Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino has hailed striker, Kylian Mbappe - revealing that the youngster is already among the "best in the world" and that he has the potential to exceed the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the future.

Mbappe has established himself as one of the best strikers in the world, with the 22-year-old scoring goals in droves for both club and country. His performances have led many to claim that he will take up the mantle of the "best player in the world" once Messi and Ronaldo decide to hang up their boots.

There has been a speculation surrounding his future considering that his current contract with PSG expires in the summer of 2022, with LaLiga giants, Real Madrid understood to be keen to make him their next big signing.

"He has the potential. He lacks nothing but time. We cannot speed up the process. I think he's already among the best in the world. It will take time for him to flesh out his CV, to get the recognition he deserves and will get," Pochettino told AFP.

The youngster has been brilliant in front of goal for PSG, scoring 113 goals in just 155 games in all competitions for them during his career so far.
