Kylian Mbappe under criticism because of Lionel Messi
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Kylian Mbappe was branded selfish following his refusal to pass to new teammate Lionel Messi during Paris Saint Germain's 2-0 win over Reims at Stade Auguste Delaune on Sunday, August 29.
The Frenchman scored both goals for the Parisians but squandered their chance to increase the tally after playing the ball all by himself despite the 34-year-old standing at a vantage point.
Messi came on for Neymar on his debut for PSG but the Argentine didn't make much impact as all the goals had been scored already.
Mbappe opened the scoring in the 16th minute and then completed his brace his the 63rd minute as Mauricio Pochettino's men maintain their winning streak so far this campaign.
Sport Bible claims the 22-year-old was trying to impress the club's fans by being outstanding on the pitch but that quickly backfired as they called him out for not picking out Messi in a goalscoring opportunity.
