Kylian Mbappe appeared to stop running during a Paris Saint-Germain counter attack in Saturday's 5-2 win over Montpellier and fans are furious.


The Ligue 1 champions have started the campaign with two wins out of two under new manager Christophe Galtier, scoring 10 goals.

Mbappe opened his account for the season in the second half but cut a frustrated figure for most of the first.

He had a penalty saved with the scores level at 0-0 and just before halftime, threw a strop when PSG had a glorious chance to go 3-0 ahead.

PSG midfielder Vitinha brought the ball out from the back and had the option of passing to Mbappe on the left or Lionel Messi on the right. Talk about an embarrassment of riches.

Vitinha opted to give the ball to Messi, which saw Mbappe throw his hands in the air and slow down.

The 23-year-old could be seen wandering round as PSG continued to attack.

Achraf Hakimi ended up putting his shot wide, but there was clearly space for a winger to dart into on the opposite flank.

A clip of the incident quickly went viral on social media and supporters are disappointed with Mbappe's attitude.

One person said: "Would have subbed him immediately after this."

Another put: "Grow up and stay humble."

A third tweeted: "Is he the egotistical player everyone pretends Neymar is?"

While someone added: "This is a toxic attitude, not good."

PSG took the lead after an own goal from Falaye Sacko and they then found their groove.

They won another penalty, which was taken by Neymar this time and the Brazil winger made no mistake from the spot.

Neymar grabbed his second of the game just after halftime before Montpellier struck back through Wahbi Khazri.

Mbappe got his goal and Renato Sanches opened his account after a summer transfer from Lille, before Enzo Tchat grabbed a consolation in added time.
