The French national team is the favorite in the European Nations Cup 2020. But a few days before the start of the tournament, the atmosphere in the camp of the world champions does not look good. A feud between co-stars Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud caused a stir at Equipe Tricolor.
The feud began with a 3-0 win in the final Test match against Bulgaria. Olivier Giroud entered in the 41st minute for the patient Karim Benzema and scored a late double (83 and 90). In the post-match interview, the Chelsea striker complained that he felt that some colleagues deliberately did not suit him.
Although the 34-year-old did not mention any players, there are many indications that Giroud was referring to Mbappe. The PSG star is said to have been really angry and wanted to be there at the next press conference to make a statement about Giroud’s comments – L’Equipe reports. Team boss Didier Deschamps prevented it.
Meanwhile, Giroud is said to have had a chat with Mbappe to calm things down, but the project is said to have not been crowned with success.
After Karim Benzema’s return, Giroud retracted the order of the attackers of the French forces, potentially letting Mbappe, Benzema and Antoine Griezmann advance.
