A viral clip of Kylian Mbappe during Paris Saint-Germain's thrashing of Dijon shows his elite mentality.
PSG beat Dijon 4-0 on Saturday to close the gap on league leaders Lille to just two points.
Mbappe starred as he scored a brace to help his team to victory and he showed another side of his game against Dijon.
In the tunnel before the second half, Mbappe can be seen talking to teammate Marquinhos as the players limber up.
The microphones picked up their conversation, revealing the 22-year-old told the PSG captain that they need to send a message to their title rivals.
He said: "Marqui, tell everyone that we need to keep applying ourselves! If we can score 5 or 6... it will be a message to the others (title contenders).
"Let's score 6 or 7!"
