Ligue 1 By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 30/05/2019

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has revealed the main difference between Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

"That's what you need to have - the ability to decide matches - and it can be confused with arrogance, but you have to have it if you want to become the best amongst the best.

"Neymar has a lot of heart and he is generous, but if he doesn't feel loved, he will not have the ideal environment to fully exploit his potential as he gets very involved and gives a lot of importance to everything.

"Mbappe is super focused on his profession, and he even counts the goals he scores in training.

"Sometimes I ask him: but which goals are you counting? Even those you score in the small goals?

"No, he only counts regular goals, whenever there is a goalkeeper, and with that attitude, we can see that he is a No.9.

"At [the age of] 20, he is already responsible and independent. He is really a good guy and he knows that he wants to become the best player in the world.”

Real Madrid is keen on signing the duo from the Ligue 1 Champions this summer.
