Champions League: Mbappe is PSG’s golden boy – Neymar admits
Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, has described his team mate Kylian Mbappe, as the golden boy of the club.
Neymar joined PSG in the summer of 2017, but the Brazilian’s future has been the subject of speculation for a long time.
He was joined by Mbappe, who switched from Ligue 1 rivals Monaco.
“First of all, I was very touched by the man he is. Kylian is very considerate, always happy, polite and kind to everyone. He is a very beautiful person. That’s why we’ve got along so well since our first contact.
“Then, of course, I had the opportunity to watch him train, to observe his speed, his dribbling repertoire, his intelligence and to see his humility to keep evolving. There, I said to myself: ‘he is our golden boy!’
“Speed alone doesn’t mean anything. You have to be smart to use it properly, and Kylian is. He is not only very smart and fast, but he also has a huge repertoire of dribbling,” Neymar told France Football.
Both players will be hoping to help PSG win the Champions League, after failing at the last hurdle in 2020.
The Paris club lead Bayern Munich 3-2 from the first leg of their quarter-final clash
