Kylian Mbappe is becoming one of the best in the world as the Frenchman is growing at Paris Saint-Germain week in and week out.

However, it’s well-known that Mbappe modeled his game after Cristiano Ronaldo.

He now talked about his role-models as he grew up.

“Well, I’ve had phases. To start as a child, my first was Zidane. If you’re a boy and you’re French, then your idol is Zidane.

Then Cristiano [Ronaldo], I’ve been lucky enough to face him, and then Brazilians for their way of playing,” Mbappe told COPE.

Well, there you have it. However, as things stand, the new generation will look up to Mbappe as the golden standard in football for the next decade.
