From the end of 2021 until now, fans have continuously witnessed instability both on the field and in the dressing room of the PSG’s team.
The scandal of PSG players from the beginning of 2022
On August 14, 2022, Neymar mocked Mbappe when he liked an article that implied that the French striker was given the privilege of taking a penalty at PSG. Before that, Mbappe missed a penalty in PSG’s 5-2 win over Montpellier in the second round of Ligue 1. The conflict was pushed to the climax when the 23-year-old continued to want to take a second penalty but was denied. Neymar refused.
On August 13, 2022, Kylian Mbappe was shocked when he acted unprofessionally in the PSG 5-2 Montpellier match in the second round of Ligue 1. An unexpected situation occurred in the first half of the match when Vitinha was opening the phase. In attack, the French striker ran in a fairly open space, and repeatedly raised his hand to ask for the ball but was not answered by his teammates. Mbappe immediately stopped running and turned to walk even though PSG was still organizing a quick counterattack.

The scandal of PSG players from 2021
On August 11, 2021, Icardi was pressured by PSG and pushed down to practice with the youth team. The Argentine striker was accused of adultery and had problems in his relationship with his wife Wanda Nara. However, Icardi firmly denied this rumor.
On June 1, 2021, a blacklist was published by the press, revealing the names that must leave Paris Saint-Germain before entering the new season. Notably, Kylian Mbappe is rumored to be the one who sent this list to Luis Campos – PSG’s sporting director. This is said to be one of the privileges of the young French star when he renews with PSG, which is to interfere in the team’s transfer. In this list, names like Kehrer, Draxler, Ander Herrera, Kurzawa, Icardi, Gueye and Sergio Rico are all eliminated.
On May 17, 2021, French media revealed that midfielder Idrissa Gueye refused to play in the match against Montpellier in the 37th round of Ligue 1 last season. The reason for this confusing decision was that the 32-year-old did not want to wear a special edition shirt, designed to celebrate the international day against discrimination against LGBT people.
On March 10, 2021, according to Marca newspaper, the PSG dressing room erupted into a fierce dispute between Neymar and Gianluigi Donnarumma after the defeat to Real Madrid in the second leg of the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League 2021/22.
Accordingly, Neymar is said to be the one who started the argument when he criticized the Italian goalkeeper for making a mistake in the first goal. Donnarumma is also not average when he replied that it was Neymar who failed to pass the ball, causing “Los Blancos” to counterattack and have a second goal. Even, the argument between these two players became so fierce that other teammates at PSG had to rush into the two stars to avoid clashes.
On November 10, 2021, PSG posted an announcement that female player Aminata Diallo was detained by police for being involved in an attack. More surprisingly, the victim of the attack was Diallo’s teammate at PSG and the French team, Kheira Hamraoui.
The 25-year-old female player was accused by the police of hiring two men to assault her teammate to gain a starting spot at both the French club and PSG. Kheira Hamraoui was repeatedly hit in the leg by two strangers with an iron rod, causing her to need stitches and be unable to play in the Champions League match against Real Madrid on November 9, 2021.
On September 28, 2021, in the match PSG won 2-0 against Montpellier, Mbappe admitted to calling Neymar a “beggar” because the Brazilian striker did not pass the ball to him. “Yes, I said so,” Mbappe confessed. “It’s something that happens in football, I talked to him (Neymar) about that incident.”
PSG has a perfect response to criticism from the public after the “penalty gate” case of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. During the 90 minutes of the match against Lille at Pierre-Mauroy Stadium in the third round of Ligue 1 on the morning of August 22, the defending champion showed overwhelming strength. The impressive performance and good coordination of the trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar turned the highlight match of the 3rd round into a walk with PSG.
