Kylian Mbappe, of Paris Saint-Germain, has sent a message to Lionel Messi, his teammate.
Mbappe said it is an honour for him to play with Messi, who he described as a unique player.
The World Cup winner for France also stated that the Argentine captain taught him a lot, and that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner assisted him in his development.
In an interview with RMC Sport, Mbappe said, “Seeing him every day, to see what he can do. He can improve my game because he is a unique player.
“I have the chance to play with him. It is an honor. I always said that I never thought I could play with Messi, but today I do, I play with him.”
