Kylian Mbappe says he understands fan protests during Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-1 draw with Lens on Saturday which sealed a 10th consecutive Ligue 1 title.

PSG clinched the French league title with four games to spare with the point against a 10-man Lens side, who equalised via Corentin Jean in the 88th minute.

Home fans started to make their exit in the 75th minute in protest of the club’s management, while the final whistle was greeted by booing in sections of the Parc des Princes.

The 23-year-old Mbappe believes that while anger at the club’s eventual failure to win the Champions League in spite of substantial investment in the squad this season is understandable, a need to move on remains.

“Disappointed by the fans? Me no, I’m adapting,” Mbappe said. “They want to celebrate, they celebrate, they don’t want to celebrate, they don’t celebrate. They were disappointed, we totally understand them but it’s still been a month since it’s happened.

“They wanted to send a message, the club understood it. It’s them who decide, we’re nobody to tell them to celebrate or not. We won, we are happy.”
