Mbappe happy with dream start at PSG

Paris Saint-Germain's summer signing Kylian Mbappe is delighted with his dream start with the Parisians after arriving siwtching the white and red colours of Monaco for the red and blue of the capital club.

Mbappe found the net on his Paris Saint-Germain debut and Edinson Cavani and Neymar also scored as the league leaders left FC Metz still without a point after a 5-1 win on Friday.

The youngster in a post match reaction said: "I always wanted to play with great players, I have the opportunity today to play with the best in France and perhaps in Europe.

"I try to learn from their movements, and their professionalism. All I want is to play. I was very happy today. I've had a lot of fun." the Frenchman told Ligue 1's website

The 18-year-old again showed he has the maturity as well as the talent to handle anything and everything thrown at him. His link-up play with Neymar Jr and Cavani, and the almost instant understanding he has built with the pair, was remarkable, and can only bode very well indeed for the capital club.

Mbappe and his PSG team-mates can expect much stiffer resistance in Glasgow on Tuesday when they kick off their UEFA Champions League challenge against Celtic.
