Mbappé, the sad comparison with Cristiano Ronaldo


By: Manu Tournoux

If they are both stratospheric players, Kylian Mbappé and Cristiano Ronaldo share other points in common. Notably their very pronounced ego and a good dose of individualism.

In addition to the controversial expulsion of Beraldo, Sunday evening's “Classic” between Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain was marked by the early exit of Kylian Mbappé. From the 64th minute of play, Luis Enrique replaced his number 7 with the Portuguese Gonçalo Ramos.

A choice which, it seems, was not to the taste of the star of the capital club. When he left the field, his casual attitude reflected his discontent. In the wake of the Parisian victory, the native of Bondy posted a mysterious photo, without caption, on his Instagram account. In this photo, we see him from behind, captain's armband in his right hand, leaving the pitch in the pouring rain.

Mbappé/CR7, the unflattering comparison

A post which sparked a number of reactions, like Florian Gazan. “Shows his idol is really CR7… It looks like Cristiano after Real's victory in the Champions League in 2018 which eclipses the victory with his declaration on his future”the TV host wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

On May 26, 2018, when he had just won his fifth Champions League in Real Madrid's victory (3-1) against Liverpool, Cristiano Ronaldo took cover from his personal situation. At the end of this meeting, he was ambiguous in discussing his future within the Madrid club, suggesting that he intended to leave. A month and a half later, the Portuguese striker joined Juventus Turin.
