France Coach, Didier Deschamps believes Kylian Mbappe at 19 is better than Thierry Henry at 19.

Mbappe proved crucial, scoring in the 4-2 final win against Croatia as France won the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

He scored a total of four goals in the tournament including two important goals which secured a 4-3 win over Argentina in the quarter-finals.

The PSG Star is just 19-year-old but already has achieved so much at the biggest level of football and his national team manager Didier Deschamps believes he’s one step ahead of previous greats.

“He knows he does things others don’t. He’s intelligent, he listens,” Deschamps told Le Parisien.

“I tell him when he does things well, but so many people say that.

“I’m also there to tell him what’s not good, even if that represents only five percent of his game. He corrects it and he listens.

“In 1998, David Trezeguet and Thierry Henry were his age but didn’t have the same role. Kylian is already grown up.

“I have played with very good players. I have also coached them. But him, it’s not only the quality. In terms of his age…With what he does now and what he should do in the future, I have always said, I’m very happy he’s French.
