Kylian Mbappe scored a dramatic late winner for Paris Saint-Germain vs Rennes on Friday night – but fans think Lionel Messi wanted the glory and was asking for a cut back.
Messi set up the 23-year-old in the 93rd minute and Mbappe managed to squeeze a shot past Dogan Alemdar to snatch all three points.
Alemdar got a hand to Mbappe’s shot and it might not have been the best decision, as Messi was asking for a cutback earlier in the move.
Mbappe ended up scoring but Messi didn’t look thrilled after being ignored by his fellow forward.
Goal – mbappe
Assist- Leo Messi
Fans noticed the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s reaction online and were quick to react.
One commented: “And this is the problem PSG will have in champions league. They should cut back those passes Messi will score and assist more for them.”
Another tweeted: “He didn’t even celebrate the goal despite assisting.”
A third added: “Asking for the cut back in that position was the right thing to do.”
Mbappe had been PSG’s key attacking threat throughout the contest and he hit the post in the first half.
He also scored earlier in the second half but it was ruled out by VAR for an offside.
PSG are top of Ligue 1 by 16 points and have lost just one game this season, the reverse fixture against Rennes in October.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have a huge Champions League last 16 first leg tie with Real Madrid coming up on Tuesday.
Pochettino has been linked with the Manchester United job in recent days and pressure is mounting in Paris.
Despite that, the Argentine coach is calling for unity among fans.
He told SportMob: “The fans are very important for a club and they have the right to express themselves, but we need unity.
“We are entering an important moment of the season and we need to be together.
“As I always say, we can sit down at the end of the season to try to correct things, because there are probably things to improve so that our club continues to be one of the biggest in the world.”
