'People don't know the real Icardi'

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe claims people have the wrong impression of Mauro Icardi. “He’s giving everything for the shirt.”

Questions were asked of Icardi’s character after he let agent-wife Wanda Nara openly discuss his future, before going on self-imposed exile in response to being stripped of Inter’s captaincy.

The striker has since joined PSG on loan with option to buy, and Mbappe is already a big fan of his new teammate.

“I see him in a very good way,” he said at The Best FIFA Football Awards gala last night.

“People judge him for things off the field, without trying to really get to know the person he is.

“For me, he’s a very interesting lad but also very shy. Mauro tiptoed into the PSG dressing room and is giving everything for the shirt.

“It's up to us to ensure he adapts in the best way. Then, when it happens, he’ll score a lot of goals for us.”
