Kylian Mbappé named Champions League player of the week

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé has been named the Champions League player of the week by UEFA following his performance against Real Madrid on Tuesday evening.

The Frenchman had arguably been the centre of attention in the build-up to the game, having not only been PSG’s main threat this season but also after pushing for a move to Los Blancos last summer.

The World Cup winner responded to the occasion with a performance that culminated in a fantastic 94th minute winner, slaloming through the La Liga side’s defence and finishing emphatically past Thibaut Courtois.

He remains tight-lipped on his future, having previously stated that he was fully focusing on the Round of 16 tie rather than the club he will be playing at next season.
