Asked about his idols, Mbappe told Gazzetta dello Sport:

If you’re French, obviously you would have grown up with (Zinedine) Zidane as your idol.

After that, it was Cristiano Ronaldo, who I have been fortunate enough to have faced as a rival, at club level and with the national team.

I also love Brazilian players like Pelé, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo Nazario and Ricardo Kaka.

And to the young players who look up to me, I’d like to send them a message from someone who believed in their dream, always giving the best they had to give, trying to push their own limits to be able to make a mark in the sport.

It’s too late for me to carve out a career like Messi’s, I would have had to stay at Monaco.

Without taking anything away from Messi, now I have to draw on Cristiano’s career for inspiration.
