PSG coach Luis Enrique said on Tuesday that it is a "lie" that Kylian Mbappe insulted him last Sunday when the striker was substituted against Marseille and assured that he is "very happy with his attitude".
"The funny thing is that from a lie everything is generated, that's what happens in the world of football. One has invented an insult and speculation of all kinds has arisen," said the coach, speaking at a press conference on the eve of the French Cup semi-finals against Rennes.
The former Spain coach was referring to alleged insults made against him by Mbappe when he was replaced in the 65th minute by Portugal striker Goncalo Ramos.
The PSG and France star left the pitch with a serious look on his face and uttered a few words that were interpreted by some on social media as insults.
"I would love everything to end well for PSG and wonderfully for Kylian too. We are all in the same boat looking for the port of success," he explained.
"After the matches it's a complicated time, I feel very tired. But I am very happy with all the players, including Kylian. He has a sensational behaviour," added Luis Enrique.
Luis Enrique was also asked about the Champions League tie against Barcelona. While the 'Cules' have a rest this week due to the Copa del Rey final, the Parisians will have to play two more games.
"Barca will have 10 days rest and we will have competitive matches. In my situation I say that the best thing is to play these two games. If I had 10 days rest, I would have said the same thing, I adapt to the situation," said the Spanish coach.
