According to the source, Mbappe raised his voice in an ugly way at the American, so Alba interfered, saying to the French striker: “Be smarter. He asked for your forgiveness.” Mbappe replied: “On the street I will kill you.” “But who are you to kill?” Nevertheless, Mbappe did not stop, taking a step back to approach Alba, saying again: “On the street, I will kill you.”
