Kylian Mbappé has indicated that he has no problem with the greatest players on the planet, such as Messi and Ronaldo.
Those who still doubted the self-confidence that drives Kylian Mbappé can now be sure that Bondy’s prodigy does not set any barrier. Even facing the greatest of this game, he does not experience any complex. On the contrary, he convinces himself that he is above it, regardless of the talent and the track record that separates him from them.
In an interview with RMC Sport, which will be broadcast on Saturday, the PSG striker said that the time when he admired others was over and that today he has nothing to envy to Messi or Cristiano. Ronaldo. “Every time I enter a field, I always tell myself that I am the best and yet I have played on fields where there was Messi and Cristiano (Ronaldo), he proclaimed. They’re better players than me, they’ve done a billion more things than me. But in my head I always tell myself that I am the best because that way you don’t give yourself limits and you try to give the best of yourself ”.
This way of reasoning can earn him a lot of external criticism, but the person concerned does not worry: “Of course, sometimes people don’t understand because I think there may also be this barrier that is created in relation to this subject, where we do not really explain what it is. ‘ego’.
“When you’re in the rough, no one will come and push you”
Continuing on the theme of the ego, Mbappé said that it is imperative to have it to succeed in the profession: “For people, the ego is just not giving a friend a penalty, having a better salary than the player of the rival team. It’s not just that, it’s also in the preparation. It’s something personal, surpassing oneself is way beyond this superficial thing of saying ‘me I, me I’. But I think there is quite a bit to be said about it. “
Finally, the international tricolor also clarified that when you are in the rough it is thanks to your ego that you manage to get out: “Of course it’s important because when you’re in the rough, no one other than yourself is going to push you. And you have to convince yourself that you are capable of toppling mountains. People aren’t going to push you. do not understand the ego but when you are not well, there is no one who will come to your house to tell you that you are able to do that. It is only you and your “mindset” (state of mind). ‘spirit). It’s only you. You have to convince yourself that you are capable of doing great things. “
A theory that he is certainly putting into practice since he is currently going through a small slump. The former Monegasque has chained several disappointing matches with the Blues, and it has earned him critical external support. Critics to which he has tasted moderately and he did not hesitate to let it know.
