A month after scoring a World Cup final hat-trick, but also inexplicably losing said final, Kylian Mbappe begins to return to his former self. The French World Cup winner played 35 minutes in his PSG return, a 1-0 defeat to Rennes.

Mbappé has 13 goals in 17 games this season for PSG in Ligue 1 as the French giants are comfortable leaders in first place. Mbappé and company are focused on finally winning the UEFA Champions League as that is the main goal for the club. PSG will start their Round of 16 tie against Bayern Munich on February 14.

On Monday, a video of Kylian Mbappé leaving a PSG training session went viral as the forward laughed with a World Cup 2022 man of the match trophy as he made a strange gesture mimicking Emiliano Martinez.

Kylian Mbappe imitates Dibu Martinez

Kylian Mbappé was the subject of many of Dibu Martinez’s jokes during Argentina’s World Cup celebrations in Buenos Aires. The Argentina goalkeeper held a makeshift baby with Kylian Mbappé’s face on it as the Argentina team was on the victory bus and drove through the streets of Buenos Aires.

Dibu Martinez’s celebration was seen as in poor taste after gesturing with the best goalkeeper award in his pelvic area. While a national hero in Argentina, many around the world have commented that it ruined a great moment for the player who had a magnificent game in the final.
