Ancelotti praises ´dangerous´ Mbappe

15 October 2018 04:25

Napoli head coach Carlo Ancelotti lauded unique Paris Saint-Germain teenager Kylian Mbappe as a future superstar.

Mbappe is among the nominees for the Ballon d'Or, after winning the World Cup with France and helping PSG claim a treble last season.

The 19-year-old forward has enjoyed a fine start to the season, with eight Ligue 1 goals – including a stunning four-goal haul against Lyon – and two Champions League strikes.

PSG will host Italian side Napoli on matchday three in the Champions League and Ancelotti praised Mbappe ahead of the Paris showdown.

"Mbappe is a nice player, very fast; but there are a lot of fast players, the difference is he can be both fast and effective at the same time," Ancelotti.

"Whatever he does, he's very effective. He is a no-frills guy, a very direct player. And therefore, very dangerous.

"He is very young, he will definitely be a star in the next few years."

Napoli top Group C with four points from two games, a point ahead of French champions PSG.
