In a statement quoted by PSG Report, the Spanish coach Luis Enrique expressed his satisfaction, saying:

"Kylian Mbappé for me is the best player in the world. But more than his technical qualities, what struck me was his human quality. It's a pleasure to have him in the locker room. He's a leader always with a smile."

Mbappe has been involved in a total of 23 games in the UCL and has found the back of the net 22 times in addition to his eight assists in the competition.

Fans took to X (formerly Twitter) to react to the fantastic stats of the Frenchman.

'This man a overrated'

@DiarioSpain posted:

'Mbappe himself is a joke'

@Elbicho_RMFC replied:

'Better than Messi already'

'Going to be the next GOAT?'

The undebatable importance of Mbappe to the reformed project of PSG comes amid the player's reluctance to sign a new contract.

The latest report regarding the forward's contract situation from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano states that the 24-year-old could join Spanish giants Real Madrid in the summer of 2024.

Mbappe equals Ronaldo, Messi’s record

In a previous report, Sports Brief stated that Kylian Mbappe has joined an exclusive list with his brace against Ligue 1 contenders OGC Nice.

Mbappe maintained an active involvement in scoring or assisting in goals for PSG over 15 consecutive matches, a feat reported by SportBible. This achievement places Mbappe in the company of players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
