Kylian Mbappe says Pogba is obsessed with Manchester United star

Kylian Mbappe says Pogba is obsessed with Manchester United star

Kylian Mbappe has insisted that PSG's defenders will have to be on their best form in order to contain the dangers posed by a Manchester United star that Paul Pogba cannot stop talking about.

United and PSG are set to face each other in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, and the 21-year-old PSG forward was full of praise for Pogba and the star that his countryman is obsessed with.

That star is Marcus Rashford, with the English forward scoring the vital last-minute penalty the last time the two sides met two seasons ago, leading to a historic comeback.

Speaking on Rashford, Mbappe said that "He's one of the most dangerous forward players in England".

He also added that "Paul Pogba has spoken about how special he is and he doesn't talk about players in such a way often."

"When you take a penalty in that situation, how much practice you have put on the training ground doesn't matter. It's about confidence and he's a player who plays with so much confidence."

Both United and PSG will be with depleted sides, with United being without captain Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Mason Greenwood and former PSG star Edinson Cavani, whilst PSG will be without Mauro Icardi, Juan Bernat, Thilo Kehrer, with Leandro Paredes also being a doubt.

Speaking on United's absences, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that "We're a little bit depleted but we have got more than enough players," adding that "We hope the players won't be away for too long."
