When asked to weigh in on the situation inside the France dressing room, Pogba said that Giroud’s ‘comments have been taken out of context’.
“No. The only tension here is muscular, legs and joints! Honestly, I’m inside [the camp] and there’s a good atmosphere. If you’re referring to Giroud and Mbappe then there’s nothing, but I’m not a police officer.
“The comments have been taken out of context. Mbappe is a generous player who plays for the team, but sometimes I tell him to help the midfield a little more. I don’t feel the tension that is spoken about on the outside,” Pogba said in a press conference.
