I'D HAVE LOVED TO PLAY WITH MBAPPÉ - BECKHAM
It's not often that a legend will make such remarks regarding a younger player still who are just getting into their prime, David Beckham has claimed it would have been a dream for him to share the pitch, and on the same team with Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé.
The young French forward has already reached 100 career goals at such a young age and has attracted loads of praises from both past and current players, and is widely considered to be a top generational talent.
Mbappé ended a barren run of games without finding the back of the net but finally broke the hoodoo in the French Champions' league game against Montpellier.
After the game, Beckham, who also donned the PSG shirt during his glittering playing career, heaped praises on Mbappé and added that had he featured alongside the youngster for PSG, both of them would have formed a fierce duo and taken the league by storm.
The former Manchester United, Real Madrid, and AC Milan midfielder drew the curtain on his career after the end of the 2012-13 season after enjoying a tremendous playing career. Beckham said with Mbappé's prolificacy and potency in front of goal, no midfielder would not want to play alongside him.
Beckham is not the only football legend who has heaped praises on Mbappé in the past, with a host of others including the likes of Brazilian legendary strikers Ronaldo Nazario and even Pele.
Mbappé is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and idolizes the Portuguese great. He has always publicized his love for the former Real Madrid man and in return, Ronaldo has also spoken highly of the young FIFA World Cup winner.
Should Mbappé continue at this pace, he would surely have more records to smash as he has a lot of time on his side to go as far as he can in his career.
