Paris St. Germain has an ego problem: there is said to be an ice age between the two superstars Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
The dispute between the two top strikers escalated over the choice of penalty takers. In the past, this discussion has repeatedly caused explosives. Now it is time again. According to “L’Équipe”, Mbappé was upset that Neymar grabbed the leather in last weekend’s 5-2 win over Montpellier after he himself initially failed with an attempt at Swiss national team goalie Jonas Omlin. Mbappé wanted to compete again, but “wasn’t allowed” anymore. In a later scene, the French world champion waves his hand, visibly annoyed, after he was not played.
The house blessing is now hanging crooked. Neymar added fuel to the fire by liking a tweet from a fan account mocking Mbappé as the first penalty taker.
According to French media reports, the new coach Christophe Galtier and sporting director Luis Campos have to react. Accordingly, they have scheduled a meeting to resolve the differences between the brawlers. There is simply no room for personal pride in the success of the team.
