Fans spot message on PSG manager’s notepad aimed at ‘unhappy’ Mbappe

Football fans have spotted an interesting Kylian Mbappe-related message on the back of PSG head coach Christophe Galtier’s notepad.

The cameras cut to the French manager during his team’s 1-1 draw with Benfica in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

And some eagle-eyed viewers watching the game realised that a note on the back read “Kylian pref (the right)”. The short message is believed to relate to a social media post Mbappe shared after PSG’s goalless draw with Reims

Mbappe posted a picture of himself with the hashtag “pivot gang” – something Get French Football News claim relates to him not wanting to play up front on his own.

So Galtier’s note appears to relate to Mbappe wanting to be on the wing as opposed to playing through the middle for the club.

And it comes only hours after reports that the French international wants to leave the Ligue 1 champions in the January transfer window.

According to Marca, the relationship between Mbappe and the Ligue 1 side is “completely broken” and there is “no turning back”.

Journalist Daniel Riolo of RMC said: “He is in a negative spirit to the point that he himself says he will leave PSG in January if there is an opening. “But in any case at the end of the season, it’s over. He’s fed up!”

PSG’s sporting director Luis Campos then came out and denied the reports. He told Canal Plus: “I am with Kylian Mbappe every day. He has never talked to me about leaving in January.

“It’s not a statement from the player, it’s [from the press], and to have such information before a match like this is very serious.

“That’s why I’m here, to deny and say clearly that Kylian Mbappe has never spoken to me or to the president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi] to leave PSG in January.”

Mbappe scored from the penalty spot as they took the lead against Benfica on Tuesday. But Benfica got a penalty of their own in the second half and Joao Mario scored to earn the Portuguese side a point in the French capital.
