Kylian Mbappe has shared a picture of a signed Santos jersey from none other than Brazil icon Pele
The 19-year-old striker became the first teenager to score more than once at a World Cup since Pele himself back in Brazil’s final over Sweden in 1958.
Since then comparisons have been made between Mbappe and Pele, which the Paris Saint-Germain star has found to be “flattering”.
Now the young superstar has shared a picture of himself holding a signed Santos shirt from Pele with the Paris’ Eiffel Tower in the background.
“Thanks for this amazing gift, King,” Mbappe wrote on Twitter.
“You’re welcome, Kylian Mbappe. I think you have something special. I only have two pieces of advice – always stay humble and keep working hard. I am sure you will,” Pele replied.
