Mauricio Pochettino who is the coach of French champions Paris Saint-Germain has claimed that his player Kylian Mbappe is already among the best in the world considering his performances.
The France international has been superb this season for Paris Saint-Germain in all competitions and he recently scored three goals against Barcelona in the Champions League.
At his age, Kylian Mbappe has already won the World Cup and has also lifted the French League titles with his club.
According to the report on GOAL, Pochettino explained that Kylian Mbappe is the player who has the potential to take the football glory from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are arguably the best footballers on earth in the last 10 years considering their records and achievements.
“He has the potential, he lacks nothing but time. We cannot speed up the process. I think he’s already among the best in the world.
“It will take time for him to flesh out his CV, to get the recognition he deserves and will get.”
