Zinedine Zidane recently commented on Mbappe, saying that he’s “in love” with PSG’s striker and made the attempt to sign him very clear.
However, Tuchel is having none of that.
Paris Saint-Germain’s boss dismissed Mbappe to Madrid rumors swiftly in his latest press conference.
“I don’t know how in love Zidane is with Mbappe, but we really love our player,” Tuchel said with intent, as quoted by Fox Sports Asia.
“The most important thing is that he is our player. We are happy to have him with us. When you can’t have things you want, you want it even more.”
The German manager answered in German style, imposing his authority.
Zidane publicly speaking about Mbappe surely isn’t welcomed with a smile in Paris.
However, Tuchel ended the story as the Parisians are preparing for a trip to Madrid in order to face Zidane and Los Blancos.
