Kylian Mbappe He did not have his best night during PSG-Montpellier. The French striker missed a penalty in the first half and, minutes later, paid for his discontent with his teammates. Frustrated at not being one of the protagonists in the team’s victory, the star of the Parisian team left an unusual image of him. In the middle of a counterattack, when he saw the play go to the opposite wing from his, he shrugged and stopped running, forgetting about the play altogether.
It is unusual to see this type of reaction in Mbappe. The player of PSG he had always displayed exemplary behavior both on and off the pitch. However, this season Neymar y Messi they seem determined to overshadow him and he doesn’t seem to be taking it very well. The breakdown of the locker room is more than evident. It is only necessary to see the interactions of the Brazilian in networks, to which is now added the rudeness that the player intended last summer by Real Madrid makes against a compatriot of Ney, Marquinhos.
Mbappé stops running in a play when they see that they don’t pass the ball to him.🥱

The center-back started the attack on PSG, who were already winning 2-0 in first-half stoppage time. Anxious to score, in the first game he played this season, Mbappe he despaired when he saw that, once again, they opted to turn the attack over to Neymar’s wing. The player did not understand that, having solo meters ahead, marquinhos chose not to give him the ball, which provoked his anger on the pitch and led him to stand up, with a gesture of disapproval.
It does not seem that Mbappe be completely at ease in the Parisian ensemble. He decided to stay at PSG in May instead of signing for Real Madrid and Al Khelaifi then gave him full decision-making powers. They would make him a team in which he would be the undisputed leader and his opinion would be more than taken into account to make the team. However, the fact that Messi and, above all, Neymar are eclipsing him at the start of the season does not seem to suit him very well.
