Adrian Rabiot's mother 'clashed with Pogba's family & Mbappe's parents in stands' after France crashed out of Euro 2020
ADRIEN RABIOT'S mother reportedly clashed with the families of Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe after France's dramatic exit from Euro 2020.
The World champions were dumped out of the tournament on Tuesday night by Switzerland, who beat Didier Deschamp's side 5-4 on penalties.
And according to reports in France, there were fiery scenes after Les Bleus' elimination.
French outlet RMC Sport claims Veronique Rabiot was involved in a heated exchange with Pogba and Mbappe's families immediately after the final whistle.
Veronique was said to have initially lost her rag after Switzerland's 90th-minute equaliser, angrily questioning how Pogba lost the ball in the build-up to the goal.
And after the final whistle, she then reportedly took aim at Mbappe's parents – telling the PSG hitman's dad to make him 'less arrogant'.
Veronique, who previously acted his Rabiot's agent, also allegedly slammed Mbappe's attitude to journalists present in the mix-zone.
The families of France's other stars reportedly saw Veronique's reported confrontation with Mbappe and Pogba's loved ones.

And they were said to have been 'shocked' by her post-match actions.
Long-term Real Madrid target Mbappe was left heartbroken after missing the crucial penalty and took to Twitter after the match to apologise for his miss.
The 22-year-old wrote: “It is very difficult to turn the page. I am sorry for this penalty.
"I wanted to help the team but I failed.
"Finding sleep will be difficult, but unfortunately those are the risks of the sport that I love so much.
“I know that you, the fans, are disappointed, but I would still like to thank you for your support and always believing in us.
"The most important thing is to come back even stronger next time.
"Congratulations and good luck to the Swiss.”
Deschamps was quick to shift the blame from Mbappe's shoulders, saying: “Nobody can be annoyed with him.
“When you take the responsibility, it can happen. He is obviously very affected by it.”
France's early exit has heaped huge pressure on Deschamps, who has refused to be drawn on his future amid links to various clubs.
When pressed on his reign, the former Chelsea midfielder said: "That is not the question.
"There is a unity and solidarity in this squad.
"I am responsible, when things go badly, I am with them, they are with me. We will need to time to manage this.
“We did what we needed to in order to go 3-1 up and then we showed weakness, something unusual for us. Losing on penalties is always cruel for a team."
