Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has admitted calling his teammate Neymar a “tramp” during their 2-0 win over Montpellier last month.
Mbappe was caught on camera criticising Neymar after he was substituted and said: “This tramp, he never passes to me.”
Speaking in an interview with L’Equipe, the 22-year-old confirmed he said those words.
He however insisted he has no issue with Neymar.
“Yes, yes, I said it. Now, these are things which happen all the time in football. It just needs to be something that doesn’t linger.
“That’s why, right after, given how it blew up, I spoke to him about it.
“We’ve exchanged a lot of words like that in the past and we’ll continue to do so because we want to win, but there shouldn’t be any hard feelings. There is no resentment at all because I respect the player and the man and I admire what he is,” Mbappe said.
