Another important name in world football criticized Kylian Mbappé’s recent attitudes in the Paris Saint-Germain. This time, Wayne Rooney, a former Manchester United and England striker, fired at the Frenchman.
– An almost 24-year-old player bumping into Messi? I’ve never seen a bigger ego than this in my life. Someone needs to remind Mbappé that, at 24, Messi was already on his way to his fourth Ballon d’Or – declared Wayne Rooney.
The collision cited by the former player, now coach of DC United (USA), happened in the game of PSG against Montpellier. In a video that circulates on social media, it is possible to see Mbappé bumping lightly with Messi, causing more criticism to be made against shirt 7.
