Neymar pushes Metz keeper to the floor after Mbappe taunted him over PSG winner
Neymar pushed Metz’s Alexandre Oukidja to the floor after fellow star Kylian Mbappe taunted the goalkeeper after Paris Saint Germain scored a last minute winner to make it 2-1.
Wing-back Achraf Hakimi scored a 95th minute stunner to win PSG the match with the last kick of the game before tempers flared.
Forward phenomenon Mbappe ran over to the keeper as his teammates were celebrating and taunted the 33-year-old before running to join his team.
But Oukidja was left fuming as he chased the 22-year-old, before his PSG teammates came to the rescue and Neymar shoved the Metz shot-stopper, causing him to topple over.
The incident triggered a brawl that broke out at the end of the match after a feisty affair throughout.
Hakimi scored a sublime volley which had to be checked by VAR before the officials decided it had already crossed the line prior to being cleared.
Metz clawed their way back with a goal but self-destructed with both their captain and manager being sent off late-on.
And there was an incident where Mbappe ruffled the home fans’ feathers by seemingly trying to lob Oukidja when he was meant to give possession back to Metz.
Do you think Kylian Mbappe and the PSG squad's temperament is holding them back? Let us know in the comments section.
PSG continue to show glimpses of shakiness despite leading the Ligue 1 table by seven points and their involvement in petulant behaviour is an indication that things are not quite clicking yet for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
They drew their opening Champions League game of the campaign to Club Brugge and last weekend saw Lionel Messi and Pochettino have an open disagreement after the Argentine was substituted.
They will face Montpellier at the Parc des Princes next in the league.
