Kylian Mbappe admits he called Neymar a 'BUM' for not passing to him and reveals Messi hasn't changed desire to quit PSG

KYLIAN MBAPPE has admitted that he called Neymar a 'bum' for not passing to him.

The French forward was picked up on camera looking furious during Paris Saint-Germain's 2-0 win over Montpellier last month.

According to RMC Sport at the time, the striker told Idrissa Gueye: "He [Neymar] does not give me that pass."

And shedding some light on the situation, he admitted to L'Equipe: "Yes, I called Neymar ‘bum’ because I wasn’t happy with a pass.

"These are things which happen all the time in football.

"That’s why, right after, given how it blew up, I spoke to him about it.

"This happens because we want to win. That’s it – no issue."

The PSG duo have been joined by six-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi following the Argentine's blockbuster summer move from Barcelona.


But that hasn't changed Mbappe's desire to leave for Real Madrid.

He said: "I was NOT changing my mind because of Leo Messi's arrival… it’s a privilege, he’s great but I don’t make decisions on sudden impulses.

"I had made my decisions and I had thought long and hard about it."

Mbappe, 22, then continued: "What could make me stay at PSG? We're far from it… since I wanted to leave Paris this summer.

"I'm not going to be the hypocrite, my ambition was clear. We will see what happens – my future is not my priority now

"I am attached to PSG, and if I had left this summer, it would have only been for Real Madrid.

Leaving PSG was the next logical step

"I continued playing in August and I had no problem with that. Why did I want to leave?

"I thought my adventure was over. If I had left, it would only have been to Real Madrid. Leaving PSG was the next logical step."

Mbappe's contract will expire at the end of the season.

But he is insistent that he will not let his situation detract from his performances on the pitch for PSG.

He concluded: "This season you will never see behaviour from me like 'You guys didn’t let me go, I'm going to take it easy'.

"I love football too much and I have too much respect for PSG, and for myself, to ease off even one match."
