A few hours after Kylian Mbappe's recent statements regarding his abortive departure from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, Jose Fonte, the current LOSC captain, reacted to the words of the French international.

“He's the only one who can say how he feels and why he wants to leave. He obviously has the ambition to play for Real Madrid, which is the case with all the players in the world (...) it is his choice, what he wants to do, if he decides that the best choice for his career is to go to Real Madrid, so… like he said he was trying to get the best possible deal for PSG, I can't blame him for wanting to play for Real Madrid ”, he said on talkSPORT.

Regarding the attitude of the native of Bondy on the ground, the Portuguese central defender admitted some reservations. "I only see him on the pitch, I don't know him personally, but on the pitch, he's not the easiest player to face, he has this self-confidence which, sometimes, for us, can be a little… but I'm sure he's a good guy, a nice boy to his friends and the staff. We are rivals, we are adversaries, we do what we have to do. " Jose Fonte did not want to say too much about Mbappe.
