A witness step? Author of a hat-trick at the Camp Nou this Tuesday on the occasion of the victory of Paris Saint-Germain against FC Barcelona (4-1) in the first leg of the second round of the Champions League, Kylian Mbappé (22 years, 6 matches and 5 goals in LoC this season) has shown for many that he now embodies more than Lionel Messi (33 years, 5 games and 4 goals in LoC this season), not only the future, but also the present of football. Ludovic Giuly, a former player for both clubs, believes, however, that we should be cautious about this.
“Take it easy and watch out for contempt. Mbappé will soon be France Football’s Ballon d’Or, as we know. But he still needs consistency. What Leo has done for fifteen years cannot be compared to a hat-trick, certainly sublime.” The same path, but it will have to be long, the Frenchman warned in the columns of the newspaper Le Parisien. Mbappé’s destiny is not to be a new Messi, but to become Mbappé. It is the succession of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, but don’t go too fast. Being great is to last. I am confident, but only time will tell its value. May I already win the Champions ”.
Former Flea teammate, Giuly doesn’t want to bury the six-time Ballon d’Or too quickly.
