Kylian Mbappe: "There is still a long way to go for me at PSG"


After the PSG vs. Nantes (4-2), a match in which Kylian Mbappe scored his 201st goal with the Parisian team, thus becoming the club's all-time leading scorer, the France World Cup winner stopped in front of the Canal+ microphone to speak about what this record means to him.

Mbappe did not hide the fact that during the game against Nantes he was looking to break the record for top scorer: "I knew I was going to break it, so I didn't put pressure on myself. I played the game normally. And then at the end, at the last minute, the goal came, it's lovely".

The French striker also highlighted the importance of having achieved this record in the Parc des Princes. "Playing here is already a privilege. I have the opportunity to enjoy every moment, I have progressed as a player, and I have changed a lot", said Mbappe.

The native of Bondy has never hidden his feelings towards Paris, and this time was no exception: "I came to PSG being a young player, maybe talented as much as you want, but I still was a young player. As a man, I learned a lot too. But as I said, playing for Paris Saint-Germain, especially for me as I was born in Paris, is something special."

Kylian Mbappe achieved this record wearing the captain's armband after Marquinhos left the field feeling discomfort in his hip after getting hit in the ribs. The Parisian no. 7 also spoke about it: "If someone had told me that I was going to score this goal with the captain's armband, I wouldn't have believed it."

Kylian Mbappe: "I want to write history in France, in Paris"

Despite the fact that every week Mbappe is seemingly sent to Real Madrid by the Spanish media, we will have to pay attention to the recent words of the French attacker. The third-highest assister in the history of PSG made it clear that he still wants to do more things in the French capital.

"I play at writing history and I have always said that I wanted to write history in France, in the capital, in my country, in my city. I am doing it, it is beautiful but there is still a long way to go," said Mbappe before also making it clear that the broken record "is a personal achievement," but that he "also came for collective achievements."

Those final words stated by Kylian obviously make us think of the Champions League that PSG has yet to win and the next midweek game against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena where Paris Saint-Germain needs to come from behind (0-1 loss in the first leg) if they want to advance.

When questioned about whether he will score goals next Wednesday at Bayern Munich, Mbappe did not hide his determination: "We are going to qualify, we are determined, we have regained confidence and now we have to win."

Usually, the Bondy native is not a man of short words. We will see what happens next and if he can extend PSG's European run.
