Luis Enrique spoke to the media after PSG's 3-0 victory against Reims on Saturday and although he was pleased with the overall performance he still was upset with some stuff he noticed throughout the game.

Touching on Kylian Mbappe's hat-trick, Enrique stated, “We need a Kylian who continues to progress.” Despite the impressive triple, Enrique believes Mbappe could have "a better overall performance."

On Gianluigi Donnarumma's outstanding goalkeeping, Enrique remarked, “Impressive! He's a wonderful goalkeeper, we see it in training. It's very difficult to score a goal against him, he is always focused.”

Explaining Goncalo Ramos' halftime substitution, Enrique emphasized Ramos's importance and praised his work rate.

When asked about Mbappe's improvement of late, Enrique preferred to skip that question instead saying that he'd discuss the matter privately with the player, simply stating, “All players must improve. The goal is to never be satisfied with the current level.”

Reflecting on the match game plan, Enrique commended several players, highlighting Carlos Soler's exceptional performance while playing out of position (right-back), Ousmane Dembele's impact, and Lee Kang-In's versatility. Enrique stated, “Lee Kang-In is an exceptional player. He surprises me more every day.”

Enrique concluded by expressing enthusiasm for Reims' Junya Ito and praising the player, emphasizing the striker's relentless energy, saying, “My god Ito, what he is running! Until the 90th, in front, behind, impressive!”
