However, it is unlikely that there is too much argument that the player who is always sitting on this particular tree is Pele.
Say what you want about him but Pele remains one of the best to have ever played the game.
In regards to that the Brazilian legend has finally conceded the name of the player that he thinks is the heir to him.
“Mbappe can become my heir, and I’m not kidding,” the Brazilian legend told La Gazzetta dello Sport, as it was cited by MARCA.
There are certain comparisons to be understood when you think of the two players side by side. Both of them are fast, clinical attackers who are not only quick decision makers but are also extremely skilled in the ball.
That's mighty generous from Pele, considering his habit of increasing his goals tally whenever someone comes close to breaking his record.
Mbappe has recently been often compared to Pele and like the legendary Brazilian, the former won the world championship at a young age.
In 2018 Mbappe, together with the French national team, became the world champion. At that tournament, the young striker was very good and was one of the best.
