Newcastle United have signed Kylian Mbappe for €134million, won five Premier League titles and a Champions League – on Antoine Griezmann’s Football Manager save, that is…
The French forward shocked Toon fans back in April when he revealed that he chose us as his team to manage the football sim, despite having played for the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
A few months later, a brilliant video has emerged of the World Cup winner taunting teammate and global superstar Mbappe about his virtual success at St James’ Park.
The 22-year-old hilariously responds, saying “Newcastle? It’s cold there!” after Griezmann went through his entire Football Manager trophy cabinet to Barcelona teammate Ousmanne Dembele.
Watch the clip below, showing the £250m trio on a flight ahead of their opening game of EURO 2020 a week tomorrow:
I’ll have you know, Kylian, we have had two weeks of glorious sunshine in the North East if you ever fancy making the switch a reality!
