Samuel Eto'o suggests Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo be replaced by a "new God."

Former Barcelona midfielder Samuel Eto'o feels that France's Kylian Mbappe will overtake Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as football's most powerful figures.

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe is already one of the best players in the world, but the Cameroon star believes the Frenchman will set a new standard.

Mbappe has been hailed the "new God" of the beautiful game by Eto'o, who played alongside Messi at Barcelona. “Cristiano is a god unto himself. They, together with Messi, are the players who have left the most indelible impression on present football,” he told the Argentine newspaper La Nacion.

“However, when Messi and Cristiano tire of bringing us delight, another God will appear. Kylian Mbappe will be that new God.”

Few would disagree with Eto'o, who was once one of the top players in the world, especially when predicting Mbappe–of all people –as the best player on the planet. At the age of22, the PSG sensation is already one of the most feared players on the planet, and it's frightening to think of the heights he'll reach in the future.
