Mbappe has been key to PSG's success in recent seasons after his big-money move from Ligue 1 rivals AS Monaco in 2018.

While Mbappe is the talisman alongside Neymar, he is still one of the younger players in the squad and he revealed Lassan Diarra and Gianluigi Buffon's exits hurt.

"He was Uncle Lass, a big brother you could count on," Mbappe told L'Equipe.

" He has often told me about his career, his clubs. He made mistakes, so he gave me advice. He helped me during complicated times.

"The highest level, he knows. He knows what he is talking about. He went to a lot of clubs all over the place. He left home very early, and alone.

"I always liked listening to the senior players. Buffon was also very important to me.

"But Lass didn't just speak to me. He confided in those who were coming through. He also spent a lot of time, notably with Presnel Kimpembe and he always played this role even when he was not playing. And that is very important.

"He was not the one we have sometimes heard people talk about. Lassana was highly respected in the locker room.

"It did something to me to see him go. It also affected me to see Buffon go.

"Lass had told me about his plans, I knew what he wanted to do but I didn't think he was going to work that hard. Because he works very hard. I am still in contact with him."
