Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) fans are concerned about Kylian Mbappe's inclusion in the starting lineup for their Ligue 1 clash against Lyon today (September 18). They have expressed on Twitter that the Frenchman will be up to his old selfish antics and not link up well with Messi upon receiving an attacking opportunity.
The 2018 World Cup winner has been accused of being selfish this season, after missing out on several opportunities to pass to Lionel Messi. The Frenchman has often decided to take on the shot, in the process squandering the opportunity, rather than pass to the Argentine.
While Messi has racked up an impressive seven assists in seven games, his French teammate has not managed one, much to the ire of the fans.
PSG fans did not mince words when they took to Twitter to react to the starting lineup for their away clash against Lyon. They called on Mbappe to pass to the Argentine when the opportunity arose.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Parc des Princes faithful:
