Many have compared PSG forward Kylian Mbappé to some of the world’s best players, but who would he choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo?
In a great quote from France Football, the 20-year-old says he would bench himself so both players could be in his team:
“If I had a choice between Messi and Ronaldo to play with me, I would sit on the bench and play both of them to be sure we would win.”
Hard to argue with that attitude!
Messi has been in spectacular form this season, netting a brace against Manchester United to fire Barcelona to the semifinals of the Champions League last night. Messi has thus far scored 45 goals in all competitions for Barcelona in the present campaign.
Ronaldo, on the other hand, saw his Juventus side crash out of Europe’s elite competition after succumbing to a 2–1 defeat at the hands of Ajax in the second leg of their quarterfinal fixture on Tuesday night. The Dutch outfit secured a 3–2 aggregate win to book their place in the semifinals of the Champions League.
What about you? Who would you choose?
