Kylian Mbappe is certainly a generational talent.
At just 22, the Paris Saint-Germain striker is one of the best players in the world and was once again in his brilliant record on Wednesday night.
Mbappe scored twice in PSG’s 3-2 away win against Bayern Munich, which put the French club in the pole position for a place in the Champions League semi-finals.
On the counter, Mbappe was unplayed and has now scored 32 goals and made 38 assists in his 38 games in all competitions this season.
His number is magnificent and it seems only a matter of time before a talented striker wins the Golden Ball.
But Mbappe is not just a world-class footballer capable of leaving opposing defenders behind and scoring goals from fun.
He is also very skilled in the art of preservation, which he proved in the French victory over Belgium in the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup.
Although he was only 19 at the time, Mbappe held a time-consuming masterclass in the final few minutes of the game.
His actions massively frustrated the Belgian players, and Vincent Kompany picked up the PSG from the floor to try to restart the game as quickly as possible.
Mbappe received a yellow card from the referee, but he did not care.
The series of that elite standard is simply to be admired.
Although, Mbappe’s teammate from PSG at the time, Thomas Meunier, certainly did not appreciate the waste of time, something that the Belgian defender said quite clearly in his interview after the match.
“In Paris, I rarely saw Kylian waste time the way he did towards the end against us,” he said, according to ESPN. “I’m sure he was ordered to do it. He’s super talented and a future superstar. I hope he’s not affected badly.
“If players like Zinedine Zidane or Ronaldo became Real Madrid legends at the time, it was because they played with pride and desire on the pitch. Zidane’s and Ronaldo’s goals were not to be cinematic or to do such things. They have always been rightly respected. because of their footballing ability and attitude.
“Over the years, as she matures, Kylian will likely realize that attitude is an important part of becoming a legend.”
S ** thousing will never make you the most popular player, but who cares when you’ve torn the sport the way Mbappe has had over the past few years?
After helping his country defeat Belgium, the Frenchman became the first teenager to score a goal in the World Cup final against Pele in Les Bleus ’4-2 win over Croatia.
Well played, Kylian.
