Zinedine Zidane’s comments about Kylian Mbappe and his alleged desire to one day play for Real Madrid have not gone down well with Paris Saint-Germain.Leonardo, the PSG sporting director, was asked about Zidane’s comments after his side’s 1-0 victory over Club Brugge on Wednesday.
“It’s annoying,” he said of Zidane’s comments.
“This isn’t the time to speak about dreams and all of that.
“It has to stop.
“Mbappe is very important for us and this isn’t the moment to destabilise him.”
Zidane, though, did insist that the player will decide his career path as he made those comments.
“It will be the player who makes the decision on his future,” is how he started his answer about Mbappe in Tuesday’s press conference.
“At the moment he is with PSG.
“In the future, we’ll see, he has always said that his dream was to play at Real Madrid one day.”
