PSG’s Belgium right-back, Thomas Meunier is delighted on his good fortune in playing alongside some of the world’s best players-Kylian Mbappe.
PSG boasts one of the most talented squads in all of Europe with the like of Mbappe, Neymar and Cavani.
Particularly, Kylian Mbappe has been the club’s outstanding performer in recent times. Initially arriving from Monaco on loan in 2017, he completed a mouthwatering €145m move the following year.
The 21-year-old is arguably the hottest prospect in football right now. Big names such as Liverpool and Real Madrid are constantly being linked with his transfer.
Talking about the Frenchman, Thomas Meunier says he often gets dumbfounded by his teammates’ extraordinary skillset. The Belgium right-back also talks about his life at PSG. He says he is thrilled to have world-class players by his side.
“We’ve got a fairly young team, apart from a couple of old ones, it’s fairly homogenous. If I’ve been told I was going to play one day with players who could be Ballon d’Or winners, who are world-renowned and who are superstars, I would never have believed it. Even playing in the Champions League is a dream come true.”
“At PSG, I rub shoulders with players like Edinson Cavani, Julian Draxler, Thiago Silva and others. It’s just exceptional and a huge opportunity.”
Asked about Kylian Mbappe, Meunier was ecstatically explaining that the prodigy from Bondy has left him gobsmacked in training on more than one occasion.
“Kylian blows me away on a regular basis in training. He is really a cut above, more gifted that any footballer I’ve come across in my career. And I honestly hope he’ll be able to keep going all the way because he’s got a future ahead of him that will just be sensational.”
Thomas Meunier joined PSG form Club Brugge in 2016.
