Kylian Mbappe Yanked Neymar Out Of PSG Team Photo After Winning French Super Cup

Kylian Mbappe was spotted yanking Neymar out of Paris Saint-Germain’s team photo following their victory in the French Super Cup.

The French champions picked up a 2-1 win over Rennes at the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre in China to secure another piece of silverware for their trophy cabinet.

And the PSG players celebrated their success by posing for a team photo alongside the trophy, but Neymar was apparently getting in the way of the photo.

Footage has emerged online of French superstar Mbappe, 20, grabbing PSG wantaway Neymar, 27, by the arm and ‘forcing’ him out of the way.

The Brazilian winger, who wants to quit the French side and has been linked with a stunning return to Barcelona, looked back at his PSG teammate after he was ejected from the celebrations.

Another clip showed Marco Verratti pulling Neymar in to celebrate his side’s success when they lifted the trophy.

The ex-Barcelona star was left out of the squad as Thomas Tuchel’s men defeated Rennes.

Adrien Hunou stunned PSG in the first half by opening the scoring, but Mbappe would pull his side back into the match after scoring a second-half equaliser.

And Angel Di Maria would come off the bench in the second half and bury home a free-kick to capture the Super Cup for PSG.

Former Monaco ace Mbappe, who was recently named the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, wants Neymar to snub a return to Barcelona and remain in the French capital.

“He has a situation that everyone knows,” he said ahead of the Super Cup clash with Rennes.

“Of course, I want him to stay. I spoke with him. He knows what I think of him and his situation.

“Everything is going well between us. We have a relationship based on honesty and respect.

“He knows that I respect him and that I admire him.”

Should Neymar leave PSG in the summer?
