Champions League: Ancelotti Names ‘Best Player In European Competition’
Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has labelled Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe as the “best player in European competition”.
Mbappe netted the winning goal late in the game, as PSG beat Los Blancos 1-0 in the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday.
The France forward is widely expected to swap Paris for Madrid in the summer when his contract expires, but still put in a fine performance for the Ligue 1 side in the first leg of the tie.
Mbappe is the best player in European football,” Ancelotti said.
On why they lost, Ancelotti added: “”We couldn’t get out with the ball and we misplaced a lot of passes because of their high press.
“They did that well and put us under difficulty in that sense.”
