Rio Ferdinand has revealed all on his chat with Mauricio Pochettino, who described Kylian Mbappe as a "genuine superstar”.
PSG manager Pochettino guided his side into semi-finals of the Champions League with a narrow victory on away goals over Bayern Munich, backing up the hammering of Barcelona in the previous round.
Mbappe has been the spearhead for this team, and is arguably considered as the best player in the world right now, having scored twice in the first leg against Bayern.
Ahead of the second leg, which ended 1-0 to the German side, Ferdinand sat down with his boss to discuss Mbappe’s success, and unveiled how Pochettino was understandably glowing of the 22-year-old.
"I asked (Mauricio) Pochettino about him,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
“I said 'what's it like working with a genuine superstar?' And he said straight away: 'It's the easiest player I've ever had to manage'.
“Because of how good he is, how he keeps himself physically, and just what he has to put himself out on the pitch. You see his numbers, for a kid, it's ridiculous what he's doing."
Pochettino also said that his ability to speak multiple languages helped make life even easier to manage Mbappe, as well as his unbelievable talent.
"It's so easy to work with him," Pochettino had told Ferdinand. "He's only 22 but so mature and in his mind it is just about working, playing and scoring goals.
"It's also easy to communicate because his Spanish is fantastic and his English is amazing. He's very easy to work with, very humble and a lovely guy.

"It's impossible not to love him, and on the pitch he is unbelievable with his talent. In 11 or 12 years as a coach he is maybe the easiest player I have managed."
PSG will either face Borussia Dortmund or Manchester City in the next leg which is currently being led by the English side 2-1.
