After the victory of the Blues against Bulgaria on Tuesday (3-0), Olivier Giroud complained of a lack of balls, despite his double at the end of the game: “Sometimes, we go shopping but the balls do not ‘do not arrive (…) You say that I was not seen much at the beginning but maybe we could have been better. “
A statement that did not please the main target, Kylian Mbappé, who would have wanted to respond to the striker of the Blues in a press conference, before being stopped in his tracks by Didier Deschamps according to information from the Team. Olivier Giroud would then come to explain himself to Clairefontaine on Wednesday. An approach that would not have been enough to completely calm Kylian Mbappé. This was confirmed this Thursday in training despite a desire of his elder to ease tensions.
