Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have dominated football for over a decade. As we head into the 2020s we must quietly admit that the pair’s time at the top must be drawing to a close. Up step Kylian Mbappe, the heir apparent. The Frenchman has spoken to BBC Sport this week and Liverpool fans have been going wild after watching the Mbappe interview.
The PSG starlet has been the talk of the transfer market for years.
Before his move to the French capital every top club and their club dog were linked with a move for the fleet footed Frenchman.
He is undoubtedly the next leading light of the sport, he is already competing at the very top – the 21-year-old has scored 13 goals in 11 starts in the French Ligue 1 this campaign.
The youngster spoke highly of the Reds when he met the BBC, saying:
“What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing. They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again’.”
“They’ve lost zero games. When you watch you think everything’s easy but that’s not easy. The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.”
Liverpool fans have been drooling after the Mbappe interview surfaced.
One supporter feels it surmounted to a “come and get me” plea.

One fan insisted that Trent Alexander-Arnold’s celebration was a ploy.

At least not ahead of the legend that is Divock Origi.
Would he get his place on the bench ahead of Lord Divock though? #Mbappe2020
