Kylian Mbappe has stopped playing FIFA FUT champs because the game mode started to "affect his mind".
The Paris Saint-Germain sensation has been the FIFA cover star for the last two years and among the highest-rated players on the game.
But it seems as though Mbappe's love for the EA Sports football franchise has waned in recent times and he's now revealed he is in the middle of a FIFA break due to the frustrations the game brings.
When asked by Gotaga on a Twitch stream, Mbappe replied: “I stopped playing FUT Champions because it started affecting my mind."

Mbappe basically admitting to not enjoying playing FIFA Ultimate Team isn't exactly a great look when he's so tied to the game.
The World Cup winner started off as a fresh-faced 17-year-old and was a 71-rated silver in his first appearance on the game in FIFA 17.
He is now 91-rated on the game, where he is also the fastest player with a blistering 96 pace to go along with 91 dribbling and 86 shooting.
One footballer who is still very much loving FIFA is Liverpool star Diogo Jota, who is as gifted with a controller as he is with the ball at his feet.
In April 2020, he was crowned the best FIFA player in the Premier League when he went all the way in the ePremier League invitational tournament - beating future teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold in the final.

When he was out injured, Jota was bashing FIFA and became the No.1 ranked player in the world after going 30-0 on FIFA Ultimate Team Weekend League.
And in November, Portugal international was taking part in an online tournament in the morning but had to leave in the fourth round because he had a game to play in real life against Southampton.
Jota lit up the first half at Anfield with a brace and celebrated FIFA style.
