PSG star Kylian Mbappe has revealed how he felt when he went to Chelsea for trials as an 11-year-old young boy.

Mbappe said his mates could not believe him when he told them that he went to Chelsea and met Didier Drogba.

“When I was 11 years old, I got to go to London for a few days to train with Chelsea’s youth team,” he said.

“I was so excited and shocked that I didn’t even want to tell my friends from the neighbourhood where I was going”

“When I came back home, my friends saw me and said, “Kylian, where were you last week? I said, ‘I was in London with Chelsea.’ They said, ‘Pfff, no it’s impossible.’ I said, ‘No, I swear, I even met Drogba.’ They said, ‘Pfff, you’re lying. Drogba doesn’t meet kids from Bondy. It is not possible!’

“I didn’t have a phone back then, so I asked my dad to give me his, and I showed them the pictures we took. That’s when they finally believed me. But the important thing was that they were not jealous. Not at all. They were just amazed. I will never forget what they said to me. I can still picture it, because we were actually in the changing room at AS Bondy, getting dressed for a match.

“They said, ‘Kylian, can you take us there with you?’ It was like I had gone to another planet. I said, ‘But the camp is over now. I’m sorry.’ They were looking down at the phone, laughing and shaking their heads. They said, ‘Wow. It’s like we are living this moment with you, Kylian.’ That’s how much it means to us. Going to these places, it’s like visiting another planet.”
