I’m not involved directly or indirectly – Mbappe breaks silence on ‘leaving’ PSG
The forward for Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappe, has refuted rumors that he plans to leave the team in January.
The 24-year-old claimed that the news caught him off guard.
I didn't request to leave in January, I said.
I didn't understand the information that was released the day of the Champions League match against Benfica. After PSG defeated Marseille 1-0 in Ligue 1 on Sunday, Mbappe addressed the media. "I am not involved in this information, neither directly nor indirectly," he said.
It was alleged that Mbappe wanted to leave the Ligue 1 champions as soon as possible because he felt "betrayed" by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
“I was as shocked by this news as everyone else." People may think I’m involved. I’m not at all.
“I was taking a nap, my entourage was at my little brother’s game. We were stunned when we found out.
“Afterwards, we had to deal with it. We had a match to play." I just wanted to say that it’s completely false. I’m very happy here, "Mbappe added.
