Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) fans on Twitter felt that Kylian Mbappe is more of a clutch player for their team than Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.
The French world champions have been rested for the Paris Ligue 1 clash against Nice on Saturday (1 October). The Argentine put the hosts ahead with a flawless free-kick from just outside the box.
However, Nice equalized early in the second half through Gaetan Laborde. Mbappe was introduced by Christophe Galtier in the second half. The Frenchman proved crucial as he scored the winner in the 83rd minute.
All the superstars of the PSG attacking trio have been in exceptional form this season. Neymar has scored 11 goals and provided eight assists in 12 games in all competitions so far this season.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored seven goals and provided eight assists in 12 games in all competitions this season. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winners, on the other hand, have scored 11 goals in 10 games so far this season.
However, fans have decided that Mbappe is more clutch than the other two as he is more important for the team to win. Some went a step further and called him the best player in the world right now.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter:
The Parisians have now accumulated 25 points from the first nine league games of the season. They are currently at the top of the league table, two points ahead of second-placed Marseille.
Former PSG star Blaise Matuidi tips Kylian Mbappe to carry on the legacy of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi
While Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been the top two players in the world for more than a decade, both players are in the wrong end of their 30s.
Former PSG star Blaise Matuidi tipped the Frenchman to carry on his legacy, as he recently said:
“Mbappe is one of the Ballon d’Or candidates, so he has a chance to win. Despite his young age, he has shown that he is an excellent footballer.
“His football is impressive. Mbappe has everything to win the Ballon d’Or this year or next. I think Mbappe is the heir to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.”
