Though he sat out PSG’s Ligue 1 clash with Rennes due to suspension, the weekend still remained a special one for Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe received a very special gift from Brazilian legend Pele who is arguably the greatest footballer the world has ever seen.
The 19-year-old striker displayed his present on social media, proudly holding the signed Santos jersey aloft with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
The hand-written message on the shirt reads: “For Mbappe, from your friend, Pele”.
In return, Mbappe said:
“Thanks for this amazing gift, King”.
Mbappe is serving a three-match domestic ban after being shown the first red card of his career against Nimes earlier this month, but is due to return to action after PSG’s midweek game against Reims on 26 September.
