Glenn Hoddle made a fool of himself after Kylian Mbappe produced a fake rabona

Paris Saint-Germain are on the brink of crashing out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage after their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

It was all going so well for the French side after Adrien Rabiot had given them the lead just after the half-hour mark.

With PSG 12 points clear in their domestic league and Madrid struggling in La Liga, it looked as though Unai Emery’s side would consign Zinedine Zidane to more misery.

And confidence was clearly high for the Parisians.

In fact, confidence was so high that they started showboating.

Kylian Mbappe did just that as he attempted a ‘fake rabona’ on Sergio Ramos before attempting to nutmeg him.

The young Frenchman is making the ‘fake rabona’ his trademark move and has already attempted it on several occasions during his career.


However, the BT Sport commentators clearly weren’t aware of Mbappe’s skills.

Co-commentator Glenn Hoddle proclaimed: ‘Even the best get it wrong! Ha ha ha!” Before suggesting it was a “failed Rabona.”

Oh dear.

Of course, football fans weren’t happy that the clueless commentators tried to do Mbappe injustice but not recognising his silky skills.


Check out the reaction:

Despite PSG now needing to beat Madrid by at least two goals in the return leg at the Parc des Princes, manager Unai Emery isn’t giving up just yet.

"I'm happy with the way the team played," Emery claimed.

"We had the game under control, and we stayed true to our principles. Our opponents were strong, especially on the counter.


"I think overall we dominated the game, we could have scored again to go ahead once more, especially if we had had some more favourable decisions.

"We're going to play the return leg at home, put them under a lot of pressure, and we'll do everything to qualify in front of our fans."

Maybe Mbappe shouldn’t be performing any fake rabonas next time, though.
