Former Paris Saint-Germain defender Dani Alves took out the sulphur against French striker Kylian Mbappé, in response to the technical relationship at Paris Saint-Germain between the 2018 world champion and the Neymar-Lionel Messi duo.
Dani Alves is loose against Kylian Mbappé. Former Paris Saint-Germain player – 73 games and 8 goals between 2017 and 2019 – the Brazilian defender was not kind to the French striker. The 39-year-old right-back, who now wears the Pumas UNAM jersey, did not comment on the extension in the capital of the 2018 world champion, nor on his future and his possible departure in the coming months.
Neymar and Messi “more freaks than him”
In an interview with the Italian newspaper The Gazzetta dello Sport, the ex-Barcelonian rather sent heavy on the behavior of the native of Bondy. According to him, the attitude on the ground of the former Monegasque is not satisfactory. “A great player must always know and understand who he is playing with. Your teammates enrich your qualities. Mbappé is a phenomenon who has still not understood that those who play in attack with him are more phenomena than him. In other words, Kylian Mbappé must, according to Dani Alves, take an example from Neymar and Lionel Messi.

“If Mbappé gave the ball to these two…”
A hardly surprising position, since it should be remembered that the player with 125 caps with Brazil had defended the colors of the Seleçao alongside Neymar and Barça with Lionel Messi. According to the feelings of Dani Alves, Kylian Mbappé sins by excess of individualism. “Neymar and Messi are unique, they see and do things no one else sees or can do. You have to be smart to take advantage of their potential, they are the two geniuses of football. I think I can touch the ball well, but when I was playing with Leo I was giving him the ball. And if I play with Ney, I give him the ball. If Mbappé gave the ball to these two, he would score 150 goals.
