Paul Pogba speaks on on Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe’s France ‘spat’.

Paul Pogba has played down the anxiety in the camp amid a presumed row between Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe.

There have been rumors that the two forwards have provoked one another ahead of the European Championships.

France are one of the favorites to triumph the tournament, following up their World Cup victory in 2018.

In a warm-up match against Bulgaria on Tuesday, Les Bleus won 3-0 – symbolizing that all is well.

Giroud scored twice late on as he looks to break his national record as all-time highest goalscorer – which currently is held by Thierry Henry on 51 while the Chelsea star is on 46.

But the forward was less than fascinated with his teammates for what he understood was a lack of service.

“I was a little quiet because, sometimes, I make runs and the balls aren’t forthcoming. I am not saying that I always make the best runs but I am seeking to offer solutions in the box,” Giroud told L’Equipe du Soir.


According to releases in France, that left Mbappe furious and he had to be talked out of giving a press conference over the matter.

However, Pogba has maintained that the situation has been blown out of proportion.

He said: “No, the only tension is on the back and legs!

“There is always a great atmosphere with everyone. Between Olivier and Kylian, there is nothing.

“Or at least there has been nothing in front of me. Maybe what was said was conveyed incorrectly.”

France kick off their Euros against fellow heavyweights Germany next week but arrangements could be clouded by the events against Bulgaria.

There are certain echoes of 2010 when France pushed the self-destruct button at the South Africa World Cup.

Florent Malouda had to be held by Patrice Evra after squaring up to then-manager Raymond Domenech after a training ground conflict.

With France inclined as one of the favorites, current boss Didier Deschamps will be awaiting for less diversions.
