Mbappe reveals talks with Griezmann after Atletico star quits national team

         The French coach spoke to the pair on Monday evening, March 20, before appointing Hugo Lloris’ successor and ahead of the first Euro 2024 qualifying match against the Netherlands . I spoke to Antoine because he was frustrated. “It was a reaction I could understand. I told him if I were he would have reacted the same way. He is 32 years old. He is one of the best players of Didi’s era . “Jer Deschamps”

         “I told him that I was not better than him. He has experience in the French national team that I don’t have. Which everyone in the group gives importance to We need him and he is the joy of life. We will join hands, him and me, to try and make this French team the best in the world. If he has something to say in front of the group I’ll sit down and listen. Everyone is free to express themselves in this group.”

Mbappe agreed to pay a €10,000 fine instead of talking to the media in Qatar until after receiving his third Man of the Match award for his last-16 victory over Poland. The Paris-born star has risen to power after signing a new contract with PSG last summer and has become the world’s highest-paid athlete. But says he won’t attend every pre-match press conference like Lloris.

         “I won’t change,” he said. “Everyone is a captain because of their personality. I’ll be another kind of captain. I don’t think the coach would make me captain thinking I would do the same as Hugo. I know my words will cause trouble. People will see me a little more often but I want to leave room for others. Therefore, I must not monopolize the media space.”

         The 2018 World Cup winner added: “Without accountability. Above all is a great pleasure. When the coach asked if he wanted to be captain Your mouth instantly said yes. I never thought about it ′′ He wanted me to unite the team and lead the team. And I can be a link between the old players and the new generation. Lead this team to a championship ′′ Players who have played with me know that the thing that dominates me first is winning. And I don’t win alone But I want to win with the team.

         Deschamps, who captained the world-winning France 98 team, said: “I have no advice for him. Kylian knows what he has to do. Was also named in the first team for the first time together
