Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has chosen to focus on his team’s collective brilliance after his stunner at Saint-Etienne on Sunday night. The Frenchman slotted an impeccable volley into the top left corner to hand PSG a slender 1-0 win at Saint-Etienne.
His 73rd-minute strike took his tally to 19 goals in 18 Ligue 1 appearances, making him the only player to have such a prolific impact for 45 years.
The hero of the night, Mbappe, exhibited tremendous technique and precision to find the back of the net in such an audacious fashion, but the player refused to hog all the credit for league leaders’ win.
“We played against a good team, especially at home,” he told Canal+, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
“Few teams will come here to win, we did it. We are happy and we leave with the three points. We must continue and aim as high as possible. My stats are good, but the team is better.”
The opposition coach, Jean-Louis Gasset, hailed the Ligue 1 champions for their commitment while tipping Mbappe to become the best in the world.
“Paris respected us because it was practically the same team that played against Manchester United,” Gasset told reporters, having seen Tuchel make three alterations from the side that triumphed at Old Trafford.
“We decided to defend low and try to counter if we could. We lost on a goal that came from elsewhere – a 20-year-old, who will soon be the best player in the world. He’s going to be the best player in the world in two or three years if he continues like that.”
