“Kylian Mbappe Better Than Thierry Henry At 19” – France Coach, Didier Deschamps
France Coach, Didier Deschamps believes that PSG star – Kylian Mbappe is better than Thierry Henry, when he was 19.
Mbappe who was a player to watch in the just concluded 2018 Russia World Cup, netted a lovely goal in the 4-2 final win against Croatia as France won the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He scored a total of four goals in the tournament including two important goals which secured a 4-3 win over Argentina in the quarter-finals.
“He knows he does things others don’t. He’s intelligent, he listens,” Deschamps told Le Parisien.
“I tell him when he does things well, but so many people say that.
“I’m also there to tell him what’s not good, even if that represents only five percent of his game. He corrects it and he listens.
“In 1998, David Trezeguet and Thierry Henry were his age but didn’t have the same role. Kylian is already grown up.
“I have played with very good players. I have also coached them. But him, it’s not only the quality. In terms of his age…With what he does now and what he should do in the future, I have always said, I’m very happy he’s French.”
