While Luis Enrique has not shied away from calling out Kylian Mbappe following a few sub-par performances, the Spaniard believes he has a great relationship with the Frenchman. In an interview, the ex-Barcelona boss talked about the duo’s dynamics.

The PSG boss stated, “As always, we have a perfect relationship. We’re not a couple, but almost. Mainly because he’s the one who doesn’t want to (laughs).
