Kylian Mbappé: “After St Étienne, I thought it was dead. I cried the entire night through. I was hurt but I didn’t want to show it.”

Speaking to RTL after PSG’s 3-0 victory over RB Leipzig in the Champions’ League, Kylian Mbappé confirmed that he wants an all-Ligue 1 final.

On his fitness difficulties:

After St Étienne, I thought it was dead. I cried the entire night through. I was hurt but I didn’t want to show that to the others… I am going to leave my body out on the field on Sunday! I want to win the Champions’ League!

On who he wants to face in the Champions’ League final:

I have a preference for Lyon of course, a French club. If we don’t value our Ligue 1, who will? If it is Bayern, ok, but Lyon would have a special taste to it.

On Neymar:

With Neymar we share similar traits, we have a lot of fun but we understood that we needed to be less focused on ourselves. We need others to win.

On similarities with the France World Cup adventure:

Yes, I am feeling the same thing. We have succeeded in creating a squad where everyone brings something to the table. It is easier to run for a friend who you like. I do not know if that will be what allows us to win this but it will contribute to it.
