WATCH: PSG fans invade pitch to celebrate with Kylian Mbappé in brilliant fancy dress

The players seemed to appreciate it, too.

PSG are tearing teams apart with ease this season. And you’d expect nothing less from a team with an attacking trio of Neymar, Édinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappé.

Cavani had put the league leaders 3-1 up against Rennes last night in a 4-1 demolition when two fans decided to celebrate in real style, donning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes.

Why? You’ve probably seen that amongst the PSG squad there is a running joke that Kylian Mbappeé has a striking resemblance to one of the TMNT, Donatello. The players found it so funny that they pranked the young forward with a gift of a Donatello mask, much to the amusement of Thiago Silva.

The fans seem to find the comparison hilarious as well, so two travelling fans decided to invade the pitch dressed as the Mutant Ninja Turtles during the celebrations and join in on the fun.

Dani Alves and Mbappé himself both seemed to love it, as the Frenchman hugged the fans who had put such effort into the stunt.

They were of course removed from the ground by stewards, and will probably receive a stadium ban but let’s see the funny side; Kylian Mbappé certainly did.
