Mum blasts PSG for Rabiot treatment: He's a prisoner!

The mother of Adrien Rabiot has hit out at PSG over their treatment of the midfielder.

The 23-year-old is set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season, amid interest from the likes of Barcelona, Juventus, Arsenal and Liverpool.

"I do not want to cry about it, or to weaken even more Adrien saying he is not good," Mum Veronique said, in an interview with L'Equipe. "We are attacking the human side here. We are modest. I can only tell you that he feels very badly [about] everything that happens."

And Veronique added: "Adrien is a prisoner! He is even held hostage by PSG. Soon it will be dry bread, water, and a dungeon! This environment is cruel.

"A footballer exists to play, not to stay on the shelf. Adrien has not played since December, and likely won't until June."
