Greizmann: Mbappe reminds me of Cristiano at Man Utd
Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has noted that Paris Saint Germain prodigy Kylian Mbappe reminds him of Cristiano Ronaldo back at Manchester United.
Mbappe has been in fine form scoring four goals in under 10 minutes in their last game against Olympic Lyon. Mbappe has also won the Best Young Player at the World Cup and scored in the finals against Croatia. The young French forward has had a year to remember winning the French Ligue 1 with PSG.
When asked of his comments on Mbappe, Griezmann replied, “Looking at Kylian, I see the Cristiano from Manchester. When Kylian will do what Cristiano did in Madrid, just solely think about winning, he will score 50 goals.”
Greizmann went on to add that winning the Ballon D’or would be a huge achievement, “For me it would be a dream. The nation – my nation – of France won the World Cup and in this team there must be the best player in the world. That’s what I think at least, that the prize should go to a French player.”
