In a recent interview with DAZN, Ronaldo Nazario gave an open but honest opinion as he comapres the qualities of Kylian Mbappe to his own. In his statement, he admitted that he sees the same qualities between himself and young athlete.
French and Paris Saint Germain striker Kylian Mbappe has been on the news lately with a move linking him to Real Madrid. However, the french club insist on keeping for till the end of his contract in 2022 with the hope of luring him into a new contract extension or perhaps risk him leaving on a free transfer.
In his comparison, Ronaldo Nazario pointed out that Mbappe shot to stardom at a very young age of 22-years and has won the World Cup and four Ligue 1 titles with a stunning goal record.
Going by his record it is not surprising why Spanish club Real Madrid offered the sum of €200 million to get the young athlete to the Santiago Bernabeu, but Paris Saint-Germain could not risk loosing the promising talent.
Apparently, the reason why Ronaldo thinks Mbappe is similar to him in style of play and record is not far fetched. At the age of 21 years in the 90s, Ronaldo had won a World Cup and FIFA’s World Player of the Year twice.
Ronaldo Compares the Qualities of Kylian Mbappe to his own
“Yes, he has similar attributes to me,” Ronaldo told DAZN about Mbappe as part of the ‘El Presidente’ series. “He has incredible qualities, with a remarkable technique that he executes at great speed.”
“He gets past defenders, he goes past goalkeepers… And, despite being very young, he’s already come a long way. I like Mbappe.”
No doubt Mbappe has yet lot to prove that he can be rated with the likes of Ronaldo, however, the the current quality of players in the PSG squad, he is likely to be up with more goals and titles as they team are top contenders for the Champions League and Ligue 1 title this season.
