Brazilian star Neymar believes that new club signing Kylian Mbappe is a great player and has the potential to improve even more. The 18-year-old who burst into the scene last season, made the move to the French capital on loan with the option to buy for a whooping £166m next year.
Mbappe for his part has already hit the ground running for his new club scoring in his first two games, including in his UEFA Champions League debut, however Neymar feels that the Frenchman can still improve and has a lot to offer in the near future.

PSG star Neymar admits Kylian Mbappe can get better
"It's always a pleasure to play with great players, even though he's young. For me, he's a great player and he has the potential to improve even more", Neymar said as quoted by UEFA.
The Brazilian himself has sparkled for the team since his £198m world record move from Barcelona and was on the scoresheet against Celtic last night, opening the scoring in the 19th minute. Neymar was pleased with the performance claiming that Celtic Park is a difficult place to travel to and that the win was very encouraging.

"Well, it's always very difficult to come here, but we put in a great display as a team. Congratulations to all my team-mates. Scoring five goals here certainly isn't easy", he added.
Paris Saint-Germain currently lead the Ligue 1 table with 15 points from five games and will next be seen in action on the 18th of September, when they host Lyon.
