Mbappe ends Messi-CR7 debate with cheeky response

Mbappe settles Messi-Ronaldo debate with cheeky response

April 17, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has said that he'd rather 'retire' to accommodate both Messi and Ronaldo in his team than choose between them when asked to. The 20-year-old sensation is on course to succeed the pair as a global superstar having shot to prominence in recent years.

Despite their respective ages of 30 and 34, both Lionel Messi have wowed football fans by impressing in the ongoing season. Momentarily, the former is on course to win a treble with Barcelona and has been hugely influential in the Blaugrana's campaign scoring 45 goals in 42 appearances across all competitions.

Ronaldo, whose Juventus side were cruelly eliminated by Ajax in the quarter-final of the Champions League has managed 26 goals in 38 games this season.

When asked to make the choice between Messi and Ronaldo for his team, Mbappe told France Football: "If I had the choice between Messi and Ronaldo for my team? I'd retire and take both of them, to be sure that we win!

"I could choose one, but it would likely be at the expense of the other. And you don't have the right to denigrate one of these two monsters. To choose one would be an insult to everything that the other has achieved.

"When I was younger, I had fun comparing them both. From one year to the next, I changed [who he preferred], even though I admit to having defended Ronaldo more often.

"But now I'm grown up I'm less certain. There are the Barca followers who prefer [Johan] Cruyff and Messi. And there are others who will say that Ronaldo is the greatest athlete that football has known and has won things wherever he went."
