During Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-0 win over Stade Brest in Ligue 1 on Saturday, PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe lashed out at an opponent physically and verbally at the fourth official and the league.
An obvious reason for the bad mood of the 23-year-old could not be identified. Because Mbappe himself had put PSG ahead in the 32nd minute, when there was great excitement two minutes later: Mbappe first fouled Brest player Hugo Magnetti on the sidelines with a light touch on the foot and a kick in the back. Mbappe then started a pack formation as he then stopped Magnetti from running away by holding his arm.
Mbappe vs Fourth Official: ‘You don’t see it’
The referee punished both players with a warning – much to the incomprehension of the duo, who had to be separated from teammates. Mbappe couldn’t be calmed down at all and launched a tirade towards the fourth official, which was picked up by the outside microphones.
“Why am I getting a yellow card? Why am I getting a yellow card? Come on, explain that! You don’t even know how to whistle here, you don’t know that. It’s always the same in this league, yes, it’s always the same. You, you’re just waiting the side, you don’t see it,” Mbappe ranted.
The striker has provided ten goals and eight assists in his 19 Ligue 1 games this season while also picking up five yellow cards.
