Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has tipped Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund to become the next best players in the world.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner stated this last time at his unveiling as LiveScore’s Official Global Brand Ambassador.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who just transferred from Juventus to Manchester United this summer said he hopes he has created a legacy that will be emulated after he finally hangs up his boots.
However, when asked to single out one player he expects to see dominate on the global scale he named two, perhaps with an eye on the kind of rivalry he has enjoyed with Lionel Messi over the years.
“It is hard to choose just one player to say this one will be the best. But I think it is exciting to see this new generation of young players, like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé, who are coming through.”
“Some players can have one or two great seasons, the really great players are the ones that keep doing it season after season. That is not so easy to do. It takes a lot of hard work and a lot of commitment,” the Portuguese said.
Moreover, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have enjoyed what many see as one of the biggest rivalries in football, with the duo so far winning 11 Ballon d’Or awards between them.
But when it comes to who is the greatest among both, football fans, players, and pundits split as there seems no end to the GOAT debate between the two.
