EPL: Chelsea legend names two players to overtake Messi, Ronaldo

Chelsea legend, Gus Poyet, has named Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe as the two football players that will make people forget football icons Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the near future.

Poyet explained that Haaland and Mbappe are becoming so big and influential in the game.

Recall that Messi and Ronaldo are arguably the best two football stars to have played the game.

The pair have won twelve Ballon d’ Ors among them in the last 15 years.

“I don’t know if people remember, wherever you were, if you saw Real Madrid score, you knew it was Ronaldo, Barcelona score, you knew it was Messi, now it’s Haaland!” Poyet told Midnite.

“You watch any game, you hear Man City score, you know Haaland has scored. He’s young as well, he’s going to beat all the records in football, he’s going to beat everybody, he’s amazing.

“With Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe now, in the next few years, people will forget about Messi and Ronaldo, they are becoming so big and influential in the game it’s crazy. We say at the moment Benzema is the one at the top at the moment, but the Premier League should be delighted to have a player like Haaland.”
