Kylian Mbappe is better than Thierry Henry at the same age, says France boss Didier Deschamps

KYLIAN MBAPPE is better than Thierry Henry at the same age, according to France boss Didier Deschamps.

The Paris Saint-Germain star, 19, played a starring role at the World Cup as the French got their hands on the famous trophy for the first time since 1998.

Deschamps and Henry played together that summer – played on home soil – but Les Bleus’ chief already thinks the Young Player of the Tournament could be even better.

The Real Madrid target was simply scintillating to watch as he dazzled the globe with his dominant displays… with Deschamps simply “happy he’s French”.

The France boss revealed: “He knows he does things others don’t. He’s intelligent, he listens.

“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 per cent 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.”
