Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe beat Cristiano Ronaldo as world’s best player currently wearing no. 7 shirt.
A recent compilation made by reputable Whoscored.com shows that the Portuguese superstar’s reign as the most recognized athlete wearing no. 7 shirt has already ended.
The analytical website built a “best XI” line-up in the truest possible sense, with only the highest rated players who occupy shirt numbers 1 to 11 making the cut.
Still incredible at 35 years old, Ronaldo is indeed one of the best players of this era.
But according to recent ratings, there is no arguing that the Frenchman's form this season saw him as the better no. 7 player than Ronaldo.
Mbappe presents a strong case for beating Ronaldo, having been responsible for his club’s 23 league goals (scoring 18 and assisting 5) in just 1,516 minutes of action.
