Kylian Mbappé Upset with Luis Enrique Over Early Substitution, Journalist Claims

Kylian Mbappé has already found himself in a minor controversy since these reports surfaced after manager Luis Enrique took the Frenchman out of the contest in the 65th minute during the match against Stade Rennais.

In a bold move, manager Enrique made a decision that likely reverberated through the squad. Trailing 1-0, PSG sought an equalizer, and it materialized with Gonçalo Ramos’ drawing a foul, resulting in a penalty kick opportunity that he successfully converted.

Loïc Tanzi from L’Equipe remarked on the issue, highlighting that this situation continues to disturb Mbappé.

“He is upset by what is happening today,” Tanzi said on the set of L’Equipe de Greg (h/t Le10Sport). “Before this story, he was the one who decided whether he wanted to play or not. It’s pretty terrible for the club.”

Moreover, the 25-year-old might incite displeasure among certain PSG fans by relinquishing the captain’s armband to Vitinha instead of passing it directly to Danilo Pereira. Usually, the outgoing captain passes the armband to the player, taking over leadership for the rest of the game.

As speculations swirl about his potential transfer to Real Madrid in the coming months, scenes like these could mark a sour ending to the 25-year-old’s tenure with his hometown club.
