Bayern Defender Upamecano Hails Mbappe As World Best Footballer

Bayern Munich defender Dayot Upamecano has named Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe as the world best footballer.

This is despite the Bayern Munich player keeping Mbappe at bay during the German side’s 3-0 aggregate win over PSG in the Champions League last 16.

Upamecano, who plays for France national team disclosed this to talkSPORT.

“It’s much easier to have him in your team. You have to always be well balanced, ready to move in any direction; to be vigilant, watching his positioning on the pitch and also his body language.

“He is the best player in the world – he is extraordinary,” Upamecano said.

Bayern Munich had a smooth ride over PSG in the round of sixteen of Europe’s elite competition despite the Parisians lining up the likes of Neymar Junior, Sergio Ramos, Lionel Messi, Mbappe, and others.

Mbappe, so far has scored 31 goals in 35 games across competitions.
