Kylian Mbappé: “People are talking too much about us playing with 4 attackers.”

Speaking to Canal + after a 4-1 victory over AS Monaco at the Stade Louis II, PSG attacker Kylian Mbappé touched on a number of topics.

On the 4-2-4:

I think above all that we are talking a bit too much about us playing with 4 attackers. I feel like we are playing with 4 attackers in a 5-a-side team. But we are playing with 11 men. We know that we have very good players, but this whole Fantastic Four thing, all that, it is not our thing. We, we want to help the team to win, we want to win trophies and we leave superlatives used to describe us to someone else.

On attackers making defensive efforts:

I spoke with your colleagues not too long ago, I said that we were aware. Now, it is going to be throughout the entire campaign and not across 3-4 matches that you will see if we are capable of making defensive efforts when the team needs us above all.

On not celebrating the first goal that he scored tonight:

No, I must show respect. This is where I was first discovered, I experienced my first great moments here, so I must show respect. (Why did you celebrate for the 2nd goal?) There were some insults from the crowd, I had to respond but it was playful.
