No rift between Neymar and Mbappe – says coach

Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier has insisted that there is no rift between Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

He made this comment following PSG’s Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League.

Neymar was left fuming after Mbappe’s ‘selfish play’.

Eager to complete his hat-trick, Mbapppe opted to go for for a slightly difficult shot against Juventus rather than passing the ball to his team-mate for a simple tap-in.

However, Galtier said he hadn’t noticed any negative reaction since the goal scoring chance.

He also added that the pair had been training together ahead of the Ligue 1 leaders’ game against Brest on Saturday.

“The relationship between ‘Ney’ and Kylian is very good, and I’m not giving you the runaround.”

“They are together in the training exercises, they are often together in the warm-ups. Yes, there was that match situation. And I discussed it yesterday with Kylian, who I think, I think, has discussed it with ‘Ney’.”

“There are two seconds when you have to make a decision, and Kylian is concentrating on striking the ball.”

“I am convinced that Kylian will make more decisive passes to ‘Ney’, as ‘Ney’ is capable of making decisive passes to Kylian. But I haven’t felt anything negative since the game in relation to this chance.”
