The Top 10 Fastest Players In World Football Right Now

The Top 10 Fastest Players In World Football Right Now

Kylian Mbappe is the fastest player in world football after clocking an insane 36km/h.

We've see the World Cup winner's electric pace with and without the ball on many an occasion since he burst onto the scene in 2016 and that is reflected in his ridiculous top speed figure from French outlet Le Figaro, via the Daily Mail here.

100m world record holder Usain Bolt has gone on record to say that he would have the PSG star in his team for a 4x100m relay - alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale - and speaks volumes of just how quick Mbappe really is.

Athletic Bilbao's Inaki Williams isn't that far behind Mbappe having amassed 35.7km/h speed, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the fastest player in the Premier League with 35.5km/h.

Karim Bellarabi of Bayer Leverkusen comes in at fourth with 35.26km/h.

Manchester City speedster Kyle Walker is the fastest defender in world football and his score of 35.21km/h sees him occupy fifth spot and just edge out his teammate Leroy Sane on 35.04km/h. The pair discussed having a race for charity in 2018, withWalker receiving the backing of Kevin De Bruyne, but we're yet to see if it happened.

Mo Salah's twinkle-toes feet are a feature of his game and they've helped him record 35km/h, which slots the Egyptian King in at number seven on the list.

Bayern Munich pair Kingsley Coman and Alvaro Odriozola are as close as can be on 35km/h and 34.99km/h respectively, with a surprise final member of the list in Real Madrid's Nacho Hernandez, with the 30-year old achieving an impressive top speed of 34.62km/h.

Here is the top 10 in full:

1. Kylian Mbappe - 36km/h

2. Inaki Williams - 35.7km/h

3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 35.5km/h
