Deschamps Hails Extraordinary Mbappe
Didier Deschamps says what Kylian Mbappe is achieving at his young age is quite extraordinary.
The 19-year-old attacker has continued to impress with PSG, producing a mouthwatering display against Lyon.
Mbappe has already won two Ligue 1 titles and a World Cup and ahead of international friendlies against Iceland and Germany, Deschamps has heaped praise on the young attacker.
“Kylian is doing some extraordinary things. What he can do at such a young age is not normal,” he said on Monday.
“You can’t put him in any category. A player like him only appears occasionally. I’m privileged because he’s French and he plays with us.
“He never did the simple things, but he always learnt quickly. [Against Lyon] he just confirmed what he is able to achieve, and his talent. He knows that he can still improve. What he has been able to do so far, including the four goals, that’s just Kylian.
“There are a lot of Kylians, but only one Kylian Mbappe. He’s doing amazing things. What he has achieved until now is extraordinary.”
Mbappe has scored 10 goals in just seven games in all competitions for PSG this season.
