Kylian Mbappe has sparked controversy with his recent behavior at Paris Saint-Germain

Kylian Mbappe

All is not well at Paris Saint-Germain and Christophe Galtier has problems he never anticipated. Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have struggled to get along this season and reports have surfaced of a strained relationship between the stars.

However, Paris Saint-Germain is not new to controversy involving star players, managers, and directors. Thomas Tuchel reportedly left the French Champions in December 2020 after a disagreement with Leonardo. Similarly, Neymar and Edinson Cavani were involved in a controversy relating to Penalty kicks during the reign of Unai Emery.

But the problem this time is bigger than before. Despite convincing Kylian Mbappe to extend his contract, the club finds itself in a difficult situation in relation to the French superstar. The French forward has reportedly asked the club to sell Neymar this summer. The news has angered Neymar which has resulted in a strained relationship between the pair.

Kylian Mbappe was also seen frustrated by Vitinha on the pitch when he chose to pass the ball to Messi over him. The forward came under immense scrutiny for his gestures towards arguably the greatest player of all time.

Old footage of Paris Saint-Germain vs Marseille has surfaced

Amidst all the scrutiny, footage has surfaced from 2019. The footage is relevant because it involves Kylian Mbappe denying a penalty kick to Angel Di Maria. The important point to be noted is that the Argentine was on a hat trick and asked for the penalty kick to complete the hat trick.

Paris Saint-Germain was winning the game against Marseille 3-1 because of goals from Di Maria and Mbappe. However, the Argentine had scored two and was on the hunt for a hat trick. Kylian Mbappe won a penalty with some trickery in the box and the Argentine expressed his desire to take it.

However, the footage shows the French international refused to let Di Maria take the penalty. The Argentine playmaker was not allowed to complete his hat trick. What is even more interesting is that Kylian Mbappe missed the penalty.

It seems that the French superstar has an attitude problem which has been fueled further by the importance afforded to him by the club hierarchy this summer!!
