Mbappe: Ronaldo No Longer My Idol

Kylian Mbappe: Cristiano Ronaldo No Longer My Idol

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 28, 2017 10:59 AM @KurtLaduma

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe has insisted that although Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo was his idol when he was younger, he will not be looking up to him when the French giants play Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.

8 Midfielders Linked With Man Utd

PSG will go up against Los Blancos in the first knockout round of the UCL in February, a fixture that has many drooling.

The match will also see Mbappe compete against his childhood idol Ronaldo, although he has now insisted there will be no time to be star-struck when the two teams meet in Europe's biggest club competition.

"He is a hero from my childhood and it was amazing to meet him when I visited Valdebebas," Mbappe told Marca.

"But I am a competitor and a person who is very competitive, and all I want to do is win, win, win. So it doesn't really matter who is in front of us, we want to win.

"I admired him when I was younger, but that ended. Now I go to the Bernabeu to play and to win.

"You learn from them, of course. From someone who has won five Ballons d'Or, you can learn a lot. He's a great player, but I have those here too.

"Neymar is here and I think he is very similar and is at practically the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I learn from (Edinson) Cavani as a goalscorer too."

Mbappe has played 23 games for Les Parisiens so far this season, scoring 12 goals and assisting a further 11 strikes.

I came to vuka to hel me get my bofriend back I caught him cheating on me and he left me,I naturally was angry but forgave him we worked it out but he vuka put him and I didn’t believe it but it took 7 days I counted and showed up at my job on a Friday as I was leaving work he was very apologetic and told me how much he loved me and begged me to take him back.I called Jay to tell him but it was late and Jay called me back the next day to hear the story he told me that this was natural and expected.It felt weird but I went with it and so far we have been doing great.I want to make things clear and that’s it felt weird cause my bofriend never acted like this before and I know it was because of the spl that’s why am here to thank vuka ”Contact vuka the Great Healer now for your relationship and problems, financial problems i.e win lotto,get promoted/permanent@work,start/ boost your busis,win tenders,win court cases, or whatsapp her your problem now””on zero,,six,,one,,seven,,eight,, seven,,four,,six,,four,,eig

Whether he likes it or not CR7 grew up only thinking about him being the best n now he's still breaking records n he broke a lot of records n Mbappe should shut up n do the talking on pitch
