Ronaldo Nazário praises Kylian Mbappé but warns PSG: “I played with the Galacticos and never won the Champions League”

As reported by LÉquipe, speaking in Italian sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, former Brazil and Real Madrid striker Ronaldo Nazário (44) praised Kylian Mbappé but also offered PSG a warning:

“[Mbappé] has characteristics similar to mine. He has incredible qualities. He has remarkable technique and he knows how to use it at high speed – he escapes defenders, dribbles past keepers… Although he is very young, he has already accomplished a lot. I like Mbappé, I support him.”

“It’s still too early to predict who will win [the Champions League], we will know more from the quarter-finals onwards. PSG are in pole position, but debates are one thing, the pitch is another, and there are many factors. I played at Real Madrid for almost five years in the ‘Galacticos’ team and I never won the Champions League. Winning is not a mathematical equation. This also applies to PSG.”
