'Mbappe is the rightful successor to Messi & Ronaldo' - Trezeguet backs PSG star to win Ballon d'Or

Kylian Mbappe is "the rightful successor" to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to David Trezeguet, who has backed the Paris Saint-Germain star to win the Ballon d'Or.

Barcelona talisman Messi and Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo have shared 11 golden balls between them over the past 13 years, cementing their status among the best players in history.

However, both men are now approaching the latter stages of their respective careers at 33 and 36, and Trezeguet believes Mbappe is in the best position to replace the duo at the very top of the game.
