‘Mbappe Is More Valuable Than Ronaldo & Messi’- Jose Mourinho Says
Former Chelsea and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said Kylian Mbappe’s age and “incredible” ability, makes him more valuable than even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe has lifted the World Cup, won Ligue 1 twice, scored 55 top-flight goals and been voted fourth in the Ballon d’Or, all before his 21st birthday.
Mourinho feels his youth gives him more value, when compared to Barcelona captain Messi, 31, and Juventus talisman Ronaldo, 34.
“For a player like Mbappe, when you speak about the future, you don’t need to say what he’s going to be like in five years’ time, in 10 years’ time.
“Just focus on now. He’s absolutely incredible.
“I think going by his age and [and considering] the age of Cristiano, of Messi, [both] over 30, Neymar is 27… when you go to the market level and age is also a factor, I think he’s the most valuable player in the world.
“In a hypothetical transfer, he’s the most expensive player in football now.
“In terms of his qualities, [he is] unbelievable. One word is enough. It means everything,” Mourinho told beIN Sports.
