The French star of Paris St Germain Kylian Mbappé has confirmed that he is hoping to win the Golden Ball award (Ballon d’Or) form the “France Football magazine” on July 3.
Mbappé said in an interview with the agency “France Presse,” that the current time will not witness the crowning of Argentine stars Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, after the closing of the vote for 200 journalists to choose the best player in football 2018.
The 19-year-old, crowned with the 2018 World Cup, wished to win the prestigious trophy, saying he had done everything he could to win the award, but admitted that in current time no one better than Messi and Ronaldo.
“I do not think either of them will win this year’s prize, but I’ve put all the ingredients that make me the winner,” Mbappé said, “I’ve done everything possible, Now is the voters time to do the right thing, I do not regret anything, and everything that happens will be a bonus to me, I think I have done better than last season. ”
Referring to a question that 2018 will see the end of the decade-long control of Messi and Ronaldo on the award, he said: “No, because it will be the end when they find someone better than them, no one can do better than them Now,”.
And added “I do not think either of them will win the Golden Ball this year, because this year saw the World Cup and the World Cup is on top, but if we look at the player’s condition in a clear state, we can not find any better yet. Messi crowned the best scorer in Europe, and Ronaldo crowned top scorer for the Champions League. ”
Mbappe: “Nobody is better (than Messi or CR7) and we can’t say it’s the end of an era because it will only end when somebody else does better. But I don’t think they’ll win the Ballon d’Or this year because it was a World Cup year, and the World Cup takes precedence.” [afp] pic.twitter.com/nxBZ4N12Uo
