Brazil football legend Pele hospitalised with strong fever in Paris

Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe

World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe has often been compared to Pele but the Paris St-Germain striker does not think he will match the Brazil great's scoring tally during his career.

"Kylian does not need to leave PSG [to become the best in the world]", said the 78-year-old victor of three World Cup titles.

The three-time World Cup victor and the 20-year-old attended an event, which was part of an advertising campaign in the French capital. His style, the way he is playing, is Latino.

'Mbappe said France will prepare to win the next World Cup, but he should know that we (Brazil) are also going to get ready, ' Pele said. To 1,000 it's okay, " the three-times World Cup victor said, "because I have one thousand and twenty-five!

Mbappe previous year became only the second teenager to score in a World Cup final, following in Pele's footsteps, in France's 4-2 victory over Croatia when he was still just 19.

That being said, the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor recently met up with Brazil legend Pele as they rubbed shoulders at a Hublot event.




Mbappe replied: "The King will always remain King". "He must continue to play the same way that he is already doing - that is how he will become the world's best".

The footballer went on to win two more World Cups with Brazil in 1962 and 1970.

Asked about Mbappe's main qualities, Pele said he was impressed by his pace and intelligence.

He also believes it's possible for the 20-year-old to score 1000 career goals: "It's possible", he added.

At the event, France World Cup-winner Mbappe said of matching Pele's three world titles: "But it would be unreal".
