Since appearing on the big stage five years ago, Kylian Mbappe has been talked about as one of the players with the greatest potential to succeed Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, once the two greatest decide to leave the podium.
The young Frenchman also justified the epithet of a new miracle every season, for example, he scored 42 and scored 11 more goals, however, former French national team player Nicolas Anelka thinks that it will not be enough to put him in the same basket with Ronaldo and Messi, everything until he changes the environment.
"If he wants the biggest tribute, at some point he will have to leave Paris Saint-Germain. Whatever he does in Paris will be fine, but someone will always say, 'Okay, you were great in Paris Saint-Germain, but it was in "France.
" "The best leagues are in England and Spain. So you didn't compete with the best players," Anelka said in an interview with Athletic. If the information of the reputable L’Equipe is to be believed, Mbappe has already decided to take such a step, and after the expiration of his contract next season, he will leave Prince’s Park as a free agent.
"He will have to decide. If he wants to win the Golden Ball, to make an echo-like Ronaldo and Messi, he will have to compete with the best. You can't constantly compete with the best while you're in Paris Saint-Germain."
Anelka emphasizes that with the previous statement he does not want to underestimate League 1, but that the French championship simply does not belong to the rank of the best. "The French league is not easy, don't get me wrong, but the hardest league is in England.
So if you want to be one of the best, then do what you do in Paris, but with Chelsea, United, Arsenal, City, or Liverpool." "Or go to Spain, Real or Barcelona. Or maybe Italy. Then we can talk about global influence, "Anelka concludes.
And indeed many share the opinion with Anelka. But Mbappe had a plan when he came to PSG to win the Champions League and from the playing staff, it looked like PSG could accomplish something like that. Yet one is desires and the other is reality.
PSG is obviously missing something, whether it’s an experience, a mentality, or something third, we still don’t know, but Mbappe and Neymar are already losing patience and it wouldn’t be weird if they considered other career options.
