Paris Saint-Germain forward Mauro Icardi has praised both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The Argentinian says it is a ‘dream’ to play alongside such gifted players in the Parisian’s attack as Icardi also says that Neymar’s professionalism is exemplary and that the media have the wrong image of the 28-year-old.

“People may see it differently from the outside, but the reality is completely different,” Icardi told France Football. “We all know very well what kind of footballer Neymar is, and when you really know the man, you can only get along with him because he’s someone very different from the media reports.”

“He’s a team-mate who doesn’t hesitate to make sure that others feel good”, the former Internazionale striker added. “This is the state of mind we need. Great players are the first to set an example. He’s a guy who’s always happy and gets along really well with everyone. He has humility.”

“It’s important to be yourself because, in the end, we’re like a big family that spends almost every day together. His good humour makes us feel good every day. Everything I told you about Ney also applies to Mbappe. He’s a guy who is still young but has already achieved great things. He is extremely mature for his age. His behaviour also contributes to the good atmosphere there is within the group.”
