In May 2022, Paris Saint-Germain’s forward, Kylian Mbappé, stated that the level of play in Europe was superior to that in South America.
This declaration sparked criticism, and Fluminense midfielder Felipe Melo has not forgotten. On Thursday, he went as far as hurling insults at the French international.

“Mbappé is a fool. He spoke, belittled Argentina, and then they trampled all over him. He scored three goals in the final, Argentina became champions, and Messi was the best in the world. He still has a lot to learn; he can’t talk about South American football.”
“For me, he’s a great player, who will win three or four Ballon d’Ors, but he needs to shut his mouth. They come from Europe to find players here, not in France. Fortunately, I didn’t have the chance to play against him; luckily, I don’t know if it’s for me or for him,” concluded the Brazilian for TNT Sports.
