The revelation came after Luis Enrique sat down for an interview with Amazon Prime Video Sport France. Aside from discussing the team’s progress, the former Barcelona coach was asked to comment on Mbappe’s transfer rumors to Real Madrid, insisting it must have made him and the striker ‘little tired and angry’ from the media’s hype. Interestingly, Enrique succinctly asked the interviewer, “Do you know how many years I have been in the elite of world European football?”
