Fan Discovers All Of Kylian Mbappe's Celebrations Are Inspired By Cristiano Ronaldo

Fan Discovers All Of Kylian Mbappe's Celebrations Are Inspired By Cristiano Ronaldo

It appears the majority of Kylian Mbappe's iconic celebations are inspired by his idol.

As a youngster the French forward was obsessed about following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo. In fact, Mbappe's father once said his son used to "spend hours" watching videos of him on the internet.

Mbappe has also spoken about how influential the five-time Ballon d'Or winner was on his career during an interview with Spanish publication MARCA,

"He is a hero from my childhood and it was amazing to meet him when I visited Valdebebas," he said.

"But I am a competitor and a person who is very competitive and all I want to do is win, win, win. So it doesn't really matter who is in front of us, we want to win.

So it's no surprise that the 21-year-old has adopted a number of traits from Ronaldo, including a selection of celebrations, as pointed out by Twitter user @TheFergusonCode.

He posted seveal pictures in the post with the caption: "How am I understanding these references just now??"

Mbappe is on track to become a Ballon d'Or winner himself.

His remarkable goalscoring record in the Champions League is far more superior to Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi's when they were 21-years-old, and he continues to break records at international level too.

As a result of his rapid rise to stardom, many compared him to some of the world's best but when push comes to shove, who would he choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo?

In a great quote from France Football, the PSG forward says he would bench himself so both players could be in his team.

"If I had a choice between Messi and Ronaldo to play with me, I would sit on the bench and play both of them to be sure we would win."

Now this is what you call elite mentality
