PSG star Mbappe talks up Real Madrid icons Zidane and Ronaldo

PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has spoken of his admiration for Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

It's no secret that Zidane has lobbied for Real to move for Mbappe this summer - and the young forward admits he's long been a fan of his fellow Frenchman. Mbappe also spoke highly of another Real icon.

He said, "My first idol was Zidane for everything he achieved with the National Team.

"Then it was Cristiano (Ronaldo). He has won a lot and is still a winner after so much success. Both have left their mark on the history of football and I want to leave my own chapter in the books."

Mbappe also told the Mirror: "One of my great ambitions is to win the Champions League. Being part of PSG winning their first European Cup would be something very special."
