Mbappe Refuses To Give Penalty To Di Maria When He Was On A Hat-Trick And Misses It
Kylian Mbappe refused to allow his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Angel Di Maria to take a penalty despite him being on a hat-trick versus Marseille.
He ended up missing it.
Mbappe opened the scoring in Sunday's 'Le Classique' thanks to some superb play from Di Maria. The Argentina winger went from provider to scorer after netting just before the hour mark.
He then converted a sublime 30-yard free-kick and moments before the final whistle, he could've bagged a hat-trick.
Mbappe was fouled inside the box and insisted he took it to Di Maria's disappointment.
The French striker fluffed his chance from the spot as Marseille's Yohann Pele saved his penalty.

Mbappe learning from his childhood hero CR7, by taking the penalty when his teammate Di Maria is on the way to a hattrick. And misses... Bum, karma for being a nice teammate

Di Maria on a hat trick and PSG get a pen last minute. Mbappe argues with di Maria and takes the penalty and misses♂️ he might be an amazing player but u wouldn't see Messi or Ronaldo doing that.

Mbappe is just a wicked fellow... PSG were winning 3-1...Di Maria on two goals while him on one and they got a late penalty, Di Maria begged him to allow him complete his hat trick but Mbappe refused who went ahead to miss it.

Of course, this isn't the first penalty row at PSG. Last season, Neymar and Edinson Cavani were involved in a heated on-field clash over a penalty.
Mbappe, though, is still miles ahead of everyone in the scoring charts this season. He's got 26 league goals to his name following his strike last night.
The 20-year-old phenom is famous for crossing his arms but he didn't perform his trademark pose after finding the back of the net.
Instead he looked pretty angry as he shrugged his shoulders in front of the PSG ultras.
Meanwhile, PSG are 20 (!!) points clear at the top of Ligue 1. Madness.
