Winners of France in the final of the 2022 World Cup, some Argentinian players made fun of the Blues and Kylian Mbappé. Youssouf Fofana has an explanation.
Since Argentina handed themselves their third star after winning the 2022 World Cup, the behavior of some, starting with Emiliano Martinez, talks a lot. Particularly demonstrative during the celebrations in Buenos Aires, the doorman of theAlbiceleste had a doll with the image of Kylian Mbappé in his hands that day and did not hesitate to chamber the tricolor striker. Several weeks after these easy moments for the Blues, Youssouf Fofana returned to the attitude of the Argentines.
In an interview published in World Eleven, the international midfielder expressed his bitterness about the comments made and the behavior displayed by some of Lionel Messi’s teammates. ” The celebration of the Argentines inevitably leaves me with a bitter taste. Especially since this type of trash-talking is not in football culture. “And if the winners of the World Cup did so, Youssouf Fofana thinks he knows why. ” If they did so much, it’s because they know they didn’t beat just anyone. They knew the strength of their adversary. »
Camavinga also targeted
Despite the annoyance, the AS Monaco player preferred to put it into perspective. ” I’m not going to say it’s part of football, but they did what they wanted to do. They won, they have the right. We’re not going to stop them from celebrating. Everyone has their own way of celebrating. Youssouf Fofana thus showed himself to be a little more philosophical and fluent than the Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, who at the time spoke of the “pitiful” behavior of the Argentines.
For the record, if Emiliano Martinez had insisted on the chambering vis-à-vis Kylian Mbappé, Eduardo Camavinga had not been spared either, this time by the retired Sergio Agüero who had insulted the player a few minutes after the meeting, live on his social networks. So many small incidents that make this final will remain a little more in history. This time not for glorious reasons.
