Mbappe said: ‘Yeah, he’s good.’
Liverpool, who started in the same group as Paris Saint-Germain and Mbappe, won the Champions League by defeating Tottenham 2-0 in the final at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.
Mbappe’s PSG side, meanwhile, were knocked out in the second round by Manchester United, despite winning the first leg 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Mbappe recently fuelled speculation over his PSG future by asking for more responsibility
But Neymar could leave PSG, a move that would clear the way for Mbappe to be the main man
Mbappe’s long-term future with the French champions is under scrutiny after saying at an awards ceremony in France last month that he wants more responsibility at the club.
Both he and Neymar have been linked with moves away but in recent days, links between the Brazil striker and a return to Barcelona have grown.
Reports in Brazil have said Neymar could rejoin Barcelona for a fee of £90m with at least one of Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele heading the other way.
