Long keen to slam the door of PSG last summer to join Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappé had a very eventful period with his elimination at the Euro with the France team. And the French striker regrets having mixed everything up a bit…
After missing a sadly decisive penalty in the round of 16 of the Euro last June against Switzerland, Kylian Mbappé hosted the summer transfer window . The PSG forward wanted to join Real Madrid one year from the end of his contract at the Parc des Princes, but he never got the exit voucher he wanted. And in an interview with Prime Video, Mbappé admits having perhaps put too much energy into his desire to join Real Madrid .
“I was not elsewhere, but …”
“The Euro is a wall, when you get eliminated in the round of 16, you miss a decisive penalty, immediately you land questions because it didn't go well. So why did it not go well? After I had my parents, I talked a lot with my mother, my father, they told me, knowing what was going to happen because I knew I wanted to leave, to really focus on the field . I wasn't anywhere else, but maybe I was putting too much energy into something else. My strength was the pitch, and the best answer I could give was being on the pitch, “admits Mbappé .
