Mbappe’s Mother Confirms Neymar And Dani Alves Treat Mbappe Badly at PSG
Kylian Mbappe’s mother has said Neymar and Dani Alves have been teasing her son in the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room, according to reports.
El Pais claims mum Fayza – a former handball player in France – feels uncomfortable at the way the teen striker is persistently compared to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Donatello.
Alves posted a photo of Donatello after Mbappe scored twice in France’s 4-3 win over Argentina in the last-16.
Thiago Silva gave the forward, 19, a mask of the character as an early Christmas present in November – and fans dressed up as the turtle during a pitch invasion the following month.
A supposed behind-the-scenes bust-up between Mbappe and Brazil superstar Neymar is also a cause for concern.
It is claimed Mbappe feels the joke has gone too far and is fed up of being laughed at.
Neymar and Co are said to have shown Mbappe – now a World Cup finalist – little respect since his loan move from Monaco, which can become permanent for £166million.
According to the report, Mbappe blew his top with Neymar in the dressing room when he felt he deliberately did not pass to him during February’s 1-0 win at Toulouse.
The pair apparently had to be separated by team-mates and have hardly spoken since.
PSG chiefs were hoping for a France versus Brazil final, showcasing their two star players to the world.
