Earlier today, famous Chelsea supporter Frank Khalid revealed on his official Twitter account what France international Kylian Mbappe said about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“I want to imitate Cristiano Ronaldo’s career because imitating Lionel Messi’s career is impossible,” says Kylian Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappé previously revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo was his idol, and a photo of the five-time world best player of the year was discovered in Mbappé’s room when he was 13 years old.
Despite not intending to imitate Lionel Messi, the Frenchman is said to be a big fan of Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
