Angel Di Maria, who plays for Italian Serie A Juventus, pointed out the position of French Ligue 1 Par Saint-Germain (PSG) Killian Mbappe in the team. Di Maria raised a question, saying, “PSG gave Mbappe too much authority in a situation where Lionel Messi is in the team.”
According to the British media Daily Mail on the 18th local time, Di Maria claimed this in an interview with ESPN Argentina.스포츠토토 Argentinian Di María has openly expressed affection and support for his national teammate Messi.
According to the media, Di Maria pointed out, “It seems that France is giving Mbappe too much responsibility as a whole,” and “the French people, as well as the president and even PSG.” He also claimed that “the French side grabbed Mbappe when he tried to leave the team, and handed over all power to Mbappe, leaving everyone else aside.”
Di Maria saw that the fact that Mbappe is French also added strength to this situation. Referring to Messi, he analyzed, “Even though the ‘best player in history’ is next to me, I gave all my strength to Mbappe.”
