Kylian Mbappe was at the centre of a glorious 1-0 victory over Real Madrid for PSG on Tuesday, adding the extra spice to a narrative that was already as hot as you could imagine.

With just seconds remaining in the game, Mbappe struck to put his current employers ahead against his would-be future employers, capping off a marvellous performance with the goal he absolutely deserved.

Understandably, his teammates were more than a little excited by what they had seen.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

"Kylian Mbappe, mamma mia. He's an alien. He's incredible. It's always a show with Kylian, on and off the pitch.

"Only he can decide whether he wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain or not - it's up to him. We enjoy Kylian every day."

Danilo Pereira

"Kylian Mbappe is not a player like the others, he proved that with his goal. For me, currently, he's the best in the world."

Mauricio Pochettino

"I'm running out of words to describe him. He's one of the best, it's clear.

"We hope that Mbappe will be with us for many years in Paris."

Carlo Ancelotti

"He's very good. He won them this match.

"Mbappe is unstoppable. We tried to control him, [Eder] Militao did very well. But Mbappe can always invent something and he's done exactly that in the last minute."
