Kylian Mbappe has done some extraordinary things in his short time as a professional footballer.

The Frenchman, 23, made his debut for Monaco in 2015.

He has since scored over 200 professional goal and won countless trophies at club level with Paris Saint-Germain.

He also played a pivotal role as France won the World Cup in 2018.

If Mbappe continues to improve, he could well become one of the greatest footballers to have ever played the sport.

But who does the French superstar think are the sport’s best ever players?

In 2017, Mbappe named the greatest XI of players that he has seen play in an interview with Foot Mercato, per the Metro.

View who he included below…

GK: Gianluigi Buffon

One of the greatest goalkeepers ever. Buffon is still going strong at the age of 44.

RB: Cafu

Brilliant in defence and electric going forward. A right-back like no other.

CB: Sergio Ramos

Mbappe has since gone on to play alongside Ramos, with the Spaniard joining PSG in 2020.

CB: Paolo Maldini

A centre-back that had it all. He played at the top level for 25 years.

LB: Roberto Carlos

Football’s greatest entertainer. He possessed every trick in the book. A real joy to watch.

CM: Zinedine Zidane

Zidane is the only Frenchman to make it into Mbappe’s side.

LW: Neymar

The team wouldn’t be complete without Messi, would it?! The seven-time Ballon d’Or joined Mbappe at PSG in 2021.

ST: Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo was Mbappe’s hero growing up. The Portuguese legend has scored the most goals in football history.

ST: Ronaldo Nazario

Ronaldo’s time at the top was brief due to struggles with injuries. But, at his peak, he is arguably the greatest player to have ever graced the sport.
