French International Kylian Mbappe thanked Neymar for helping him to adapt to life at Paris Saint-Germain after his big money move to Paris.
Mbappe joined PSG from Monaco in the summer on an initial loan deal leading to a €180million switch at the end of this season, with Neymar having swapped Barcelona for the Ligue 1 giants earlier in the month to become the world’s most expensive player.
The duo have been in sparkling form as PSG dazzling through their Champions’ League group stage, while Mbappe has scored 7 league goals and Neymar a further 11 to help Unai Emery’s men establish a nine-point lead in the French Ligue 1 table.
Mbappe, who celebrates his 19th birthday on Wednesday, credited Neymar with helping him to settle in at PSG.
“Neymar immediately took me under his wing and integrated me,” he told France Football.
“Since I cannot go out too much, I bring a lot of friends home, we play, we laugh, we think about something other than football.’’
“Becoming a good player so quickly made me miss a lot of the normal life of a normal teenager.”
But Mbappe, who has hit four goals in his last five PSG appearances, believes playing football cannot be compared to other jobs.
