Even when Paris Saint-Germain is defeating and impressive, even when Neymar and Messi are at their best, the scandals continue.
Kylian Mbappe was the signature of the storm on the tour, who was quite active in the 2:5 against Montpellier with a goal (and a missed penalty) in his first game of the season (he missed the previous two against Nantes and Clermont due to injury), but attracted attention after looking nervous and grumpy during the game
In one of the moves, Mbappe was seen reacting with canceling gestures in the direction of Vitinia, after the midfielder did not give him an outburst.
Mbappe was recorded with nervous hand movements, and immediately afterwards stopped running when PSG's attack was in full swing.
"It looks like he's doing a strike on the pitch," the French media noted in reference to the moment in question.

At the end it turned out that Mbappe came on to play despite receiving worrying news about his personal life near the opening whistle.
According to RMC, "this was the main reason why he seemed to be in his own bubble" during the game.
Coach Christophe Galtier had a different version.
"Kilian hasn't played for three weeks, so it's quite natural that he's not at the pace of his friends. When he's 100 percent fit, he'll make the difference as always. He suffered a bit of physical strain, it wasn't easy for him. That's also why I replaced him." .
Marco Verratti claimed that "it's actually very nice when Killian is nervous".
According to him, "Kilian always wants to be at his best, and after he missed the penalty he was disappointed with himself. When he misses, he's frustrated and disappointed, which is completely normal. If he's nervous, it's nice - because it shows how much he cares. He always wants to be the best player Good on the field."
