, the French star has admitted that the 100 goal milestone has distracted him for the last couple of games.
"It's the legendary 100 mark. I've been thinking about it for two or three games and maybe that's why I hadn't scored. Maybe I thought about it too much," the 21-year-old told PSG TV.
"But I I tried to focus on the team, to help my partners as much as possible and they gave it back to me really well.
"They gave me this goal, there was no goalkeeper, I scored and I I'm very happy,"
The record has been reached by only four players and Mbappe is happy to have joined this elite group:
"I knew my statistics, yes. It had been a few matches that I wanted to score the 100th," Mbappe told Canal Plus.
"This one wasn't the hardest. It's a liberation, especially at a big club like this and all the great players who have been here. When I signed here, I never thought I'd score 100 goals so quickly. It was a long-term objective.
"Thank you to my team-mates and to the club for giving me confidence, whether in good times or bad. Thank you to everyone who works there.
"I think I can score even more, offer more assists. It will come with time. I'm feeling better and better and going through matches will allow me to be even better physically."
