´I remain very calm´ – Mbappe staying grounded despite reported interest

20 March 2017 03:13

Monaco star Kylian Mbappe insists he is "very calm" about the reported interest in him, playing down suggestions his achievements are extraordinary.

The red-hot teenager continued his goalscoring form with a brace in Monaco's 3-0 win over Caen in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The goals took his tally to 19 in all competitions this season, while he has netted 14 in his past 12 games.

But Mbappe, 18, said he was simply on a good run, dismissing claims what he was achieving was remarkable.

"I would not say that what I do is extraordinary. I would just say that I am able to do what I know best. I would not say it's extraordinary," he said.

"Extraordinary is a player who can score 60 goals. There are not a lot. Otherwise I think we would overuse the term.

"I would not say it's amazing but I'm on a good run."

His form has seen Mbappe linked with big-money moves to the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The French striker, however, said he was trying his best to remain grounded.

"Sorry, but I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm around this attention I get," Mbappe said.

"I get up in the morning and I go to practice like everyone else. I try to work to improve myself every day and I try to do on the pitch what I do during the training sessions.

"For now, it works well."
