"This year? You have to be realistic, I do not deserve it. There are players who have done more," Kylian Mbappe said.

"With PSG, we did not win all the national titles, in the Champions League, we disappointed.

"Sure, at the individual level, I did win a lot of trophies, but football is not played alone and must accept it.

The Real-Madrid-linked striker also declared that he is not in rush for bigger glory because he has the age in his favour.

"I still have time to win it, I'm in no hurry, it's not something that haunts me," the 20-year-old said.

Mbappe's PSG crashed out of the Champions League at the Round 16 with an embarrassing defeat to struggling English giants Manchester United.
