'Mbappe Is The Best Kid I've Seen Play Since Henry'

With many having already hailed France star Kylian Mbappe as one of the most talented wonderkids in recent history, an international striker has now said the Paris Saint-Germain forward is the best teenager he has seen since Thierry Henry.

Superstar Confused By FIFA Best Men's Snub

Mbappe took Europe by storm when he broke through at Monaco as a 16-year-old. While he already has two Ligue 1 titles and a 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy, among other pieces of silverware, to his name, many would argue that the striker still has his best years ahead.

The 19-year-old has been lauded as one of the most promising talents in football, praise his France teammate Olivier Giroud feels he deserves.  

"How can you not be (impressed by Mbappe)?" he told Le Parisien.

"He's mind-blowing at his age and with his maturity.

"You ask yourself where he's going to stop. I have never seen a kid as good at the same age. It's not been seen since Thierry Henry, perhaps."
