- The Brazilian did not like that his partner tried to force him out this summer after renewing until 2025.
Al Khelaifi advanced in June that PSG needed to change and adopt a more austere character. In other words, he doesn’t let himself be controlled by a locker room with so many stars. A subliminal message that pointed to Neymar, who discussed his possible departure in the summer for a few weeks. Reluctant to leave, the Brazilian was particularly annoyed that it was Mbappé who tried to force that move after signing his contract until 2025.
It was a stab in the back. Neymar, to whom everything comes, criticized his partner for entering into that dirty game. Although the ball heals everything and smiles prevail on the court, the relationship between the two is not the best. It doesn’t help that the Brazilian and the French want to play the leading role every week in a PSG in which Christophe Galtier knows that, beyond any strategy, he has to learn to manage the ego of his players.
Mbappé is the darling of the club. Nobody forgets that he stayed when Real Madrid was already preparing to welcome him and it is inevitable to think that he has more privileges than the rest. His coach acknowledged at a press conference that he is number one on the list when it comes to taking a penalty, despite the fact that on Saturday night he missed his against Montpellier. After that action, Neymar prevented him from redeeming himself from eleven meters.
The Brazilian 10 was responsible for launching the second penalty and the controversy came later. Some Twitter profiles criticized that Mbappé assumed this responsibility ahead of Neymar, and he gave an impact on two accounts by giving the ‘Like’ icon: “Now it’s official, Mbappé throws the maximum penalties at PSG. It’s clearly part of his contract, because in no club would Neymar be the second pitcher”.
It was not the best weekend for Mbappé, also upset with Vitinha for a move in the first half in which the Portuguese did not pass the ball. The winger, angry, left the race with a fuss: “He is a competitive player, he has a lot of personalities and he would have liked to continue that action. These are things that happen, but he has no significance. Kylian needs a little more preparation”, Christophe Galtier explained .
Mbappé stopped running and sulked because Vitinha didn't pass the ball to him.— iR Sport (@iRSport_) August 15, 2022
Too much ego NEVER helps a team 🤯pic.twitter.com/qq2ygdL1YY
Although only two league games have been played, and that PSG occupies the first place in the table, they live with the same problems as always. Yesterday the champion had a break and Neymar took the opportunity to travel to Barcelona, where he could be seen at the casino participating in the ‘Estrellas Poker Tour’ event. His way of disconnecting after a triumph conditioned by the reactions and the bad faces.
