“He called me and gave me his version of events. It is his word against his brother’s word. I am going to trust my teammate,” Mbappe said of his fellow 2018 World Cup winner.
“I think it’s in the interests of the national team as well with a big tournament coming up.
“At the moment he already has certain problems and now is not the time to add to those problems.
“We’ll see what happens but I am quite detached from all that.”
