PSG: "There is no problem with Kylian", Lionel Messi talks about his relationship with Mbappé since his return from the World Cup


In an interview with the Argentinian daily Olé, the new Argentinian world champion and six-time Ballon d'Or sweeps over several subjects without language.

At 35, Lionel Messi is a happy man.

Normal, he has finally come to realize his dream: to win the World Cup, the only trophy he still lacked.

This Thursday, questioned by the Argentine media Olé, the number 30 of PSG returned at length to its news by developing several subjects.

On his relationship with Kylian Mbappé.

La Pulga showed itself unequivocally: there is no problem with the French star.

Upon his return from the World Cup, Messi had no trouble chatting with the Blues star.

"Yeah, we talked about the game, the festivities, how people experienced it in Argentina when I was on vacation, and the festivities we had.

And nothing, nothing more, but it's going well, really well.

Like Mbappé, Lionel Messi lost a World Cup final (in 2014 against Germany) and he knows very well how the French striker felt.

“I was on the other side too, I lost a world final too and I didn't want to know anything about it, about what happened.

And nothing related to the World Cup at that time.

That's why I don't want to talk about it either.

But the truth is that there is no problem with Kylian, quite the contrary.


"I'm going to be 36, I'm going to see where my career goes"

In the rest of the interview, Messi talks about the behavior of the Argentines, which has caused controversy, especially after the insults towards Mbappé.

For him, his teammates have nothing to be ashamed of and he insists above all on the attitude of the Dutch, their opponents in the quarter-finals.

“It seems unfair to me that the Argentines' lack of fair play was mentioned because it is not true.

We are always behaved in an exemplary manner, on and off the pitch.

My teammates were impressive.

And I think they talk because of what happened with the Netherlands, that it all starts there.

It was the Dutch who spoke and who wanted to destabilize our players when we were going to take the penalties.

Everyone talks about what Argentina did after their victory but no one talks about it.

Seems to me we should watch the movie carefully and see what happened and then comment and establish that we didn't know how to win.


Finally, Lionel Messi mentioned his international retirement, which is not relevant for him.

“I don't know, I've always said that because of my age it seems to me that it's very difficult to get there.

I love playing football, I love what I do and as long as I am good and feel fit and continue to enjoy it, I will do it.

But that seems like a lot until the next World Cup.


For the next deadlines, Argentina plays the Copa America in 2024 in the United States then the World Cup two years later in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

He will then be 39 years old.

“I don't anticipate anything either.

But that's what I repeat and I will repeat.

Due to age and time, it seems to me that it is difficult.

But it depends on the evolution of my career.

I'm going to be 36, I'm going to see where my career goes, what I'm going to do and it depends on a lot of things.
