Kylian Mbappe “has an engine in his butt that everyone else wants to have,” according to Thomas Muller.
Mbappe is one of the highest U21 goalscorers in 2018, and has started this season in fine form.
He has netted four goals and contributed another two assists in three games for PSG this season, carrying on from his phenomenal World Cup.
The 19-year-old featured in France’s first game since being crowned world champions in July, playing the full 90 minutes of the 0-0 stalemate with Germany.
Germany forward Thomas Muller was on the opposite side, and has been more than impressed with the teenager.
“He has an engine in his butt that everyone else wants to have,” Muller said.
“He makes one fast step and leaves the opponent behind. You have to defend players like him with more than one player, even if he leaves one player behind the next one has to try to stop him.
“That’s the only way you can stop remarkable players like him. Of course, he had some moments during the game that the spectators enjoyed.
“We had a lot of pressure before the game. But we responded in the way we had to.
“You have to make distinctions. It wasn’t our best game and we have a lot to pay back. That was the first key step, but that’s all.”
