Mbappe: “The only one who has impressed me as much as Pele is Zidane”

09 Apr 2019

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has never hidden his admiration for Pele, who he has always looked up to, but the 20-year-old has stated that he has a second idol: Zinedine Zidane.

The current Real Madrid boss attained legendary status with BordeauxJuventus and Los Blancos, as well as the French national team, so it should come as no surprise that the current star of Les Bleus admires Zidane.

“The only one who has impressed me as much as Pele is Zidane,” Mbappe told the French magazine France Football.

Zidane is a huge fan of the PSG superstar and even tried to sign him from Monaco during his first spell in charge of Real Madrid, but it would seem that a deal for Mbappe will have to wait until the summer of 2020 at least.
