PSG's Kylian Mbappe channels inner Pele after 100th training-ground goal

Craig Burley says Kylian Mbappe is the one player who can rival the world's two best players after his big night for PSG at Manchester United.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe is known for his competitive streak, but the France international took that to a whole new level after hitting his 100th training-session goal in the buildup to Sunday's Ligue 1 clash away at Saint-Etienne.

Just days after he scored PSG's second goal in their impressive 2-0 win away at Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie, Mbappe was presented with a novelty shirt to celebrate his training feat.

The 20-year-old leads Ligue 1 for goals this season with 18 in 17 appearances. He also has five assists, which is already a career-best tally in Le Championnat.

The legendary Pele famously used to keep count of his goals in training, and this is the latest in a line of similarities between the Brazilian and Mbappe.

Pele has been quick to voice his approval of the French prodigy's mature habits in the past, and this will no doubt delight him further.
