“This is another example of the lack of respect for PSG and for Mbappe,” Leonardo addressed
PSG chief Leonardo has hit out at Real Madrid president over signing Kylian Mbappe. The PSG sporting director opened up on a lack of respect from Real Madrid relating to Mbappe.
“This is another example of the lack of respect for PSG and for Mbappe,” Leonardo addressed in an interview with L’Equipe.
PSG chief also stated, “In fact, in the same week a Real Madrid player (Karim Benzema), then the Real Madrid coach (Carlo Ancelotti) and now the president (Florentino Perez) talk about Kylian as if he was already one of their own. I repeat: this is a lack of respect that we cannot tolerate.”
This statement comes after Florentino Perez had intimated that there will soon be an agreement for Real Madrid to sign Mbappe. The Real Madrid president told El Debate, “In January we will have news about Mbappe. We hope that on January 1 everything can be sorted out.”
“My words were misinterpreted. What I said is that we have to wait until next year to find out, always with respect for PSG, with whom we have a good relationship,” Florentino Perez also added.
