Kylian Mbappe has dismissed the idea that Paris Saint-Germain is all about the fantastic four of Neymar, Icardi, Di Maria and of course Mbappe.

Thomas Tuchel and PSG are playing perhaps one of the most exciting attacking formations ever. His side line up in what has been deemed a 4-2-4 lineup.

Much has been made about his phenomenal strike force. Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Maria, and Mauro Icardi.

They have been labeled the fantastic four.

However, Mbappe is unhappy with all the hype. The French World Cup winner wants the focus to be on the team.

He spoke to French TV station Canal+ after another outstanding performance by the quartet against AS Monaco.

Mbappe is adamant that the team effort is the most significant factor in the club’s success.

He said:

“I think above all that we are talking a bit too much about us playing with four attackers.”

“I feel like we are playing with four attackers in a five-a-side team. But we are playing with 11 men.”

“We know that we have very good players, but this whole ‘Fantastic Four’ thing, all that, it is not our thing.

“We want to help the team to win, we want to win trophies and we leave superlatives used to describe us to someone else.”

Regardless there is no denying the performances are supported by some amazing stats.
