Kylian spoke today, Sunday, during press statements on French channel TF1’s Telefoot program about scoring 300 goals in his career, saying: “It’s part of my league. There are some players who have scored 800 or 850 goals throughout my career.” “
He added: “300 goals is a figure that makes me very happy. I must continue and improve with Paris Saint-Germain and the national team.”
And the captain of the Rooster continued on the air of the RMC Sport TV channel: “This is a wonderful victory. We had a great desire to break the record, and we took the match very seriously.”
He added: “Reaching 300 goals is a new achievement for me, but it remains in second place because the team showed an exceptional collective performance. It’s just a step and I strive to constantly be decisive.”
About scoring a goal with a falling ball from a long distance, he explained, laughing: “I didn’t understand why he advanced 20-25 meters, and instinctively scored a goal. I think it’s a beautiful punishment for him.”
He continued: “I want to help my team both offensively and defensively. That’s the goal and I’m glad my teammates and coaches are asking me to do more.”
He stressed: “I want to continue to improve and help my team as best I can because even the biggest stars in football have to develop and change their game.”
Mbappe: Lionel Messi changed his style of play and I learned it from him
About Lionel he said: “I spent two seasons with Messi in… Parc des Princes“Leo changed his playing style and he was no longer the same player as he was at Barcelona, and that is what allowed him to continue to perform strongly and win.”
He emphasized: “Football is the one who dictates its time and rhythm, and if the player does not change and develop, football will turn into something else, and he himself will fall into the circle of oblivion.”
He concludes with a laugh: “Are my numbers special? Of course, my performance is very good (knock on wood) and I hope to continue with the same strength.”
