Mbappe snubs idol Ronaldo, calls Messi the ‘world’s best player’

It appears as though the rivalry between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi extends even in Kylian Mbappe’s heart. While the Paris Saint-Germain forward has long been known to be an admirer of the Portuguese star, his recent comments about his new teammate have raised eyebrows. Many are wondering if Mbappe has now had a change of heart in favour of the Argentine.

Everyone in the football world has seen that viral photo of Mbappe posing from inside his childhood bedroom surrounded by photos and merchandise connected to the Manchester United star. It is also believed that Mbappe’s desire to join Real Madrid is partly influenced by Ronaldo’s successful spell with the club.

However, he found himself unexpectedly becoming teammates with Ronaldo’s biggest rival, Lionel Messi. The Argentine joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer after FC Barcelona failed to find a way to extend his contract owing to their precarious financial situation.
