Pochettino hails Mbappe as ‘a gift for PSG’ after his Reims brace

Mon 30 August 2021 | 3:38

Being strongly linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid this season, the French striker stole the headlines with a brace against Reims as his manager is ‘happy to have him’ at PSG.

With goals in the 16th and 63rd

 minute of PSG’s Ligue 1 clash at Reims, Kylian Mbappe’s brace sealed 

a 2-0 victory for Reims

 as they head the international break.

Mauricio Pochettino told his post-match interview with 

Amazon Prime

“He is our player. But you know the business, it's full of rumours. Our president and our director are very clear. He is here with us and we are happy with him. He is an important player, and it is a gift to have him with us.”

Amid strong links with a big-money move to Madrid

, these can be Mbappe’s final goals for the Parisians as the transfer deadline gets closer.

PSG has rejected both of Real Madrid's bids for the 22-year-old, however, given Mbappe is entering the final year of his contract with the Parisians, uncertainty remains over Mbappe's future.

 

Marquinhos, 

who made his first start of the season

, added hailing the Frenchman’s mark: 

“We don't even try to ask him about his future. He has his goals, but if we think about ourselves, we want him to stay. And if he stays, he will help us a lot. 

“Our attack is magic, but he does not make us forget the others. It is important to have an efficient team. The season is long.”

 

Similarly, Marco Verratti said: 

“Of course I want him to stay. We like to play with the strongest. We didn't discover Kylian today. He has been scoring a lot of goals for a few years. He is a phenomenon, we are very happy with him.”

PSG will take on Clermont at home

 when Ligue 1 resumes after the international break. Reims, meanwhile, head on the road to take on Rennes.
