Mbappe added: "Every time I go on a pitch I always tell myself that I'm the best and yet I have played on grounds where there was Messi and Cristiano (Ronaldo).

"They are better players than me, they have does a billion more things than me. But in my head I always tell myself that I'm the best because that way you don't give yourself limits and you try to give your best.

"Of course, sometimes people do not understand because I think that there is perhaps also this barrier which is created in relation to this subject, where one does not really explain what the ego is.

"It's something personal, surpassing oneself, it's way beyond this superficial thing of saying 'me I, me I'. But I think there's quite a bit to be said about that."
