Kylian Mbappe told to be “more humble” after bad-tempered PSG clash

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has been advised to be ‘more humble’ after his role in a bad-tempered Ligue 1 clash.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side left it late to continue their 100 percent winning record in the division this season thanks to a last-minute winner from Achraf Hakimi at Metz.

The winner came with the last kick of the game and served to heighten tensions between the two sets of players after a contentious match.

The winner from Hakimi – who had also opened the scoring for PSG – led to wild scenes of celebrations from the visiting players with Metz goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja infuriated by their actions.

Metz captain Dylan Bronn had received a second yellow card for kicking the ball away in an attempt to waste time in the closing stages of the encounter.

That led to the home side’s boss Frederic Antonetti also being dismissed for his protestations as the home side desperately tried to hang on for a draw.

Ten minutes earlier, Metz players had reacted angrily after Mbappe nearly scored from his kick back to goalkeeper Oukidja following the ball being put out of play for an injury.

Mbappe attempted to lob the goalkeeper from distance with his effort, requiring a superb stop from a back-peddling Oukidja who had to claw the ball away in dramatic circumstances.

Understandably, this only served to further tensions between the two sets of players with Metz infuriated that Mbappe had seemingly attempted to score from the sportsmanlike gesture.

That prompted Antonetti to vent his frustrations towards the France international striker after the match, claiming that he had to change his behaviour if he wanted to be more loved.

The boss said: “Kylian Mbappe had better behave differently if he wants to be loved.
