France international Adrien Rabiot's mother had words with Kylian Mbappe's father in the stands of the National Arena in Bucharest on Monday during Les Bleus' shootout loss to Switzerland, sources told ESPN.
Veronique Rabiot, who is her son Adrien's agent, told Wilfried Mbappe to speak with his son because he was too arrogant and was not playing for the team, according to different sources.
Mbappe's father did not take the criticism well, according to ESPN sources, as things got heated between the two families and voices were raised.
Not long after, Mrs. Rabiot had a similar incident with the family of Paul Pogba. After she shouted at Pogba for losing the ball leading to Switzerland's third goal in the 91st minute of the game, the player's brothers sitting in the stands responded to her by shouting back.
Sources said that the tension was palpable in the stands, with both incidents happening in front of other players' families and France manager Didier Deschamps' relatives, too.
It's not the first time Rabiot's mother and agent has made headlines. In 2019, she accused accused Paris Saint-Germain chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi of "poisoning" the team with his treatment of her son when he'd been marginalised in the Ligue 1 club's squad.
Adrien Rabiot now plays for Serie A side Juventus and was a regular in Deschamps' team that exited the 2020 Euro to Switzerland in the round of 16.
