"I'm not the right person to talk about him": Paredes' dry answer on Mbappé


Asked about his former teammate at PSG, the Argentinian midfielder, on loan to Juventus Turin during the transfer window, preferred to kick in to

After Neymar, it's Leandro Paredes' turn to be tight-lipped when it comes to talking about Kylian Mbappé.

Friday, after Brazil's victory against Ghana (3-0), the Brazilian number 10 preferred to dodge the subject when asked to describe the nature of his relationship with the French striker.

“With Kylian?

Pfff…”, had simply dropped Neymar in the mixed zone, before slipping away.

Also asked about the Parisian number 7, the Argentinian midfielder (28) was not much more expansive on this subject.

At ESPN's microphone, the new Juventus Turin player, on loan with an option to buy during the last transfer window, brushed off the question, suggesting that his relationship with Kylian Mbappé was not the warmest.

"I'm not the right person to talk about him, I can talk about those with whom I had a relationship but I can't talk about the others", explained the international (45 selections), currently with the Albiceleste , who must play a last friendly match against Jamaica, on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday (2 am).

A not so surprising response given the links between Paredes and Neymar, very close in the locker room of the capital club that they shared for almost four seasons.

A “clan” of South Americans with whom Mbappé has distanced himself a little over time.

“It was a difficult decision to change clubs”

The Argentinian international, on the other hand, was a little more open when justifying his departure from the Parisian club for Juventus Turin.

While he admits having had trouble making this decision, Paredes admits that this loan to the Turin team was vital in view of the World Cup in Qatar (November 20 - December 18) which he should play in the skin of a holder with his national team.

“It was a difficult decision to change clubs before the World Cup, because of the adaptation, explains Paredes.

I think I made the right decision, I needed minutes to get to Qatar in the best way, and it was the right thing to do.

Play with Messi?

It was one of the things that was in the balance, being close to Leo to take advantage of him, continuing to associate myself in the best way, but when we compared everything, I decided to leave to look for playing time. ” All these beautiful people will meet on Wednesday November 2 for the last group match of the Champions League with the trip of PSG to the lawn of Juventus Turin.
