Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel was pleased with Kylian Mbappe following his four-goal performance in their 5-0 thrashing of Lyon
The 19-year-old forward stole the show on Sunday evening by scoring an incredible four goals in the space on 13 minutes to become the youngest player to score that many times in one game in the same amount of time.
Aside from that, Mbappe also became the fastest player to net a quadruple in Ligue 1 for 45 years.
“He did not have much luck against [Red Star] Belgrade [in the 6-1 Champions League rout of the Serbian champions]. He has shown a great mentality in training these past two days,” said Tuchel, according to Goal.
“[Against Lyon] he worked a lot tactically for the team and defensively sacrificed himself. He received his award with his four goals and he could have scored five, six or seven!
“I’m very satisfied because he has not lost confidence, he has been magnificent. With Neymar, they were dangerous all the time.”
Neymar scored the opening goal for PSG, who will next face Amiens SC at the Parc Des Princes on October 20 in the Ligue 1.
What a way to head into the international break! 👊 #PSGOL
