I'm a Newcastle fan – I had to turn my Christmas lights off after Kylian Mbappe's devastating late penalty | The Sun

A FUMING Newcastle fan switched off his Christmas lights after the draw against PSG.

The disgruntled supporter was left seething after a controversial penalty decision saw Kylian Mbappe deny the Magpies a famous win.

Tino Livramento was harshly judged to have handled the ball after it deflected from his chest in the 98th minute.

PSG players went beserk as referee Szymon Marciniak refused to give the decision, only for VAR to send him to the monitor which resulted in a penalty.

Mbappe dispatched the penalty, leaving Newcastle fans devastated.

One fan, Kyle, called into talkSPORT to vent their frustration and revealed that the result dampened their festive spirit.

Kyle said: "No I am not alright.

"Everyone with half a brain cell realised that it was not the right decision and that Newcastle should have won the match.

"I had to turn my Christmas lights off man.

"I was not in the mood anymore."
