Were people expecting him not to?

People are interested in how him and Mbape interact.

Are they? I haven't heard about any animosity between them. Mbappe won in 2018 and Messi in 2022. I expect that, despite the bitter disappointment for having lost, Mbappe is happy for his teammate to finally get one at the end of his career.

It’s just the media hyping it up

Yeah I think they are able to play each other in football without taking it personally lol

Yeah same as olympics vs pro leagues (NHL is a big one, but NBA and MLS/worldwide soccer too).

This happens every 2 years in soccer (olympics offset from the world cup), and sports media talks about it like it’s a huge deal every time, but every time it is inconsequential and everyone just keeps playing the game.

Nobody cares about the Olympics in football...

Sure, that doesn't mean that you don't have players from the same team competing against each other for a few weeks then going back to being teammates though.

Even if you discount the Olympics, the point still stands that this happens every 4 years with the world cup.

Continental tournaments; Euros etc. are a much better example.

That was my thought. This article is "Player, who's paid millions by Professional Sports Team, shows up to practice, as is expected and required by contract."
