Kylian Mbappe insists he has no problem with France team-mate Olivier Giroud despite their rumoured bust-up over the summer.
Reports suggested Mbappe and Giroud were embroiled in a private feud before Euro 2020 got underway back in June, which began when the latter appeared to criticise his fellow Les Bleus attacker for not passing him the ball.
After a 3-0 friendly win over Bulgaria, Giroud said: “I was a little quiet because, sometimes, I make runs and the balls aren’t forthcoming.
”I am not saying that I always make the best runs but I am seeking to offer solutions in the box.”
Those comments did not go down well with Mbappe, who has revealed he had it out with the former Chelsea striker, who has been left out of Didier Deschamps' last two France squads, before quickly squashing their beef.
“It dragged on,” the Paris St-Germain star told L’Equipe.

“Because people dragged it on. I am going to tell you the truth: that night, I was enraged, but two days later, I was not thinking about it anymore.

"It certainly dragged on in terms of the media, people, there was always this shadow over the head of the team, but it was not a problem for us.
