Paris Saint-Germain striker and French national team star Kylian Mbappe said he sometimes tells himself inside him that he is better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as a self-motivating trick.
Mbappe spoke about the way he handled himself and managed his career, while believing that it was crucial to have some selfishness as a player if you had plans to reach the highest level in the game.
About that, Mbappe said in an interview with RMC: “The ego? Of course, this is important because when you are in a bad situation no one else will push you, and that will be your mission alone, and you have to convince yourself that you are able to bring down the mountains. “
He added, “People do not understand ego but when you are not well, no one will come to your house to tell you that you can do it and try to take your hand, you alone and your mindset. Just, you are alone and you have to convince yourself that you are capable of doing great things.”
He continued: “Every time I go to the field, I always tell myself that I am the best, and yet I played in stadiums where Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were, they are two better players than me, they have done a billion more things than me in the game, but in my head, I say to myself.” Always I am the best. “
And Abizaid: “It happens because in this way you do not give yourself limits and try to do your best, and of course, sometimes people do not understand because I think there may also be this barrier that was created with respect to this point.”
He stressed: “For us, the ego is just not giving a friend a penalty kick for you to score, and getting a better salary from the player of the opposing team in order to become the most money-oriented among your colleagues and competitors, but for me it is not just that.”
The French international has scored 30 goals in 36 games so far for Paris Saint-Germain in various competitions during the current season, while he has made another nine goals for his teammates.
