ARSENAL legend Emmanuel Petit has told Kylian Mbappe: Shut your big mouth.
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Mbappe, 23, has figured in a number of recent controversies.
The forward publicly questioned new PSG coach Christophe Galtier’s tactics and contrasted them with the way he is used in the France national team.
Mbappe has also been at the center of a row with club-mate Neymar that threatens to ruin the Ligue 1 leaders’ season.
French world champion Petit, who also won the double with Arsenal, has now blasted Mbappe over his series of media outbursts.
Petit, 52, told RMC: “It’s always about the same player and at some point it has to stop.
“Mbappe is intelligent, but does it ever occur to him two seconds after he says something that his words have consequences?
“They have a boomerang effect. He should tell his manager privately.
“Players speak about their team from the bottom of their hearts – and that’s when he makes things public.
“I can imagine Lionel Messi and company getting fed up with hearing him speak every time.

“The next step will be PSG asking him what kind of team he should pick. That will be the next step.”
Mbappe has reportedly caused tension since signing his mega-money new deal with PSG after a falling out with Neymar over who would take a penalty against Montpellier in August.
The star striker is also reportedly unhappy with how much more influence and respect the Brazil international has in the dressing room.
