Kylian Mbappe Was Seriously Not Happy After Being Substituted Against Montpellier
PSG forward Kylian Mbappe appeared to express his frustrations at manager Thomas Tuchel after being replaced against Montpellier.
The Ligue 1 champions were 5-0 up against the fourth-placed side on Saturday night when a visibly upset Mbappe was brought off for Mauro Icardi in the 69th minute.
Despite the attempts of Tuchel to explain his decision, the World Cup winner was clearly not in the mood, and eventually stormed off to the bench after refusing to take his training jacket.
Images of Mbappe slumping in his chair were shared across social media as the second half drew to a close.

Paris Saint-Germain went on to win the match 5-0 thanks to goals from Pablo Sarabia, Angel Di Maria, Daniel Congre, Layvin Kurzawa and Mbappe but it was the actions of the former AS Monaco striker that grabbed the headlines.
Of course, this isn't the first time Mbappe has expressed his frustrations after being substituted by Tuchel.
He did the same when the German manager replaced him against Montpellier in December.
Tuchel explained the reason behind his behaviour after the full-time whistle.
"Kylian never wants to go out, it's clear. He did not want to against Nantes and still today, very late since there was 3-1 for us, but I decided that and it's forgotten now." he said.
"We must admit that Choupo deserves respect, he deserved to play and that's my decision. He accepts it and it is not much."
