Someone should remind Mbappé that at 22, Messi had four Ballon d’Ors, Rooney Say

Wayne Rooney, a former Manchester United player, has commented on the reported altercation between teammates Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi at PSG.

It was said that Mbappe, 22, bumped Messi with his shoulder during a recent Ligue 1 match between PSG and Montpellier while pleading with Neymar to let him take a penalty shot.

The French superstar had earlier missed a penalty, but Neymar instead converted his after ignoring Mbappe's demands.

Furthermore, Mbappe stopped racing in a team's counterattack during the same game when teammate Vitinha decided to give the ball to Messi on the opposite wing rather than the former Monaco player.

When asked how he felt about Kylian Mbappé shouldering Lionel Messi, Rooney, 36, responded, "A 22- or 23-year-old athlete throwing a shoulder."
