The world now knows who Kylian Mbappe, France’s star player, wants to model his career after: either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.
Prior to the semi-final match against Morocco, the Paris Saint-Germain star was speaking in an interview. He said that it was too late for him to emulate Messi and that he would be content to follow Ronaldo instead.
Because it’s difficult to replicate Lionel Messi’s career, I want to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo’s. I’m too late to have a successful career like Messi.
Mbappe will be hoping to do what Messi and Ronaldo did for both club and country throughout their respective careers.
