Kylian Mbappé spoke candidly about a situation he experienced with Lionel Messi, revealing the nature of his relationship with the captain of the Argentine National Team after having played together at PSG.

After the end of the World Cup in Qatar, which resulted in the Argentine national team’s victory over the team led by Mbappé, the relationship between the two players began to appear tense in the eyes of spectators and football fans worldwide, leading many to speculate about the real chemistry between the two competitors, who until that point had been teammates at PSG.

Thus, in an interview conducted with the French forward after the victory of the team coached by Luis Enrique against Olympique, their biggest rival, the footballer mentioned his favorite goal of all the matches against Marseille and made a comment about Messi that left many speechless.

What was Mbappé’s favorite goal against Marseille and what did he say about Lionel Messi?

In the interview, Kylian Mbappé stated that his favorite PSG goal against Olympique of all time was one of the current ones: “My favorite goal against Marseille?” asked the 2018 World Cup champion, then proceeded to share his chosen play.

He said that for him, it was from the match on February 26, 2023, a thrashing by PSG over Marseille as the visiting team. In that match, Mbappé scored twice and Messi scored the other, assisting his French teammate. “The last one. The sequence is also beautiful: there’s a one-two, a volley,” Mbappé stated.

In response to the interviewers’ simple question about his favorite moment against their rival, the footballer reminisced about the old times at PSG and added more details about the goal, speaking frankly about his former teammate, Lionel Messi, with whom there seemed to be a tense relationship marked by competitiveness and clashes.

“It’s Messi who gives you the ball, perhaps the best player in history. We won 3-0, obviously a great memory,” he said about the Rosario native, revealing that their relationship wasn’t so bad and maintaining that there was good chemistry between them.

Thus, it is not the first time a player has spoken about Lionel Messi’s camaraderie within the football world, as Luis Suárez and Mexican Rafael Márquez had previously shared their perspectives.
