  • The two were said not to see eye to eye, but Mbappe rebuffed those claims

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have seemingly yet to put their differences aside. The duo was reported to have had issues to the extent that Mbappe wanted Neymar out of the club. Allegations that Mbappe vehemently denied.

PSG won their second game of the season by beating their opponents 5-2, in a game that was marred by deep controversies.

PSG was awarded two penalties, with Mbappe missing the first one. Neymar converted the other penalty to score the first of his two goals of the night.

Neymar, who took penalties last weekend and in the French Suoer Cup in Mbappe's absence, was seemingly mad over Galtier's choice.

A Twitter user Neymargiabr said,

Now it's official, Mbappe is the one who takes the penalties at PSG. Clearly, this is a contract thing because, in no club in the world that has Neymar, he would be the second collector, none!!
It seems that because of the contract, Mbappe is the owner of PSG!

Neymar liked this tweet in an apparent message of dissent to PSG, as Sportskeeda reports.
