Mbappé: My goal is to win the Champions League with Saint-Germain

BERLIN: Kylian Mbappe, star of Paris Saint-Germain, aims to win the Champions League for the first time with his team, after renewing his contract with the club.

And after Saint-Germain finished the Champions League in the 2019/2020 season in second place and reached the semi-finals of the tournament in the 2020/2021 season, the team left the last league in advance, after failing to maintain her lead over Real Madrid with two clean goals in the round of 16. Mbappé could have left for Real Madrid, but he preferred to stay in Paris and wants to join the team that can win the first title of the club. Mbappé told BFM. TV: “Winning the Champions League with Saint-Germain is the main objective. This is what we want, but there is a way to go.” He added: “In the beginning we have to be winners locally, because in the last two seasons we have not been.” Mbappe also has personal achievements, as he is the second top scorer of the club in history with 171 goals, behind Edinson Cavani, who scored 200 goals. When asked about the possibility of beating Cavani, Mbappe, 23, confirmed: “It could happen, it would be fantastic.” Mbappe scored 28 goals in the French league in the 2021/22 season and no player in the five major European leagues could surpass him except Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, who scored 35 goals.
