“Kylian Mbappe deserved to win. I’m not saying that Messi and Haaland don’t deserve it. He is still young, years have passed but with what he has achieved, he deserves to win,” Didier Deschamps said.
“I was surprised at the number of votes of some people. Not putting Kylian Mbappe in the top 5 is really… I won’t say anything more, but things are not far away. The former AS Monaco player is 192 points behind his former teammate Lionel Messi in the poll.
Although he did not win the Golden Ball, 2023 was an impressive year for Mbappe when he scored a total of 54 goals in all competitions and won Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain. Despite the defeat at the World Cup, the striker born in 1998 still had a classy performance in Qatar.
