Author of a hat-trick in the victory of Paris Saint-Germain 1-4 at Camp Nou this Tuesday in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League, Kylian Mbappé, a 22-year-old Parisian striker once again put the world of football at his feet. Near BT Sport where he officiates as a consultant, Rio Ferdinand, former Manchester United player (2002-2014), returned to the performance of the international tricolor and believes that he is the relief of Lionel Messi, current striker of the aged Catalan club 33-year-old, as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, 36-year-old Juventus scorer.
Ferdinand «It’s up to everyone to catch up now ”
“Mbappé is alone, he is alone among the young players. People forget that he’s 22 years old, that he won the World Cup, that he played in the French championship, that he was huge in the Champions League. I have the impression that he is the one who will take the throne, the crown, and that he is alone at the moment. It’s up to everyone to catch up now. This guy is going to take the throne from Messi and Ronaldo when they’re done with him. “, words relayed by Foot Market.
After having been in trouble for a few months, Kylian Mbappé returned with a performance that confirms his status as a very great player. At only 22 years old, the international tricolor already has one of the best records and will certainly continue to expand over the seasons. If he manages to win the Champions League in the next two years, he will have one of the best records in the world since he will have managed to win the two most major trophies.
Mbappé knows it, he is the worthy successor of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, he works every day to continue to build up and confirm this status. By performing new performances as he did this Tuesday, there is no doubt that he will come closer and closer to the Ballon d’Or, but this kind of performance must not remain sporadic. The latter must have a very high requirement, in each game. But this performance also proves him that by remaining in his field and by playing with his qualities with a simple game, his performance is extraordinary and makes everyone agree.
