LIGUE 1 - PSG: Kylian Mbappé, an evening with two controversies
If there is one player that already has a series of matches at Paris Saint-Germain, it is Kylian Mbappé. Played in the first seven matches, in all competitions for the club of the capital, the native of Bondy was again lined up on Wednesday evening at the Saint-Symphorien Stadium, against FC Metz (2-1 victory for PSG, 7th Ligue 1 day).
But this time around, the 2018 world champion wasn't decisive, and it's not for lack of trying. The Parisian number 7 has often been sought by his partners. However, he had a few opportunities (10th, 12th, 22nd), but unfortunately it did not give anything for the Parisians. Faced with the alarm clock in Metz, the French international then had a little more trouble after the break, to finish on a bad note.
Already, in the 84th minute, the former player of AS Monaco surprised everyone by returning the ball strangely to the Garnets, with a "strike" which could have ended in the back of the net if Alexandre Oukidja had not managed a great stop. Quickly, the Metz goalkeeper went to Kylian Mbappé for an explanation, to no avail. But the story did not end there. Because after Achraf Hakimi's goal at the end of added time, the 22-year-old went to see Oukidja, still on the ground after this goal, to say a few words to him.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper then went into a rage and wanted to explain himself with Kylian Mbappé, who was celebrating his teammate's goal. The Frenchman's attitude has therefore not passed with some, especially with Frédéric Antonetti. “Kylian Mbappé, it would be in his interest to behave differently if he wants to be loved. Simply. I love this player, I find him very, very strong, but he would benefit from having a little more humble behavior," said the Metz technician. Between lack of precision in the last gesture and small chambering, the Parisian striker did not therefore illuminate this meeting. At least not on the safe side.
