Champions League: Thierry Henry chooses between Haaland, Mbappe

Former Arsenal captain, Thierry Henry has said he would choose Kylian Mbappe in his team ahead of Erling Haaland.

Haaland scored twice as Manchester City hammered Sevilla 4-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Mbappe also netted a brace for Paris Saint-Germain in a 2-1 win over Juventus.

However, Henry still prefers his French compatriot to Haaland, despite the Norwegian scoring 12 goals in his first seven matches for City.

“Mbappe can create and finish. Haaland doesn’t create. He finishes,” Henry told CBS.

“Mbappe can play on the right and on the left. He can play in the middle. Haaland can only play in the middle.

“He is a magnificent player and with him they can win the Champions League last year against Real Madrid. If it was him at the end of those chances that they missed, they will have been focused on scoring one or two. For now, Mbappe is still my vote.”
