Ronaldinho wants Kylian Mbappe to win the Ballon d’Or at PSG

Paris Saint-Germain legend Ronaldinho has expressed his desire for Kylian Mbappé to win the Ballon d’Or while still playing for the French club.

Ronaldinho, who won the prestigious award in 2005, hopes Mbappé can secure the trophy during his time with Les Parisiens. Despite surpassing his own goalscoring records, Mbappé finished third in the 2022 Ballon d’Or, with Lionel Messi claiming the top spot and Erling Haaland in second.

Ronaldinho expressed his desire for Kylian Mbappé, whom he considers “a good friend and a great player,” to win the France Football Ballon d’Or while the French forward is still with Paris Saint-Germain.

A great player like him can have the chance to win the Ballon d’Or for any team, but as I love PSG, I want him to do it with PSG,” the iconic former Barcelona winger told AFP

But as time has already passed? Mbappé’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the season, and the next Ballon d’Or ceremony is not scheduled until the autumn. While the French forward could potentially stay at PSG beyond the summer, there have been no reports of contract renewal discussions, and there are ongoing rumors of a possible departure in the summer. As a result, Ronaldinho may not see his wish fulfilled.
