Annecy players mock Kylian Mbappé celebration following Marseille victory

FC Annecy players mimicked Kylian Mbappé’s (24) celebrations following the club’s shock Coupe de France victory over Olympique de Marseille on Wednesday. 

Mid-table Ligue 2 side Annecy shocked Les Phocéens on Wednesday night. In front of a packed Vélodrome crowd, they beat Marseille on penalties (7-6) after the home side had given themselves a lifeline in normal time. François-Régis Mughe scored a 96th-minute equaliser before Leonardo Balerdi missed the decsivie spot-kick. 

The defeat came just days after Paris Saint-Germain beat Marseille at the Vélodrome. Following that result, Mbappé was videoed in the dressing room, congratulating his teammates and shouting “That’s a day’s work.”

The Annecy squad imitated that reaction in the very same dressing room after Wednesday’s shock victory. “Oh Kyky (Mbappé), you don’t do the work, this is a day’s work,” said one player as he entered the dressing room. Other players then also mimicked the celebration as they entered the dressing room, repeating Mbappé’s mantra after a memorable and famous victory at the Vélodrome.
