Chelsea legend names two players to overtake Messi, Ronaldo
Erling Haaland of Manchester City and Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain are two football players who, in the near future, will make people forget about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Chelsea legend Gus Poyet.
Haaland and Mbappe's growing importance and influence in the game were explained by Poyet.
Remember that Ronaldo and Messi are arguably the two greatest football players to ever play the game.
The pair have won twelve Ballon d'Ors between them in the last 15 years.
“I don’t know if people remember, wherever you were, if you saw a Real Madrid score, you knew it was Ronaldo; a Barcelona score, you knew it was Messi; now it’s Haaland!” Poyet told Midnite.
“You watch any game, you hear Man City score, you know Haaland has scored. He’s young as well. He’s going to beat all the records in football, he’s going to beat everybody, he’s amazing.
“With Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe now, in the next few years, people will forget about Messi and Ronaldo. They are becoming so big and influential in the game it’s crazy. We say at the moment Benzema is the one at the top at the moment, but the Premier League should be delighted to have a player like Haaland.”
