Paul Pogba: I don't deserve to win the Ballon d'Or

At just 19 years of age, Mbappe already has two Ligue 1 titles and a World Cup under his belt, even being named the Golden Boy owing to France's successful exploits in Russian Federation this July.

Mbappe's remarkable exploits have also earned him a Ballon d'Or nomination alongside the likes of Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Luka Modric and Neymar . "The best team in the world surely possesses the best player, right?"

His France teammate Antoine Griezmann, who is also among the 30 nominees for the 2018 Golden Ball, has now insisted the speedy winger reminds him of a young Ronaldo. He was not looking for goals, though.

"I think they belong in the same category of player, but Kylian is very young. He will be scoring 50 goals per season".

"In front of goal in training, Kylian is not all that", he added. That's all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it.

According to Donald Trump, before departing for another campaign event in Iowa: "well, I like to see low interest rates". By convention presidents rarely comment on central bank policy because the Fed is meant to be independent of politics.

Antoine Griezmann expressed his belief that the victor of the Ballon d'Or should be French following their World Cup win in Russian Federation this summer and Manchester United's Paul Pogba agrees, but he does not think that he himself is worthy of the title. When we do finishing drills, he never wins.

"In any case, that is how I see it". But I think that a Frenchman must win the Ballon d'Or this year'.

French star Antoine Greizmann has made some bold claims about his global teammate Mbappe, stating that the 19-year-old reminds him of a young Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.

"I messaged him afterwards and said: "You need to call for the ball closer to the goal". "Historically speaking, it is for the best of the best". There are only star players, only legends among the winners. It would be a dream to become an example to others'.
