PSG fans brand Mbappe selfish, disrespectful to Messi
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) fans slammed forward Kylian Mbappe for being selfish and not showing enough respect to his teammate Lionel Messi.
Paris Saint-Germain could only manage a draw as they faced AS Monaco at home in Ligue 1 on August 28.
Kevin Volland gave the visitors the lead in the 20th minute of the game. Neymar Jr. rescued a point for the Parisians with a well-taken penalty in the 70th minute of the game.
However, Mbappe was the subject of criticism from fans for an incident in the game. He opted to shoot from outside the box in one instance rather than choosing to pass to Messi, who was free and could’ve perhaps scored.
Fans were also enraged by Christophe Galtier’s decision to take off Messi in the 87th minute with the team needing a goal.
Many believe the Argentine was having a much better game than Mbappe. They believe the 2018 World Cup winner should have been subbed off instead of the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Fans took to Twitter to share their disappointment at Mbappe and the French manager.
PSG have gotten off to a great start to their Ligue 1 campaign even though they could only draw against Monaco on Sunday. The Parisians have managed 10 points from their first four league games of the season, scoring 18 goals in the process.
Marseille and Lens have also managed the same number of points so far this season. However, Christophe Galtier’s men are ahead in the standings due to their superior goal difference over the rest of the two clubs.
Neymar has been absolutely sensational for Paris Saint-Germain so far this season. The Brazilian has contributed 14 goals from five games this season. Eight goals and six assists in only five games mark a remarkable start to the Brazilian superstar’s campaign.
Lionel Messi, meanwhile, has managed to make a good start to his season as well. In four games, the Argentine maestro has managed to score four goals and provide two assists.
He endured a difficult season last term after arriving from FC Barcelona. He scored 11 goals and provided 15 assists in 34 matches across all competitions.
However, the little magician is looking like his usual former self this season. Whether he can replicate the lofty standards that he set during his time in Spain remains to be seen...TAP.TO.READ MORE.
With their front three firing on all cylinders at the start of the season, PSG fans will hope to have a successful UEFA Champions League campaign this term.
