Lionel Messi’s surprising reaction to Mbappé’s injury against Montpellier
PSG visited Montpellier with the aim of getting out of the soccer slump, just before the last 16 of the Champions League against Bayern Munich. The Ligue 1 champions, who were without Neymar from the start (due to muscle fatigue), were also without Kylian Mbappé, who was out injured. Now, Lionel Messi’s reaction to the departure of ‘Donatello’ has come to light.
The team coached by Christophe Galtier is not going through its best moment. They have just dropped points in Ligue 1 and the advantage with the second in the table is minimal. A few days before the match against Bayern Munich, there is uncertainty about the future of the Parisians in the international tournament, where the French are looking for their first UCL.
Against Montpellier, Leo Messi’s team performed poorly and Kylian Mbappé did not have a good time. The Frenchman missed two penalties (the first one was disallowed because the home goalkeeper went forward) and in the 20th minute he felt a discomfort that forced him to leave the field. In this way, the maximum winner of the Ballon d’Or (7) was left alone in the attack.
Lionel Messi’s reaction to Mbappé’s departure:
The Argentina international, who shone at the World Cup in Qatar, could not believe what he experienced in Ligue 1. The ’10’ of the Albiceleste showed his concern and it was visible in his reaction to seeing Mbappé leave the field of play. Messi finished the match with strike partners Hugo Ekitike and Carlos Soler.
