Words from one legend to another. Star striker Kylian Mbappé can win the Ballon d’Or in “any team”, Ronaldinho admitted to AFP on Sunday, but the Brazilian would like him to win it with Paris SG, “a big club. » “A great player like him can have the opportunity to win the Ballon d’Or in any team, but as I love PSG, I would like him to do it with PSG,” said the champion of the world 2002. “I hope he will win it. He’s a good friend, and a great player. I like his style of play,” he continued, interviewed by AFP on the sidelines of the Teqball World Championships in Bangkok (Thailand).

The captain of the French team, in search of the prestigious individual reward, one of the rare trophies which still eludes him, finished third this year, his best ranking. “Winning the big competitions will help him a lot,” said Ronaldinho, famous No.10 of PSG from 2001 to 2003, during two years which marked the supporters of the Parisian club. “PSG is a great club,” insisted the Brazilian, who has become an ambassador for teqball, a new sport that combines elements of football and table tennis.

Mbappé’s year 2024 promises to be busy, between a possible run to the final phase of the Champions League at club, and Euro-2024 with the Blues. The 24-year-old striker also has to manage an uncertain contractual situation, which could lead to his departure from Paris in June. Real Madrid, which has been courting him for several years, appears to be best placed to attract him.
