Mauricio Pochettino played down an apparent disagreement between Kylian Mbappé and Neymar during the 2-0 home victory over Montpellier on Saturday. After being substituted late on, Mbappé reportedly complained that Neymar does not always pass to him.
“These things happen,” Pochettino said. “There are always things between top players – they are competitors who want to win and help the team achieve good. I have spoken to them today individually and they may have also spoken to each other and there have been photos of them enjoying themselves in training. The target is to win. If there is a small incident sometimes, that can create a wave but it is actually just talk.”
