All Kylian Mbappe’s Celebrations Inspired By Cristiano Ronaldo, Claims Made

It appears the majority of Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe's iconic celebrations are inspired by the obsession for his idol Cristiano Ronaldo.

In fact, Mbappe's father once said his son used to “spend hours” watching videos of him on the internet.

The French forward has also spoken about how influential Ronaldo was on his career during an interview with Spanish publication MARCA.

“He is a hero from my childhood and it was amazing to meet him when I visited Valdebebas,” the 21-year-old said.

“But I am a competitor and a person who is very competitive and all I want to do is win, win, win. So it doesn't really matter who is in front of us, we want to win.

“I admired him when I was younger, but that ended. Now I go to the Bernabeu to play and to win.

So it's no surprise that Mbappe has adopted a number of traits from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, including a selection of celebrations, as pointed out by Twitter user @TheFergusonCode.
