According to Kylian Mbappe, Messi and Ronaldo are miles ahead of any other player, and it would be unrealistic for one to compare himself to them.
The French international, who is regarded by many as the golden boy of this generation, and tipped to break all the records set by Messi and Ronaldo, says he has huge respect for the duo.
However, many would see Mbappe’s statements as humble, considering the level of success he has attained at such a young age. In addition to the number of goals and assists he records each season, Mbappe has won the World Cup, which neither Messi nor Ronaldo has won.
He is also credited for being the difference between the France and Argentina sides when they played at the 2018 World Cup. Interestingly, on the Argentine side that lost to France on the day was Messi.
Despite his successes, Mbappe has insisted that neither he nor any current player is anywhere near what Messi and Ronaldo have achieved, especially in the last decade.
Messi and Ronaldo have dominated the world of football, with both players winning 12 Ballon D’or awards amongst them.
