Kylian Mbappe left frustrated with Luis Enrique after PSG's draw against Borussia Dortmund

Kylian Mbappe was left frustrated with Luis Enrique following Paris Saint-Germain's draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

PSG came from behind to secure a point against Dortmund on Tuesday.

Warren Zaire-Emery's strike in the 56th minute cancelled out Karim Adeyemi's 51st minute opener.

Mbappe was denied a goal in the first-half as Niklas Sule produced a heroic clearance off the line.

The draw in Germany sees the French giants finish second in Group F behind Dortmund, who topped the group with 11 points.

PSG's inability to beat Edin Terzic's side didn't go down well with Mbappe, who was NOT happy with Enrique's tactics to hold on for the draw.

He wanted to score so PSG would top Group F and according to French outlet Le Parisien, the 24-year-old did not hold back from expressing his displeasure to the coach following the result.

What's more, per Canal Plus via Get French Football News, the forward quickly made his way through the media mixed zone and onto the team bus, where he sat alone for a few minutes before he was joined by the rest of his teammates.

The Spaniard's decision to play conservatively came after AC Milan took the lead against Newcastle United, which meant a loss against Dortmund would have seen them miss out on Champions League qualification.

Milan came from behind to beat Newcastle 2-1 at St. James' Park as they secured a spot in the Europa League.

Speaking after PSG's draw against Dortmund, Enrique said: "In the 85th minute, with Milan’s win securing our qualification, I told my players to take fewer risks. Our objective was to finish in first, but finishing second in this difficult group is a success.

"It is normal that the players are frustrated. We had five chances to score - five!

"We would have been a bit stupid to have conceded a goal in the 85th minute. When a player is frustrated, it is my job to manage this risk-taking, this tension."

As a result of PSG finishing in second place, they could be paired with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid in the last 16.
