France legend, Thierry Henry has come out to back Kylian Mbappe to keep reaching new heights after scoring his 300th career goal. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he is very happy that Mbappe is a French player because he is a special footballer every nation would love dawning their jersey.
Henry added that he wonders how amazing his career can still get since he has already achieved a lot at a young age.
His words, “What this little one does is not nothing. It’s just incredible […] the problem is when you are so good, people often see when you miss or when you’re not good. We expect a lot of him, but he should just not have been so good! Joking aside, let’s be happy that he is French. How high can he go? 1000. I’m overdoing it, but honestly, it is Kylian that decides.”
