19 year-old Mbappe has snubbed Lionel Messi from this year’s list of ballon d’or contenders. The French player snubbed Messi and placed himself alongside Cristiano Ronaldo on Ballon d’Or shortlist.
Keylian Mbappe is considered to be a future winner of the most prestigious Individual award in football, with it possible that 2018 could be the year in which he gets his hands on the prize.
Mbappe told France football when asked to pick out the likely winners: “For the favorites, I will say Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane… and me.”
The teenager added that he had full faith in those around him for club and country, never doubting that France were destined to secure a second World Cup title this summer.
