Kylian Mbappé has his view on PSG and the quality of Ligue 1
Speaking ahead of the league clash against his former club Monaco, the French star explained how the club's fans push the team to their limits.
Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé was interviewed by the official club website and in it there was plenty ground covered.
The chat came ahead of Sunday's Ligue 1 clash with Monaco, and the French international acknowledged that, despite the extraordinary quality of the PSG squad, the games are tough.
Mbappé on the strength of Ligue 1
"It's tough, very tough, and very physical! There is an incredible intensity, the players are really ready to get stuck in, to make strong tackles, it's not easy. I think that this year, there is some top football too, I think it's more pleasing on the eye than in previous years. But it's a league that is reputed for being very physical and very tactical.
"So it's true that it requires some adaptation, especially for us. We have quite a few players who don't know the league. It means you need time to adapt, but I think that we are on the right path."

Mbappé on whether fans being back has helped PSG
"Oh definitely! We have already spoken about it, between the players, and in certain matches that we lost at home last season, we know that it was also due to the fact that we didn't necessarily feel at home. We were at the Parc des Princes, but the stadium felt empty. It's true that there are matches where we said to ourselves that with our supporters, we would never have lost them. And that's true.
"I think they give us an extra push. They give us a lot of strength, they help us to go out and pick up results. They also push us to wake up at times when we start a match too passively. They are there to encourage us. We know that in those moments, there are people behind us, who expect a result. I think that the supporters bring us a lot and we are lucky to have them with us."

"It's different. First of all, it's a big match. A huge league match. And they are a big club, who know how to perform in big matches. Of course, for me, it's extra special. I played there for a long time and still have friends there. There is always that adrenalin that runs through your veins.
"But when you play for Paris Saint-Germain, there is no time to be sentimental. You need to win and I will do all that I can to help my team to do so."
