Kylian Mbappe has built his perfect footballer but decided to leave himself out.

Mbappe, 19, joined PSG in the summer of 2017 and recently helped France to win the World Cup.

He is one of the favourites for the Ballon d'Or following his exploits, but when asked to build his perfect footballer he chose not to put himself in.

Instead, he went for some pretty recognisable names.

"I would choose Messi's left foot, Neymar's right foot, Cristiano's mentality and Buffon's class," he told ESPN in an interview.

" Which Mbappe's part? There's no need, it's good just like this!"

Mbappe's performances at such a young age, particularly on the world stage, has led to some comparisons with Pele but the forward was keen to play down those suggestions.

"Of course I was very happy, very proud, but this is a difficult comparison," he said.

"I don't think anyone can do it like he did on his day. There's only one Pele, he's unique.

"I didn't give too much attention to it, because no-one will ever be like Pele."
