detrimental to Mbappé, forced to play anchored on the left and not on the inside as he has been doing throughout the last season. The French coach, appealing to his invulnerable disposition, added that the problem was a matter of understanding and that each player has an area of influence on the field. Undoubtedly, the clash between Giroud and Mbappé is one of the first cracks that Deschamps has had in his nine years as coach.
