Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe says he tells himself he is the best even when he's played against Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Mbappe has established himself as one of Europe's most lethal attackers over the past couple of seasons for both club and country.

The Frenchman, who is a World Cup winner, has already notched up 30 goals and nine assists in 37 appearances across all competitions this season.

"The ego? Of course, it's important because when you're in the rough, no one else is going to push you," Mbappe told RMC Sport. "And you have to convince yourself that you are capable of toppling mountains.

"People don't understand ego but when you are not well there is no one who will come to your house to tell you that you can do that. It's just you and your mindset. It's just you. You have to convince yourself that you are capable of doing great things.

"Every time I go on a pitch I always tell myself that I'm the best and yet I have played on grounds where there was Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"They are better players than me, they have done a billion more things than me. But, in my head, I always tell myself that I'm the best because that way you don't give yourself limits and you try to give your best."
