After Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe reacted angrily to being substituted on Saturday, he was later slammed for some ineffective showboating of late.
The 22-year-old is currently experiencing one of the worst scoring runs of his young career, having now gone four consecutive matches without finding the back of the net.
Former France international Jean-Michel Larque, who represented PSG both as a player and a coach, has now hit out at Mbappe's tendency for showboating of late.
"He's complicating everything he does," Larque told RMC Sport's Top of the Foot show.
"Why is (he) doing rabonas? Why is he doing 12 stepovers if he's just staying in the same place?
"The boy needs a detoxification, a cure for his football which is totally polluted with unnecessary moves. What gives a boy like him his strength is his speed, but we're not seeing that anymore."

Mbappe was not happy when Mauricio Pochettino substituted him off with 10 minutes to go during Les Parisiens' 1-0 win over Angers on Saturday, and Larque has also questioned whether or not the new PSG coach will be able to get the best out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
"I'm going to see if Pochettino has more courage than (previous PSG manager Thomas) Tuchel, or more of a hold of Mbappe," he added.
"I don't know the little secrets of Camp des Loges, I don't know if it was Tuchel who commanded Mbappe or the other way around.
"He needs to go clear his mind and watch some videos where he plays one-twos or drops deep for the ball.
"Today, he wants the ball at his feet so he can ridicule his opponent. Obviously, with his burst of speed he can get past opponents, but he will lose the ball in behind.
"I don't have the stats, but against (Olympique Marseille last Wednesday), he lost an incredible number of balls."
