Paris Saint-Germain's sporting director Leonardo has slammed the French Football Federation for not telling him that Kylian Mbappe had tested positive for coronavirus.  

The PSG striker has returned home and will not face Croatia on Tuesday night in the Nations League.

Mbappe is also set to miss PSG's fixtures away to Lens on September 10 and at home to Marseille on September 13 according to Telefoot.

But Leonardo said he didn't know this and had to find out via media reports.

'I find it completely unacceptable that we learn from the press that one of our players is positive,' he told RMC.

'They released a statement and sent the player home but no-one from the Federation has communicated this to us. No one has contacted us.' 

'Are we managing? Everyone gives lectures to PSG, that we're poorly managed. But when this happens, it's still PSG that have to manage the problems, despite not knowing about them. PSG are always the bad guys in the story.

'It is a lack of respect to never communicate with the club. We did not speak with anyone. We only spoke with Mbappe. We were the ones who had to put the pressure on. It is unacceptable.'
