Kylain Mbappe vows he has never interfered in Paris Saint-Germain recruitment process since joining the club
Kylian Mbappe has hit out at club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi after claims that the France international has urged the club to bring in some players amid continued speculations over his future.
The France forward future in Paris hangs in the air as he enters into the final year of his contract and no deal has yet been agreed between the 22-year-old and the Ligue-1 giant.
Mbappe had previously admitted he is unsure of his future, a claim that was rubbished by club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who said the forward has no say in the recruitment process at the club.
And ahead of France opener against Germany in the European Championship, Mbappe has fired back at the president, saying he has never asked PSG to sign a single player during his time at the club.
“I’m not interested, I’m here to represent France, the most important is the France team, I don’t want to disrupt the group,” Mbappe initially told his pre-match press conference, before conceding on the matter of his president’s phrasing.
“Al-Khelaifi said I wouldn’t pick the recruits? I’ll just answer that. I never asked the president or [sporting director] Leonardo for a single player.
“I am a simple football player, I have to be content with the field. I have never asked for a single player from PSG.”
The PSG star man is on international duty with the Lens Bleus as they look to conquer Europe after clinching the World Cup three years ago.
