KYLIAN MBAPPE has sparked controversy after he appeared to attack the Paris Saint-Germain manager in a now-deleted Instagram post.
The superstar forward appeared to criticize gaffer Christophe Galtier for the role he has played.
PSG boss Galtier has usually played Mbappe through the middle, leading an attack that also includes Lionel Messi and Neymar.
But the 23-year-old striker appears to have exhausted his role.
After Saturday’s 0-0 draw in Reims, Mbappe wrote on Instagram: “Gate a draw, back on Tuesday. #icicestparis #pivotgang.”
And it’s the latest hashtag that sparked the controversy.
The “#pivotgang” suggests Mbappe is unhappy at leading the line alone and would rather play with another striker.
The world champion has previously admitted he has “more freedom” playing for France as he plays with Olivier Giroud up front.
Just last month, Mbappe vented his frustration at having to play in a pivot at PSG.
He said on national duty: “I play differently, they ask me about different things here than at the club. I have a lot more freedom here (at the national team).

“The coach knows there’s a number 9 like Olivier (Giroud) who occupies the defense. Me, I can walk around, go into the room, ask for the balls.
“It’s different in Paris, it doesn’t exist. I’m asked to do the shoot, it’s different.”
Mbappe quickly deleted the post after uploading it to his Insta story after the match.
In the same game, Sergio Ramos was sent off for the 28th time in his career after being cautioned twice in a row TEN SECONDS.
