Kylian Mbappé was on target for his PSG side last night as they overcame Saint Étiene 6-1 at home in the French League Cup. Speaking to the media after the game the striker was asked for an update on his contract renewal talks with the Ligue 1 side. The player answered: "This is not the time to talk about that, this is the time to focus on football and my only concern is to  concentrate on the current season". Later on the matter of his contract came up and yet again the striker batted the question away stating: "I simply want to focus on football and concentrate on the season in hand. The club are in a stable situation and it's not the time to concentrate on those matters".

Mbappé was asked for his view on using the 4-4-2 system in the game against Saint Étienne and he replied: "I feel that there was a general feeling that these high quality players were making little effortIt is not a question of the system, even if three people have to make an effort, it's not enough. We have television, we all watch games and we may not be the best defenders in the world, but it worked better and we saw it in the game".
