Kylian Mbappe Heard Telling Referee "We Can't Play With This Guy" After Alleged Racist Incident

Kylian Mbappe Heard Telling Referee "We Can't Play With This Guy" After Alleged Racist Incident

Kylian Mbappe was heard saying "we can't play with this guy", just moments before players from Paris Saint-Germain and Istanbul Basaksehir walked off the pitch in solidarity during their Champions League Group H tie.

Tuesday night's clash at the Parc des Princes decended into choas when Istanbul assistant manager Pierre Webo, a former Cameroon international, was shown a red card by the referee before claiming that fourth official Sebastian Coltescu had used a racist term against him.

Istanbul striker Demba Ba then confronted the match official who allegedly made a racist comment and things escalated quickly. During lengthy discussions on the pitch, the likes of Neymar and Mbappe were certainly vocal in their protests, with the latter making his voice heard.

During that time, a number of players took to social media to voice their thoughts on the incident, including Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe, who threw his support behind Istanbul assistant Pierre Webo with a "say no to racism" message on his official Twitter account.
