After his feat against Barça, Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé would seriously apply for the Ballon d’Or according to Jean-Pierre Papin.
Great architect of the success of champions of France, this Tuesday, in Catalan lands (1-4) in the round of 16 first leg of Champions League, the tricolor world champion marked the spirits. This performance by the native of Bondy earned him the praise of a French football legend. “Its qualities cannot be discussed so much they are high,” Jean-Pierre Papin told Le Parisien. Kylian has to score goals regularly and once in a while he has to make a splash like in Barcelona. “
“Mbappé just needs to be regular”
Winner of the Ballon d’Or in 1991, the former French striker raised the possibility of seeing Kylian Mbappé win the prestigious individual title. “The only problem is that we are going to ask him the same performance all the time as at Camp Nou,” he continued. He has set the bar so high that we will have the same demands on him every time, but those who have played football know that it is not possible. He just needs to be consistent and he won’t be far this year from winning it. Yes, I can see it as a Ballon d’Or in 2021. “
