Paris Saint-Germain captain, Thiago Silva has hailed Kylian Mbappe after his record-breaking Champions League display yesternight.
Mbappe came off the bench and scored three goals in a devastating performance as PSG routed Club Brugge 5-0 on Tuesday.
This made him the youngest player to score 15 Champions League goals aged 20 years, 306 days, eclipsing Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi – who was 21 years, 288 days.
Thiago Silva was amazed by Mbappe who instantly put recent injury issues behind him.
His words, “He is well present, he is ready, he has gifts, I can’t tell you more because he is an incredible player,”
“I’m very happy for him, for the team, for the way we played today. In the first half it was very difficult, we knew it, but in the second half we were much more effective.
“We had chances, we scored. Especially Kylian, this player is magnificent.”
“We won a very tough game,”
“Very complicated. The result is exceptional.
“It’s never easy to win against Brugges in Brugges. In the Champions League outside it’s never easy. We scored five goals, it’s really exceptional. It’s a big step forward for the qualification [for the last 16].”
