By: Manu Tournoux

Kylian Mbappé and Javier Pastore shared the same locker room at Paris Saint-Germain during the 2017-2018 season. The two men liked each other and often had the opportunity to see each other when the former Parisian midfielder found himself in the French capital.

During an interview at the Nation, Javier Pastore mentioned an anecdote concerning Kylian Mbappé about Lionel Messi. At the start of 2023, the capital club traveled to Qatar during its winter tour.

Present on site Pastore said he discussed the World Cup final between France and Argentina with Kylian Mbappé. The former number 27 congratulated the red and blue number 7 for his tournament and his final performance.

But the Parisian did not hear it that way. Indeed, the Frenchman did not hide his disappointment and took the opportunity to gently attack Lionel Messi.

With Kylian, yes. I saw him a few months after the final in Qatar, when PSG went to train and play a match. I was in the locker room, with him, with Messi, with Ney. I congratulated him on the World Cup and he replied: “Noooo, it was that son of a bitch Messi who beat us in the World Cup…” He said it as a joke, as if to say that Leo had won it on his own. »

And to add: “I talked to Kylian a lot, he's a very focused guy: he lost a final and the next day he was already thinking about the next thing he was going to win. He has an incredible mentality. I know him a lot, I have a very good relationship with him and he is a winner, he fights 100%. I am surprised by his seriousness at this age. I have only seen this seriousness in Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. »
