Kylian Mbappe sparks controversy with comments on South American football

Kylian Mbappe spoke to TNT Sport Brasil about the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He claimed that Brazil are one of the favorites but they don’t play against high profile opponents regularly. He believes this would be a disadvantage for the South American team in the tournament, including Argentina.

“NA AMÉRICA DO SUL O FUTEBOL NÃO É TÃO AVANÇADO QUANTO NA EUROPE”! 😳🤔 Em EXCLUSIVA para a nossa @isabelapagliari, Mbappé falou sobre a próxima Copa do Mundo e mandou essa aí! 👀 O que Achou, torcedor? #Mbappe https://t.co/1i9bl41jWd

The Frenchman went on to claim that European countries are “readier” for the World Cup. This is due to the UEFA Nations League and the rising quality of football in other countries on the continent. He said (via MSC Football):

“Argentina and Brazil are not playing top games to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Football is not as developed as in Europe and that comes from watching the last World Cup.”

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been in the news this week for too many reasons. He became the talk of the town after stopping Real Madrid from signing a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions last week. Many expected the Frenchman to join Los Blancos after his contract with the Ligue1 side expired this summer.
