Cavani hails Mbappe for scoring on PSG debut

Share

Kylian Mbappe turned down the opportunity to play under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City before he left Monaco for Ligue 1 rivals Paris Saint-Germain.

Emmanuel Riviere equalized for Metz in the 36th minute to cancel out Cavani's opener and almost put the hosts in front early in the second half.

The turning point arrived in the 56th minute, when Metz defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto was shown a red card for his tough foul on Mbappe, who scored three minutes later. I managed to get the better of my marker and shot hard, it went in, it gave us some breathing space and we were able to play as we wanted afterwards.

Celtic are the next team to face Mbappe, Neymar and co when they travel to Glasgow on Tuesday night.

However, should PSG decide to take the option of signing Mbappe after the end of this season, they will have to pay a fee of around €180m (£166m) which will trump Dembele's price tag, reports the Guardian.

"A win, a goal and a good game, I have everything to make me satisfied", said Mbappe.

Mbappe was top of Arsenal's transfer list as the club prepares for life in the Europa League this season.

The away side's opener came when Cavani latched on to Neymar's exquisite 31st-minute pass, delivered nonchalantly with the outside of the boot, and rounded the goalkeeper, Eiji Kawashima. Nevertheless, it was a promising start to what looks set to be a stellar time at PSG for Mbappe.

Within a couple of minutes, the boos ringing out around the ground were deafening as Mbappe had pounced on a loose ball at the edge of the Metz box to drill into the corner.

Cavani secured his brace in the 75th minute as Lucas Moura completed the mauling with a neat finish. Elsewhere on Friday, Lille and Bordeaux had to settle on a goalless draw.
