Adrien Rabiot says Kylian Mbappe can handle the pressure at Paris Saint-Germain

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot insists team-mate Kylian Mbappe is in no way struggling with the pressures of playing for one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
The 18-year-old joined Les Parisians in a £166m deal from Monaco in August and hit the ground running with four goals and five assists after 10 appearances in all competitions.
However, the France international has endured a slight dip in form, leading to claims he is not ready to cut it at the top level, although Rabiot has downplayed any such suggestions.
"Kylian is doing just fine," he told reporters. "During the training sessions he is good and fit, [but] I don't know what happens in his head.
"There have been a lot of changes since he arrived, both on the pitch and in the media, and he is so young. It could be difficult [for someone to cope with].
"But I think he is fine. He looks happy and if he is less good, it's only physically."
