Paris Saint-Germain manager, Christophe Galtier, has insisted there is no rift between Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe following the World Cup final.
Messi won his first World Cup title with Argentina after they defeated France 4-2 on penalties following a thrilling 3-3 draw.
The Argentina captain scored twice while Mbappe became the second player in history to score a hat trick in the men’s World Cup final.
Mbappe has already reported back for PSG and is set to feature against Strasbourg on Wednesday. Galtier said Mbappe was “very disappointed” but praised the France forward’s attitude.
“There is no reason to mix everything up in the relationship between Kylian and Leo [Messi],” Galtier said.
“Kylian has a very good attitude having lost the World Cup.
“When you lose a World Cup final, you have a reason to be very, very disappointed. He was very disappointed, but he knew how to go on and behave, and had a lot of class to congratulate Leo and that’s very good for the club and for the team.”
Messi will return to PSG at the beginning of January, Galtier said on Tuesday.
