On Saturday night, Paris Saint-Germain took a loose 3-0 at Nantes and secured first place in the table by winning. Kylian Mbappé scored penalties in the absence of the injured Neymar. You’d think everything was fine. But far from it! The star striker was already complaining at half-time – about referee Hakim Ben El Hadj. And later, there was also the terror of injury.
What happened? What happened? From his point of view, the impartial had refused the Paris attacker a penalty in the second half of the game when he lined up with Dennis Appiah. His dissatisfaction and frustration with this decision allowed Mbappé to run free on his way to the dressing room. „It’s the same every year. They come here and lie to us every time. They have three-hour sessions every
time. You can’t lie to us, ref.“ These were Mbappé’s words on the impartial, documenting „Canal+“. So it went into the break at a score of 0:0. It was only after a restart that PSG started, after Mbappé had been prepared by Ander Herrera (47th), Mbappé himself (65th) after he had been fouled, and Pablo Sarabia (88th).
The 21-year-old can hardly be replaced by PSG, but shortly before the game in the Champions League against RB Leipzig, coach Thomas Tuchel trembles around his striker. Because Mbappé had to leave in the 74th minute because of problems on the right thigh. „With Kylian, it’s not an injury, just fatigue,” Tuchel tried to clear up after the game.
