Playing for Chelsea was a great deal in my career - Mbappe

Paris Saint-Germain's new forward, Kylian Mbappe, has uncovered that he was motivated to end up plainly an expert footballer, after a short stretch at Chelsea as an 11-year-old.

Mbappe played alongside Tammy Abraham and Jeremie Boga, right now both on loan at Swansea and Birmingham respectively, for the Blues' U-12 team.

"It was a wonderful experience," he revealed to The Telegraph.

"Chelsea was the first awesome club, the first big club, that I went to visit. So it was a genuine discovery for me.

"I was originating from my grassroots, novice club. It was a radical new world. Obviously I had a thought what an extraordinary football club would be like yet I was truly inspired by the working society and the mindset of needing to be better without stopping for even a minute.

"Also, going by this foundation helped me, really, with my improvement. I saw things diversely in light of the fact that up until the point when then I had only a French attitude and after that I could pick what was sure in different mindsets and construct my own."

Mbappe won against Charlton, before getting the chance to meet Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda, who were still at Stamford Bridge at the time.

He added: “An idea has been reinforced since I was a kid – not just because I went to Chelsea. I always thought: ‘I want to be there, I want to be one of those big players who is trying to give people fun out of the game’. And I have given everything to reach that objective. Now I am on the other side of the camera, on the other side of the TV. That’s the only difference.”
