Kylian Mbappe handed three-match ban by French Football Federation
Written by: Neelav Chakravarti
The Frenchman has scored 36 goals, in 41 games this season.
Other than winning a solitary 2018-19 Ligue 1 title, Kylian Mbappe is not having the best of endings to a very erratic football season.
The Frenchman has been given a three-match suspension for his shambolic tackle in the Coupe de France final. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner was given a straight red card in extra-time, as PSG crashed to Rennes on penalties.
The French Football Federation has confirmed that the former AS Monaco man will miss three PSG matches due to this. Mbappe sat out his side's recent match to Montpellier, so will miss two matches for his side this season.
PSG play Nice on 4th May, and will play Angers on 11th May.

This season, Mbappe scored 36 goals, in 41 games. PSG have won the league title, but crashed out of the UEFA Champions League after losing to Manchester United.
Against Rennes, he attempted a horrendous challenge on Damien Da Silva. Mbappe caught him on the knee, with studs showing, and received an automatic red card.
The FFF in a statement, said, "Meeting on Thursday, May 2, 2019, the Federal Commission of Discipline, following the final of the Coupe de France between Stade Rennais and Paris-Saint-Germain, Saturday, April 27 at the Stade de France, sanctioned Kylian Mbappe with a three-game suspension and opened proceedings against Neymar."
