The Ballon d’Or debate is still ongoing, with fans and football analysts arguing over Erling Haaland and Lionel Messi.

Kylian Mbappe is among the debate, but many believe the Frenchman will come in as third.

Interestingly, PSG head coach Luis Enrique, has come out to say Mbappe is the world’s best.

“Kylian Mbappe is the best player in the world, trust me,” Luis Enrique told the media after Paris Saint-Germain beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the Champions League.

“More than his technical skills, what has impressed me is his human quality. It’s a pleasure to have him in dressing room — he’s a leader who always has a smile on his face.”

Mbappe is expected to sign up for Real Madrid as a free agent at the end of the season, following the expiry of his contract with PSG.
