‘Mbappe Is Better Than Thierry Henry At Age 19’- France Coach Deschamps

share on:

France coach, Didier Deschamps, says Kylian Mbappe “is already grown up” and is ahead of where legends, Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet were at a similar age.

Henry and Trezeguet were 20, when they were part of the France squad.

Both men, however, played cameo roles in the success and really became established at the European Championship two years later.

Mbappe, 19, scored four goals, including one in the final, and started all but one of France’s games in Russia.

“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 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.”
