The talk around Paris Saint-Germain at this early point in the season was expected to center on the promising start to the Christophe Galtier managerial era. This has not been the case, as much attention remains on the aftermath of PSG’s Ligue 1 home fixture against Montpellier.
Mbappe and Neymar had a minor disagreement over who would take the second penalty kick in the match. In the end, it was Neymar who took the kick and wound up scoring with ease.

However, Mbappe’s recent frustrations at PSG reportedly go far beyond this penalty dilemma with Neymar.
According to TNT Sports Brasil‘s Marcelo Bechler, Mbappe decided to re-sign at PSG with one of the reasons being that the team “would be his.” The French international wants to be the main star of the team, and he does not aspire to be much active when PSG does not maintain possession on the pitch.
More so, Mbappe expected that the rest of the team would “serve” him on the pitch, but the players do not buy into this idea.
The chemistry within PSG is far from broken early on, as the side has scored a total of 14 goals in its opening three fixtures of the new season. At the least, it will be noteworthy to see on just how Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi will play together in PSG’s upcoming Ligue 1 clash against Lille OSC.
