Paris Saint-Germain star, Kylian Mbappe has insisted that fellow team-mate, Lionel Messi is the best player in the world, after revealing earlier in the year that he would pick footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo over the Argentinian.

Messi moved to France from Barcelona earlier in the summer and linked up with Mbappe and Neymar, thereby forming the most potent front-three in world football. It was not all smooth sailing for the trio at the start of the season, but it now looks like they are getting to their best on the pitch.

"It's easy to play with Lionel Messi. He's the best player in the world. He won the Ballon d'Or a few days ago. He scored two goals today, he is happy, and I hope he will help us in the future," Mbappe said post PSG's win over Club Brugge on Tuesday.

This has come as a surprise to many considering that the Frenchman had revealed to Marca in February that he rated Ronaldo slightly higher from time to time. 

"From one year to the next, my choice changes between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Even if I have to admit to picking Ronaldo more often. I loved him when I was younger. He is a hero from my childhood and it was amazing to meet him when I visited Valdebebas."

What is without doubt is that the Messi and Ronaldo are two of the greatest players in the history of the sport, dominating football for more than a decade now.
