KYLIAN MBAPPE was booed as the PSG star arrived at the Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris.
Fans made their feelings felt about the striker after stories emerged last week that he was desperate to leave Paris-Saint Germain.
Despite being one of the star players for the club and a huge figure for the French national team, he felt the wrath of locals as he arrived at the award show.
Dressed in a dapper black suit and being shielded from the rain by an umbrella, Mbappe began his stroll towards the building in Paris.
But a chorus of boos could quickly be heard as the forward – who signed a £650,000-a-week three-year deal in May – walked with his entourage.
Apart from a fist bump with one person, the 23-year-old hardly acknowledged the crowd and kept a straight face.
He eventually arrived for the assembled team of photographers and grinned for the cameras.
The forward had to sette for sixth place in the Ballon d’Or rankings, with Karim Benzema winning the prize and Sadio Mane and Kevin De Bruyne making up the top three.
Mbappe yesterday hit out at stories which suggested he wanted to leave PSG.
After he set up Neymar’s goal for a huge win against Marseille, the ace faced the cameras for the first time since the rumours emerged.
He said: “I am very happy. I have never asked to leave in January.
“I didn’t understand why the story came out on the day of a game. I was as shocked as everyone.
“People can think I was involved but I wasn’t at all.”
Reports from last week indicated that the Frenchman felt “betrayed” by the club and some of their transfer action.
