Mbappe Reacts To Liverpool Star Stealing His Celebration

With Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe making the "folded arms" celebration his own in recent seasons, he has now reacted to a certain Liverpool star copying his famous stance after scoring recently.

Reports: Barca Respond To Messi Transfer Suggestion

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has come on in leaps and bounds since breaking through at Liverpool, having been at the forefront of some masterful team performances under Jurgen Klopp.

Individually, the 21-year-old is already famous for his sharp thinking at a corner kick in the Reds' 4-0 second-leg victory over FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals last season, while his performance against Leicester City late last year earned him even more plaudits.

In a 4-0 away win over the Foxes at the King Power Stadium, Alexander-Arnold assisted twice and capped an incredible display with a fantastic goal, before running to the away section and folding his arms the way Mbappe does after almost every strike.

Asked about the England international stealing his celebration, Mbappe admitted to feeling a sense of pride.  

"Yeah, I saw! I'm proud," he told BBC Sport.

"This guy is amazing."

The France striker, who has been linked with Liverpool, then went on to praise what he has seen from the Reds so far this season.

"What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing," he added.

"They're like a machine, they've found a rhythm and are like 'we play again, we play again'.

"They've lost zero games. When you watch you think everything's easy, but that's not easy. The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.

"Now, the problem is that everybody watches Liverpool, and everybody watches what we can do against them, so now they have to show they are strong again, but it's a very good team with a very good manager."

Mbappe has also been linked with a switch to Spanish giants Real Madrid, but has insisted he is only focused on the current campaign with PSG.
