PSG star, Lionel Messi has made a comparism between his teammate, Kylian Mbappe to Atletico Madrid’s Luis Suarez ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
Messi, who is currently a teammate with Mbappe at PSG, played with Suarez during their time together at Barcelona.
The Argentine said Suarez is more of a scorer than before, while Mbappe is more about coming to play, being powerful and killing you with spaces.
Messi told Sport, “You can’t buy it. They [Mbappe and Suarez] are different. Luis is another type of 9, with different characteristics from Mbappé. Kylian was playing the last few years outside. This one, and I don’t remember if the previous one is also playing more than nine.
“Luis is more of a scorer than before, center forward. Kylian is more about coming to play, being powerful and killing you with spaces. The truth is that it changes the way of being the center forward. It is difficult to compare.
“I was lucky enough to be in that trident [Messi, Suarez and Neymar] of Barça that was wonderful and I hope that with this we can achieve the same as with the previous one.”
