Despite not having played for Monaco almost since the start of the season, Kylian Mbappe played the full 90 minutes for Paris Saint-Germain against Metz, and there is no doubt his debut was a positive one, scoring, generally looking very well, and last but not least, appearing to have a certain… understanding with Neymar on the pitch.
It’s easy to play with Neymar. I have only had one training session with him but it’s really easy
the 18-year-old forward told reporters after PSG’s 5-1 win, in which he scored one of the goals.
He transforms you. You have to adapt, but it will make you a better player
the youngster said, looking thrilled at having such a teammate to influence his game, his way of thinking and doing things on the pitch.
Mbappe was also asked if he thinks he, himself, and his teammates can do the same for Neymar, making him an even better player, and his answer was rather… diplomatic.
That is going to be complicated as he is already at the top of world football. The idea is to keep him at that level. We will do everything we can to keep him there because he can win us titles
the newly-signed PSG forward said. Next, the Paris side is traveling to Glasgow, to face Celtic on Tuesday night, their first game in this season’s Champions League group stage.
