L’Equipe hail Victor Lindelof and new boy Alex Telles as the star men who helped Manchester United make PSG ‘unrecognisable’ in their infamously tough player ratings – while Neymar and Kylian Mbappe get just FOUR out of 10
- Manchester United secured a late win over PSG in Champions League opener
- L’Equipe praised the displays of United defenders Alex Telles and Victor Lindelof
- But the French outlet were not impressed with superstars Neymar and Mbappe
French outlet L’Equipe have sung the praises of Manchester United stars Victor Lindelof and Alex Telles as they helped down PSG 2-1 in their Champions League opener on Tuesday night.
Marcus Rashford’s late winner made it a perfect start to the Red Devils’ European campaign, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men put in a solid defensive dispay to keep the French giants’ top stars quiet.
L’Equipe, who are known for giving harsh player ratings, gave Swedish centre-back Lindelof a seven out of ten, the highest score out of all eleven players on the pitch, while new arrival Telles was awarded the same.
But they were damning about some of the performances of the hosts, who were made to look ‘unrecognisable’ by United.
Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were expected to run riot against the struggling Premier League side, but both were shackled throughout and both duly scored a four.
