Kylian Mbappe admits that he is relishing the opportunity to play at Anfield on Tuesday and claims that PSG are “ready” for Liverpool.
The France star will take on the Reds in their Champions League Group C clash in a confident mood after claiming World Cup glory this summer.
And ahead of the game, he told Gazzetta Dello Sport: “Playing on Tuesday at Anfield against a big European club is the ideal way to debut the new kit.
“Of course Liverpool is one of our main rivals, but I have good feelings about it. I think we’re ready to do something big and positive.
“Our group is complicated, but this is the nature of the champions who want to win it because it is the most prestigious trophy in Europe.
“Against Napoli it will be tough, Ancelotti makes his team play well with a certain philosophy and high pressing. Also in Napoli their fans are spectacular.
“My memories from there aren’t really pleasant. In a friendly in 2016 with Monaco we lost 5-0 to Napoli, I know exactly what I’m talking about. If we fall asleep on the pitch they are certainly not waking us up. If we want to win, we must give our best.”
Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, has mocked Gary Neville’s suggestion that Liverpool should focus on the Premier League rather than the Champions League. Read the full story here…
