Former France international, Patrice Evra, has backed manager Didier Deschamps’ decision to hand Kylian Mbappe the captain’s armband for France ahead of Antoine Griezmann.
The Manchester United legend claimed that Mbappe is very intelligent, while Griezmann is not a leader despite having 118 caps for Les Bleus.
“He [Mbappe] is chosen, that is how it is and it will not change. Afterwards, Antoine, you say to yourself that it’s the oldest.
“But be careful: I think that Kylian Mbappé is very intelligent,” Evra was quoted by RMC SPORT as saying.
“When Antoine is going to speak… Personally, when I was there, he did not speak. But he is not someone who will make a speech before the game, he is not a unifier, he is not a leader.
“Afterwards, with his experience, you could give him the armband.”Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
