PSG Ultras say goodbye to Kylian Mbappe in special way

Kylian Mbappe played his final match for PSG at the Parc des Princes on Sunday after the Frenchman confirmed he will be leaving the club in the summer. The match didn't exactly go as planned with PSG losing 3-1 to Toulouse but Mbappe did at least get on the scoresheet in what was an emotional day for the 25-year-old.

Due to the conflict between the player and the club's hierarchy, PSG didn't organise any kind of farewell for Mbappe despite the seven years of service he gave the club and countless domestic titles. Large parts of the stadium also booed him on his final appearance for the club, which would have left a sour taste in his mouth had it not been for a display by the PSG Ultras.

The Ultras, who stand behind one of the goals at the Parc des Princes, are the most loyal and passionate PSG supporters and they made sure Mbappe was sent on his way with a special tribute despite all the animosity that surrounds his departure.

Before kick-off, the PSG ultras let off flares and unveiled a remarkable Kylian Mbappe tifo to honour their greatest-ever player. They also unveiled a banner which read in French – “A child from the suburbs of Paris, who became a Paris Saint-Germain legend.”

Mbappe thanks the PSG Ultras for their support

Before a ball had even been kicked at the Parc des Princes, Mbappe showed his gratitude to the PSG Ultras by making his way over to them during the warm-up. As he saluted them, the tifo was unveiled which clearly made the Frenchman emotional.

Throughout the match, the PSG Ultras sang his name to drown out the boos from the rest of the stadium. For them, Mbappe is different to the other superstars who have come to PSG over the years in that he is a boy who grew up in Paris and dreamed of playing at the Parc des Princes.

It was a nicer farewell than the ones afforded to Lionel and Neymar who both left Paris under a cloud. Mbappe, however, should expect a warm welcome should he ever return to play against PSG in the coming years.
