I was a football fan, a kid who loved football and when you are a kid from Paris there are only two stadiums - the Stade de France or the Parc de Princes - and that is what makes Paris so special.
When I was younger, there were players who gave me pleasure, and now I'm in that role.
When you are young, you admire the people you see on TV and you want to have the same gestures and the same attitudes and behave in the same way. It is a responsibility.
The greatest are an inspiration for all the kids who wake up early in the morning. Everyone watches you, is inspired by you and wants to be you. So you influence society. That's what being more than an athlete means. I want more kids to have that opportunity. I want everybody to start with the same chance.
I did not have the moments of so-called normal people during adolescence, like going out with friends, enjoying good times.
I am aware of the risk with all the media attention, all the glitz and glamour around football. And that was the only piece of advice my father gave me about my future - to stay myself. I know where I come from.
I was a dreamer when I was younger.
When my kids ask me, 'What did you do when you were 18?' I will tell them I was already at Paris Saint-Germain, that I was already a star and had to stay at home. I'll have my stories about home.
It's one of the disadvantages of succeeding early. I missed simple things like having a driver's license. I think everyone has one. For so many people, a license is an obligation, but it wasn't for me. Licenses are often synonymous with autonomy, but I had my autonomy so early that I've had drivers at my disposal. It was never a priority.
There is no bad time to laugh. I always joke, even five minutes before a game. It's not bad to stay a little immature.
I get up in the morning and I go to practice like everyone else.
Becoming a good player so quickly made me miss a lot of the normal life of a normal teenager.
We must always set the bar high, otherwise we do not progress.
I am happy, and I am living the life I always dreamed of.
You can't sit around and do nothing, you have to carry on.
Like the greats, you want to make your own story yourself, and not be a copy of another.
Individual trophies, I have quite a lot right now at home, but there will never be enough.
I have learned that the biggest stars and the greatest players are the most humble ones, the ones who respect people the most.
Helping people, moreover those coming from where you grew up, this is the most important. Not everyone can succeed, but at least you can to act for them.
When we make the effort for each other, it makes the difference.
I would like my celebrity to serve charity purposes, and to help people less well off.
Even if I am French, I have African roots. Helping African sport to develop is something that is very important to me. If I can use my reputation or other means to help, then I will.
I want to specify that I pay my own taxes in France, for all my income.
You always have to keep some lucidity.
I have always considered myself as a privileged person from a kind of elite among the lucky ones. So I think we should help all those who have not had the luck I have had, to use my fame to help.

I've always wanted to play with great players.
Those who talk about the sacrifices that they make throughout a career, I do not understand too much. For me, the real sacrifice would be getting up early in the morning to work.
It will not matter, the pressure I always had it, I was mediated early, I learned to handle it, I got used to it and it's part of my environment.
When you retire, people don't look at how good you became. They look at what you've won. We remember the winners.
In terms of evolution, I think that for me, it's all about titles. That's what you become world-renowned for, what you've won, and not just the growth you've had on the pitch.
I am a very, very lucky player, a privileged player.
As I always say - you have no feelings when you are on the pitch. You are there to play, to give the best for your team.
I have so much love for football, that I think is the reason why I seek refuge in training - I'm always guided by that desire to conquer, to win.

Playing with Neymar is something extraordinary.
So, individually, my goal is to score a lot of goals and help Neymar. He can help us raise a lot of trophies, so we have to take care of him.
People on the outside see a Neymar on the pitch, but that's not him. People see him doing tricks and dribbles and think that he is only trying to enjoy himself that he's selfish and only thinks about himself. But when you share a dressing room with him you realise that it's not the case.
is a superstar, much more of star than me.
I will do everything I can to help Neymar win the Ballon D’Or.
Neymar, I think he’s more of a superstar. More than me? Yes, of course. He’s worked many years in Barcelona to get that status.
On Karim Benzema:
, I didn't play with him. There is not many above him in the world. He will bring us a lot. He played at Madrid for 10 years, the pressure, he knows, he has the experience and the talent above all. The big players adapt. I'm sure he will adapt very quickly.
On Arsene Wenger:
Yes, I met with Arsene Wenger, who is a great coach. He has a great reputation here in France, he's well-respected and knows how to develop young players.
I dream of being managed by Arsene Wenger.
On Zinedine Zidane:
the player made me dream and still makes me dream when I watch videos of him. The coach is completely different, he is a great coach who has quickly achieved results and continues to develop.
On Edinson Cavani:
Edinson is the perfect team-mate for players like myself and Neymar. He is always available, he's very mobile, and he has an amazing shot on him. He's a natural goal-scorer, a true professional and a very good person as well. He's one of the best strikers in the world.
It's really incredible to be compared to a player like 'King Pele' who is the King of Football. But what I must think about is working hard and following my own pathway and not thinking about people who compare you to other players.
On Real Madrid:
is a club where you have to go when you are mature and at the top of your game.
On his rift with Olivier Giroud:
I spoke with Olivier Giroud. Everyone knows what happened," the PSG star said at a press conference. It is true that I was a little affected by it. But we are not going to make a big deal about it because we are here to represent France, that is the most important thing.What he said didn't bother me more than that, I'm a striker and I've had this feeling 365 times in a game.
I congratulated him in the locker room, he didn't say anything to me and then I heard from the press. He didn't say anything bad. It's more the fact of talking about it publicly, I would have preferred to let him come and be even more vocal in the locker room. But that's not a problem, these are small trifles. The team does not need us to get in the way.
Kylian Mbappe quotes bout Erling Haaland:
I'm happy for him, for what he’s doing. You do always compare yourself with the best in your sport, just as the baker compares himself with the best bakers around him," he said. "Who makes the best croissant, the best pain au chocolate?
I watch matches of other great players to see what they’re doing. 'I know how to do this, but can the other guy do it too?’ I think other players watch me, too. I think that pushes players to raise their game, just as Messi was good for Ronaldo and Ronaldo was good for Messi.

the best Kylian Mbappe quotes
about his successful international career with France national team and his club career so far at PSG.
With Paris Saint Germain

In Paris, I will be able to learn and improve while winning.
I just feel at Paris, I will have more chances compared to Madrid. I'm French and I choose a French team. People must be happy to keep a French player in the league.
For me, the Parc des Princes is special, I came here when I was young. It is somewhere I'd go to spend my pocket money.
I'm very happy with how things are going for me at Paris Saint-Germain.
What I want is to play, so you go to a club where you can do that.
There is only one club in the city, so the kids naturally head towards PSG.
Great players make history in their own country. I'm going to give everything I have got to make history with PSG.
I wanted to start, I thought I would, but I don’t make the choice “When I came in, I wanted to show the coach that he can’t do without me. After his brace as a substitute against Club Brugge (,” he told RMC.)
For me. PSG was the project that was going to allow me to develop. To learn while winning. And win right away. We only have one career and it goes quickly.
"I have never asked for a single player from the president or Leonardo. I am a simple football player.
Finishing top scorer three seasons in a row is an immense source of pride.

With France National team

When you end the European Championship the best goal-scorer in your own country, you show the world that you have the shoulders to handle the pressure.
Number 7 is a legendary number, many great players who have worn it. I hope I could do credit in the field with this number.
Club or national training is the same. We play as we train.

“I want the world cup. I want to sleep with it.
“I don’t have the words. Not even in my wildest dreams, and I am a big dreamer, would I have imagined this, there is still one more step to take, but we are proud of what we have done.
A World Cup and Euros double? Who doesn't dream about that? I am no exception. We always want to win and that would be an extraordinary achievement. Having the recognition of an entire country is important to us and we want to be successful.
