Glik: 'Mbappé can be a superstar'

Ligue 1 Conforama > News

Kamil Glik believes his former AS Monaco team-mate Kylian Mbappé has the potential to be better than Radamel Falcao and Robert Lewandowski.

Mbappé exploded onto the scene last season with some stunning displays in Monaco's Ligue 1 Conforama title triumph, netting no fewer than 15 times in 29 top-flight appearances, and his summer move to Paris Saint-Germain has done little to halt the teenager's meteoric rise

Poland international Glik has played with Bayern Munich's Lewandowski for their country and has faced Colombia star Falcao in training. But he was so impressed by Mbappé's talent and demeanour that the former Torino defender is confident the 18-year-old can outstrip the illustrious pair's achievements, despite a recent dip in form.

"He is under pressure, but he has a good head on his shoulders, which means he can get even better. I'm convinced that once he's reached the top of the game, he'll be able to handle it.

"I would say he has a great future ahead of him. He can be a world leader, I have no doubt about that. He's certainly one of the best players with which I've played, perhaps even the best."
