Micah Richards makes the CBS panel gasp after outrageous claim about Thierry Henry and Kylian Mbappe

Micah Richards has compared Kylian Mbappe with Thierry Henry

Micah Richards made the entire CBS Sports panel gasp after making a claim about Thierry Henry and Kylian Mbappe.

On Wednesday night, Paris Saint Germain resumed their Champions League campaign with a last-16 tie against Spanish La Liga outfit Real Sociedad.

Ahead of kick-off, a lot of the talk was about Mbappe and his future, with many expecting the Frenchman to move to Real Madrid in the summer.

The 26-year-old is expected to leave PSG when his contract expires at the end of the 23/24 campaign.

Speaking on CBS Sports, Richards claimed that Mbappe has more aura than Henry.

The former Manchester City defender said: “Kylian Mbappe, looking at him, his aura, he reminds me of a young Titi(Henry), but I think he’s got a litle bit more.”

At this point, presenter Kate Abdo and fellow pundit Jamie Carragher gasped as they were left shocked by Richards' comments.

Richards then said: “I meant his style not as a player calm down!

“I just love him because I genuinely believe he is the best player on earth right now. People talking about him earlier on in the season saying he’s not doing that well. He’s got 30 goals in 29 appearances, whenever someone doubts him, he delivers. He is a joy to watch. He is an all-round superstar and I love him in a PSG shirt but he needs to go and do bigger and better things and it sounds like he could be at Real Madrid.”

Speaking to Henry, Richards said: "I wasn't trying to disrespect you Titi by the way, I meant you know, the Va Va Vroom. He has loads of style but he(Mbappe) could have more, Kiki is you know."

Henry then replied: "It is because I nutmegged him!"

Speaking about his future in January, Mbappe said: “Mbappe said: “First of all, I am very, very, very motivated for this year. It is very important. As I said, we have titles to chase and we've already won one, so that's already done. After that, no, I haven't made a decision yet."
