Golden Boy Winner 2017 Feels Flattered Equated With Thierry Henry, But ..
Kylian Mbappe was honored and honored himself compared with the legend of the French national team, Thierry Henry. But the Golden Boy 2017 winner also asks people not to see it as an impersonator of other people’s talents.
Mbappe introduced his name to the world when he performed stunningly with Monaco last season. He played the lead role when Leonardo Jardim’s side won the Ligue 1 title and reached the Champions League semifinals.
His great talent invites interest from leading clubs in Europe ahead of the 2017-18 season. Finally Mbappe dropped his choice to PSG, where he is a loan player but will be bought next season by Les Parisiens with a dowry worth 180 million Euros.
His game style and clear ability have been likened to former Arsenal superstar Henry. Although he is grateful for the praise, Golden Boy 2017 winner insists that he must improve much.
“It’s an honor for me. But it does not affect me, “he told Tuttosport.
“I want to be known as myself, not as a copy of someone else. I know people expect from me, but I am not a player who ticks every game, ”
“I have to work hard, my young age will never be an excuse.”
Mbappe has also made an impression with his international appearance with France. If he is able to avoid serious injury then a place in the World Cup next year he will get.
France will be one of the favorites to lift the most prestigious trophy in the world of international football, although Mbappe knows it will only happen with maturity.
“For France, the talents of the players are fine,” he said. “But you need to think about the chemistry of the team,”
“We are a team of young players and this allows us to grow and mature at the same time there is an important tournament,” he concluded. (Source: Goal)
