Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe is refusing to rule out anything when it comes to the Ballon d’Or after scoring four goals in Paris Saint-Germain’s 5-0 win over Lyon
The 19-year-old continues to set the world alight with his scintillating displays after finding the net four times in the space of 13 minutes over the second half on Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash between PSG and Lyon.
Now Mbappe, who won the 2017 Golden Boy award and was named the Best Young Player at the World Cup, has set his sights on winning the biggest individual honour of them all in the Ballon d’Or.
“The Ballon d’Or? Why not? I don’t forbid anything,” said Mbappe on FourFourTwo.
“I will continue to progress, to play. If it comes, it comes and if it does not come, no problem.”
Mbappe finished in 7th-place in the 2017 Ballon d’Or.
The French forward also had a hand in PSG’s opening goal against Lyon after winning a penalty, which Neymar slotted home.
“He is a great player, everyone knows it,” Mbappe said of Neymar.
“He had a complicated period, and here he shows that he has passed over that. He is ready to win everything.”
Mbappe, who has managed 10 goals and four assists in just seven games across all competitions this season, felt that he could have scored even more goals on Sunday.
