[Kylian Mbappe speaks about a comparison Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger made about him] 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

[Kylian Mbappe tells about his football idol Zinedine Zidane] At that time, I wasn’t switched on, I was a little bit in my own world, which is why I wanted to have the same haircut as him. Because when you love a player, you want to do everything like him. If he eats spinach, a kid is going to eat spinach even if he doesn’t like them. I wanted to do everything like him, and as I didn’t know what baldness was, I asked the hairdresser to cut a round bit out of my hair, he thought I was mad

[Kylian Mbappe reveals why he chose PSG over Real Madrid this summer] [I turned down Real Madrid] because PSG is the team of my city. [Joining Real] would have been like a Real Madrid-supporting kid from Madrid having the chance to play for his team and deciding to go somewhere else, to another country. I wanted to play for PSG and I am very happy right now about how things are going. There were a lot of rumours about the transfers and it’s true that we spoke, but I think that’s now in the past for me and for Real Madrid. I now play for PSG and I will defend these colours 100 per cent

[Kylian Mbappe talks about playing his part inhelping to develop football in Africa] It’s a topic which is close to my heart because even though I’m French I have African heritage and so for me helping the development of sport in Africa is close to my heart and if I can help African sport – through my fame or some other way – I’m happy to do it

[Kylian Mbappe revealed his anticipation of making World Cup debut in Russia] Of course, yes, I’m thinking about it. I’ve never played in one before so I’m already thinking about it. At the same time, I know that the most important thing at this time is my club. I’ve got so many objectives with my club that I’m thinking about the World Cup, but I can’t think about it every day because I’ve got PSG. But I admit that I’m looking forward to the World Cup and I’m impatient for it

[Mbappe was that fast, that good. He scored twice and won a penalty as Les Bleus stormed into the quarter-finals in Russia. After becoming the first teenager since Pele to net twice in a World Cup game, Mbappe was compared to Diego Maradona by Claudio Caniggia, while Jorge Valdano said he’ll ‘define football for the next decade’] It’s all flattering but let’s put things in perspective: Pele was in a different category

I have learned that the biggest stars and the greatest players are the most humble ones, the ones who respect people the most. There are three criteria: respect, humility and lucidity. My mother has always told me that to become a great football player, you must be before all a great man

[Kylian Mbappe on future ambitions] I still have a lot of things to do. I want to accomplish everything. With France, I still have the European Championship to win. I would also, why not, like to compete in the Olympics. Then, with PSG, we all know what [the Champions League] is missing there

[Kylian Mbappe talks about maintaining a sense of humour in football] 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. There is so much pressure in football that a little bit of ‘joie de vivre’, a little bit of fun doesn’t hurt in this environment

[Kylian Mbappe on France head coach Didier Deschamps] I think in particular that he selected me while I was not playing anymore - for a player, you don’t know how much it means. It’s a signal … a very strong signal! It is a mark of confidence that is worth all the money in the world. I know the coach trusts and believes in me. And once he did that, I felt I could die for him on the pitch ever since. If he told me to play in goal, I would

[Kylian Mbappe surprises attendees at the Ligue 1 awards ceremony in May when he admitted his future may not be at the Parc des Princes] I come to a turning point in my career. I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is maybe the moment to have more responsibility. I hope that can perhaps be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or maybe elsewhere with a new project

[Mbappe says I don’t deserve Ballon d’Or but still have time to win it] This year? You have to be realistic, I do not deserve it. There are players who have done more. With PSG, we did not win all the national titles, in the Champions League, we disappointed. Sure, at the individual level, I did win a lot of trophies, but football is not played alone and must accept it. I still have time to win it, I’m in no hurry, it’s not something that haunts me.

[Kylian Mbappe discusses his delight at having a French legend as national team coach] Didier Deschamp’s been fortunate enough and talented enough to win it as a player and a coach, which is a historic achievement. It was fantastic for me to have him as a role model. I love working with people whose names have gone down in history

[Kylian Mbappe about meeting his childhood hero Zinedine Zidane for the first time] I will never forget the moment that we arrived at the training centre from the airport. Zidane met us in the parking lot by his car, and it was a really nice car, of course. We said hello, and then he offered to drive me over to the field for training. He was pointing at the front seat, like, ‘Go on, get in.’ But I just froze and I asked, ‘Should I take off my shoes?’ Hahaha! I don’t know why I said that. But it was Zizou’s car!

[Kylian Mbappe says seeing Lassana Diarra and Gianluigi Buffon leave Paris Saint-Germain had a big effect on him] He was Uncle Lass, a big brother you could count on. He has often told me about his career, his clubs. He made mistakes, so he gave me advice. He helped me during complicated times. The highest level, he knows. He knows what he is talking about. He went to a lot of clubs all over the place. He left home very early, and alone. I always liked listening to the senior players. Buffon was also very important to me. But Lass didn’t just speak to me. He confided in those who were coming through. He also spent a lot of time, notably with Presnel Kimpembe and he always played this role even when he was not playing. And that is very important. He was not the one we have sometimes heard people talk about. Lassana was highly respected in the locker room. It did something to me to see him go. It also affected me to see Buffon go. Lass had told me about his plans, I knew what he wanted to do but I didn’t think he was going to work that hard. Because he works very hard. I am still in contact with him.
