France superstar Kylian Mbappe believes Olivier Giroud should have expressed his disappointment directly to him instead of going to the media.
As widely reported, Mbappe took issue when Giroud suggested to the media that he does not always get passes from the attacking midfielder as the striker.
"I spoke with Olivier Giroud. Everyone knows what happened," Mbappe said at a press conference, as per Goal.
"It is true that I was a little affected by it. But we are not going to make a big deal about it because we are here to represent France, that is the most important thing.
"What he said didn't bother me more than that, I'm a striker and I've had this feeling 365 times in a game.
"I congratulated him in the locker room, he didn't say anything to me and then I heard from the press. He didn't say anything bad. It's more the fact of talking about it publicly, I would have preferred to let him come and be even more vocal in the locker room.
"But that's not a problem, these are small trifles. The team does not need us to get in the way," the Frenchman concluded.
