French football giants, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have strongly denied claims that they used a third party to launch a smear campaign against their star player, Kylian Mbappe.
Newsbreak.ng reports that the never-ending saga involving Mbappe and PSG continues to take more twists and turns.
A report by Mediapart claimed the French champions had used a third party to set up a number of Twitter trolls that would post abusive content aimed at targets such as the club’s star striker. Although, PSG have distanced themselves from those claims.
“PSG strongly deny Mediapart’s allegations,” a club statement read. “PSG is an international brand that works constantly with social media agencies around the world to promote and celebrate the achievements of the Club, its employees and its partners, like all companies. The club has never contracted with an agency to harm anyone.”
Recall that all day on Tuesday, after news broke of his intention to leave PSG, the world of football belonged to Mbappe, which is maybe what he wanted.
The 23-year-old monopolised all the attention, was the focus of all the pre-game talk, all the television shows, all the radio shows, and all the newspaper columns. He was also a major topic on social media.
