Participating on the Team Dunga program on RMC Sport, former UEFA President Michel Platini and triple Ballon d’Or has praised French international Kylian Mbappé. He did not fail to say all the good he thinks of the second youngest scorer in the history of a World Cup final behind Pelé.
” In front, a young kid out of Monaco is impressive. He is very, very fast, we have seen him face Marseille where he will score alone. But it is not only that, it asks for the ball at the right moment, accelerates at the right moment, marks at the right moment. Similarities with Pelé? No. Pele, he won three World Cups. If Mbappé wins three World Cups with the French team, we can begin to compare. Pele, I did not know him sincerely, we did not see the games on television in my day. A few years ago, Gourcuff was compared to Zidane and it got a little bumpy. We will see, let it play and you will judge it in ten years. When I arrived in football, Henri Michel always said about me when I was young, “we’ll see at the end of his career”, “Says Michel Platini.
