Thierry Henry asks Kylian Mbappé: “Is your English good, your Spanish too?”

As reported by Le Parisien, in an interview for Amazon Prime Video former Arsenal and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry asked PSG’s Kylian Mbappé how good his Spanish was, to which the 22-year-old forward responded: “Yes, it’s very good.” Mbappé continued: 

“It’s because I want to be a great player, a public figure and someone important. Today, you can’t want to be an international star and only speak French, that doesn’t make sense. You have to know how to adapt, in all circumstances.”

Henry, Prime Video’s lead Ligue 1 pundit, went on to ask: “What are you afraid off?” To which Mbappé replied: 

“Not to win. To disappoint. Because you are demanding of yourself. People are demanding of me, but I am much more demanding of myself than other people are of me. You always have an high expectations of yourself. You know, you talk to yourself, say to yourself: ‘I can’t be like that, I can’t disappoint, I can’t play badly.’ It’s something that drives you every day.”
