'Kylian Mbappe can do better!' - PSG director Luis Campos urges France star to 'keep working' and take game to next level
- Mbappe broke PSG's scoring record on Saturday
- Backed to be at his best at 25
- PSG face Bayern Munich in Champions League next
WHAT HAPPENED? Mbappe bagged his 201st goal for Les Parisiens as the Ligue 1 leaders beat Nantes 4-2 on Saturday. After the game he was honoured with a trophy and celebratory festivities, but the club's de-facto sporting director urged the star not to get complacent and emphasised that Mbappe still has more to give in a PSG shirt.
WHAT THEY SAID: "I provoke him all the time because he can do better. I think that when he turns 25-26, that's when he's going to be at his best," Campos told Telefoot. "He needs to keep working and, as he does very well, with high standards."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Mbappe surpassed Edison Cavani in PSG's all-time top goalscoring charts, reaching 201 in 54 fewer games than the now-Valencia striker. He is still one behind Cavani in PSG's Ligue 1 scoring table, though, with 137 to Cavani's 138.
