Zidane and Ronaldo didn´t aim to be ´cinematic´ - Meunier warns Mbappe over attitude

13 Juli 2018 00:34

Thomas Meunier has questioned Kylian Mbappe's "cinematic" attitude following France's World Cup semi-final win over Belgium, warning him that his behaviour is a long way from that of Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo. 

Red Devils defender Meunier missed the clash on Tuesday through suspension as Samuel Umtiti's second-half goal denied Belgium the chance to contest a first World Cup final.

That defeat means Roberto Martinez's side now face England - who they beat 1-0 in the group stages - on Saturday in the play-off to determine third and fourth place in the tournament.

Speaking ahead of that game, Meunier could not contain his frustration at Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Mbappe's time-wasting during the semi-final clash, telling the 19-year-old that he needs to eradicate that side of his game if he is to become an all-time great.

"In Paris, I have rarely seen him waste time the way he did towards the end against us," he told a press conference.

"I am sure he was instructed to do that. Kylian is super talented and a future superstar. I hope that he is not being badly influenced.
