Paris Saint Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has backed Edinson Cavani to be a success at Manchester United following his move to Old Trafford, but insists their friendship will be put on hold when both club’s face-off in the Champions League during the week.
PSG kick off their European campaign at home to the Red Devils on Tuesday night.
The French Champions will be looking for a revenge after being knocked out by the Red devils during 2018/2019 season.
Asked whether it will feel weird facing his former team-mate, PSG forward Mbappe told Telefoot: “Not at all, he is in a different team now, I wish him the best.
“We are going to play against him and try to beat him.”
Meanwhile, PSG record goalscorer Cavani is looking to a beautiful moment to make his debut against his former side next week.
“I am going to experience an exceptional moment, that nobody thought would happen,” he said.
“It will be an incredible thing, beautiful emotions.”
The Uruguay international added: “I had a lot of different opportunities, I was excited to play in the Premier League and even more so for Manchester United.
“I am very motivated because I always want to play as much as possible, work, train and give the best of myself.”
