“Penaltygate” at PSG: Luis Campos would have cropped Neymar and Kylian Mbappé on Sunday

This is a first shock in the PSG season. On Saturday, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar somewhat “spoiled” their team’s festival against Montpellier (5-2). Reminder of the facts: after missing the first penalty of the evening, the French international wanted to hit the second. But the Brazilian was not of the same opinion and finally decided to take care of it. Later in the evening, and while Christophe Galtier had just explained that the hierarchy of shooters was indeed Mbappé number one and Neymar number two, the latter “liked” tweets going in his direction, indicating in particular that he was shooting better the penalties than his teammate.
As often with Paris, this controversy quickly swelled. The club’s new sports advisor, Luis Campos has decided to call his two players after training at Camp des Loges on Sunday, alongside Christophe Galtier. The message passed? Do not wash dirty laundry in public. If a problem exists, it must be resolved internally and not in mondovision. According to Le Parisien, the Campos-Galtier duo managed to obtain an apology from the two protagonists.

To defend himself, Neymar said he was somewhat confused between his status as a shooter and the second penalty awarded during the match. “You are a great player and this is the one that interests me“, would have indicated Campos to Neymar, reveals the daily Ile-de-France, which specifies that Sergio Ramos had intervened on Saturday evening at the Parc des Princes to calm his two teammates.The problem seems closed“, concludes The Parisian.
