Kylian Mbappe complains that he is often scapegoated in the French national team


The Paris Saint-Germain forward is still unhappy with the treatment he received over the summer after his missed penalty saw France crash out at Euro 2020.

Kylian Mbappe claims the France national team made him feel like a problem after Euro 2020 following his penalty miss, insisting he has always been fully committed to giving his country the best even if for nothing.

Les Bleus who were the main favorites during the European Championships were surprisingly eliminated early in the last 16 after losing on penalties to Switzerland, a very disappointing result given the quality of their squad and their status as world champions.

Well during the defeat, Kylian Mbappe was the last executioner of his country and he was the only executioner who failed during the penalty shootout, when Paul Pogba, Olivier Giroud, Marcus Thuram and Presnel Kimpembe managed to complete their tasks well.

The 22-year-old forward, who has recently been busy with press conferences after receiving France’s call-up for the Nations League this week, gave an exclusive interview published on L’Equipe and he expressed his disappointment during his stint together Les Bleus.

He said, “I have never taken a single euro to play for the French national team and I will always play for my national team for free. Above all, I never wanted to be a problem. But from the moment I felt like that, I started to be a problem and people felt like I was a problem. I received the message that it was my ego that made us lose.”

“The French national team is the most important thing in my career and if the French national team were happier without me, I would have left. I met the president (Noel Le Graet) and we talked about it. I complained to him that I was insulted and called a monkey for missing a penalty.”
