Details about Relationship Between Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe Revealed by Ander Herrera
June 11, 2023
The relationship between Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe was always a topic of debate on social media. Many wondered what their day-to-day life was like in PSG, and if their egos had harmed coexistence.
But Ander Herrera, a Spanish footballer and Messi’s teammate at PSG in the 2021-22 campaign, gave the details of what was happening in the locker room of the Parisian team. He assured that Messi had a special aura and that even Mbappe respected him despite being the cornerstone of the project.
“If you have Leo, everyone else is one step behind. Leo does not need to speak to be respected. How am I going to raise my voice if Leo doesn’t?” Ander said in a dialogue with TyC Sports.
In addition, he clarified that there was never any problem between the two stars: “It is a lie that there was a division with Mbappe. I do not understand why for praising one, you have to kill the other.
Following the line of flattery, the Basque remembered how Messi behaved in training. “He is a born winner, he never took a joke exercise. He always tried to be the best, he takes things seriously. Things don’t happen by chance, apart from the talent he has and being touched with the wand. Without that character that he has, seven Ballon d’Ors cannot be won,” he pointed out.
To close, Herrera had no doubts about who is the best player of all time: “As a teammate, Messi exceeded my expectations. I admired him a lot as a footballer, and then as a teammate and as a person I admire him even more. He never had a bad gesture with anyone. I had the opportunity to have a relationship with him, to go to dinner with Fide (Di María) and Leo Paredes and the families. It gives you the feeling that they are flat, normal people, and it is the best in all of history”.
