Arsène Wenger on Neymar & Kylian Mbappé: “World football has been dominated by Ronaldo & Messi… next could be Neymar & Mbappé.”

Speaking to BeIN Sports in mid-week, Arsène Wenger discussed Kylian Mbappé and Neymar’s abilities and exploits.

“World football has been dominated in the last 10 years by Ronaldo and Messi. We could say that in the next 7 or 8 years it could be Neymar and Mbappé. PSG have the luck to have these players, when you have that quality of players, you sit in the dressing room, Mbappé might not have a big game but he will be in at least 3 situations a match where he will be close to score, that is for sure. He did that for France at the World Cup. If you find him behind, he’s the only player who goes in behind the defenders. Neymar comes to feet, but Mbappé can go in behind. So once he’s in front of you, you can never catch him… When you have world class players, I made over 300 transfers in my life. When you have a good player it is always difficult to keep him. PSG have enough financial power to keep them.”
