​While Kylian Mbappe rises on the pedestal of potentially becoming a Ballon d'Or winner in the future, he definitely knows where to draw the line.


In a reported interview with Canal, as quoted by ​Sportbible, Mbappe was asked ​about Lionel Messi in which he reportedly replied that he could be better than the ​FC Barcelona legend in the next "three or four years."



The 19-year-old saw this above tweet and actually went ahead and denied the report while responded to it stating, "I never said that. Messi have all my respect and my admiration."




In one of his pre-Ballon d'Or interviews with ​Agence France-Presse, Mbappe spoke about both Messi and Ronaldo, calling both as the best in the world. The World Cup winner stated, "Nobody is doing better at the moment and we can't say it's the end of their era because it will only end when somebody else does better than them."


He concluded by stating, "Messi finished the best goalscorer in Europe; Ronaldo was the top scorer in the Champions League."
