Mbappe Must Remain Humble And Hungry – Gigi Buffon



Gianluigi Buffon has word of advice for his young teammate, Kylian Mbappe, telling him to remain grounded and hungry to become a part of the greats.

The 19-year-old was sensational for France at the World Cup, scoring in the final to become the second teenager to achieve such a feat.

And Buffon has called on him to remakn humble and hungry, so as to make a name for himself.

“When I spoke [after the match] with Andrea Barzagli, who is one of my great friends, he told me ‘Gigi, in 20 years of my career I have rarely seen a player run so fast with the ball, I had a hard time stopping him’,” the goalkeeper told PSG’s official club magazine.

“These words are not insignificant because Barzagli, when he is focused and fit, is really a top defender.

“It’s obvious [Mbappe] has something more than others. I hope he will remain humble and keep this desire to progress and make sacrifices.

“If so, he will make a mark in the history of football and write incredible pages of the sport.”
