France midfielder Adrien Rabiot has jokingly revealed what he finds "annoying and stressful" about national teammate Kylian Mbappe. 

The 2022 FIFA World Cup ended in heartbreak for Les Bleus after they were defeated on penalties in the final by Argentina to deny the European giants a second successive world title.

Rabiot and Mbappe were key members of that squad, with the latter providing eight goals and two assists before winning the Golden Boot in Qatar, while the former was also influential in midfield and made two goal contributions in the six games he played.

While the tournament in Qatar might have ended in despair for the pair, the Juventus playmaker seems to have got over their recent failure, making a slight joke about Mbappe when he was asked during a recent online Q&A what irritates him about the Paris Saint-Germain superstar. 

"Kylian annoys me when he changes his voice in interviews," Rabiot told Le Media Carre.

"When we are together, he speaks normally, but when you watch the interview, I don't know why, his voice changes.

"It's annoying and stressful."

Following his good showing at the World Cup, Rabiot has once again been linked with a move to England, having seen talks with Manchester United break down in August.
