Paris Saint-Germain Sporting Director, Leonardo, has hit back at Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, after he spoke about Kylian Mbappe’s “dream” to play for the Spanish giants.
Zidane discussed Mbappe’s reported admiration ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Galatasaray, leaving Leonardo unimpressed.
“Honestly, it is a bit irritating.
“I think it is not the time to talk about it.
“First of all, Kylian is a player under contract with us for two and a half more years. Speaking all the time about dreams and will, I think it is time to stop a bit.
“Kylian is very important for us — he is the best young French player, a world champion and one of the best players in the world. This is not the time to knock him and destabilise him. Honestly, it is time for this to stop,” Leonardo told reporters, after PSG’s 1-0 win over Club Brugge.
