As many football fans identified a sequence of play, where he could have squared the ball to a teammate and best friend Hakimi.
Instead, the 2018 World Cup winner opted to use his pace and trickery to bypass his marker, which yielded no positive dividends.
The incident did not go down with most viewers monitoring the game, as many of them took a swipe at Mbappe.
"A pass to Hakimi would have been the best option but Mbappe wants to be in the spotlight and went for a fruitless dribble."
"Mbappe strikes with his selfishness again, this time to his own boy Hakimi."
@breathMessi21 claims Mbappe's selfishness is increasing by the day:
"Mbappe having another disaster class but the funnier thing, he is getting more selfish with every match and no PSG coach can see this."
'Selfish' Kylian Mbappe? Interesting statistics show PSG star is yet to assist Lionel Messi or Neymar
Another user @Frenkiesmo_Gone reckons Madrid's inability to sign Mbappe was actually a blessing in disguise for the Spanish side:
"Mbappe completely ignores his teammates, it's so frustrating, he could have set up Hakimi for a 1v1 with the keeper just by a simple pass but no he wants to do it all by himself, such a selfish player, Madrid dodged a bullet with this one."
@obrempong warned Mbappe's self-centredness could go a long run to affect PSG as the season unfolds:
"Mbappe will cost this PSG team big time if he continues this unnecessary selfishness of his smh."
