Kylian Mbappe Given €180,000 Fine By Paris Saint-Germain
If you turn up late for work, then you fully expect to face the consequences, but what if your name is Kylian Mbappe?
Well, it turns out a World Cup winner receives a much bigger punishment than most for failing to turn up on time.
In October last year, ahead of PSG’s Ligue 1 tie against Marseille, the 20-year-old, who has scored 31 goals in 38 games this season, paid the price for his lack of punctuality to a team meeting.
It has been revealed that he and teammate Adrien Rabiot were both fined €180,000 for the breach of club conduct.
Mbappe signed a document to acknowledge the fact he breached rules for poor conduct and accepted the fine.
The money will be sent directly to the Paris Saint-Germain foundation, according to Spanish publication AS.
This isn’t the first time Adrien Rabiot has been punished for his actions.
The 23-year-old Frenchman, who is out of contract in the summer, was left out of the Champions League squad to face Manchester United earlier this month.
Following the defeat he fully embraced that he has no future at the club by partying with friends. PSG took action and suspended the player until the end of the month.
The club were also unhappy with Rabiot ‘liking’ a video posted on social media by Patrice Evra, who celebrated the win in the stands.
“Adrien Rabiot has received a letter suspending him,” a source told AFP.
“I find unacceptable the attitude and lack of professionalism of a player like Adrien Rabiot towards the club, his teammates and the fans,” PSG sporting director Antero Henrique said on RMC Sport, referring to the night out.
“Remember up to June 30, 2019 he is part of our squad.”
