PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has been described as so good he’s from “another planet” by Marcel Desailly, who has also stated there is still room for improvement for the 18-year-old.
Mbappe is currently on a season-long from Monaco after banging in 26 goals last term, with the move expected to be made permanent in 2018 for €145, with Mbappe having struck one of Europe’s most-feared striking triumvirates alongside Neymar Junior and Edinson Cavani.
Mbappe has netted 17 times so far this season already, with former France international and 1998 World Cup winner Desailly singing the youngster’s praises.
“Even at his young age, he doesn’t have to prove how exceptional a player he is,” said Desailly.
“The first thing he will have to prove is that he can get into the national team and be its leader. And that’s what matters before thinking he could be a great player during the World Cup.
“It is the same for Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, even Luis Suarez. They already have a key status.
“Mbappe doesn’t have one yet. He just arrived. He’s one very promising player with great potential.
“Neymar has a status and we hope he can become this amazing player of this new generation. He has a status already but Mbappe doesn’t.
“He has however amazing potential. It’s magical, coming from nowhere. He’s from another planet.”
