The young man's stock continues to rise and rise As is tradition at this time of year, French outlet Journal du Diman
As is tradition at this time of year, French outlet Journal du Dimanche has published its list of the top 50 French personalities of 2018.
For the 8th time, singer-songwriter Jean-Jacques Goldman tops the list, ahead of movie stars Omar Sy and Dany Boon.
But representing French football in 4th place is none other than Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé.
And it’s hardly surprising. The 20-year-old not only wowed onlookers with his performances for PSG this year, but also played a pivotal role in Les Bleus’ World Cup triumph in Russia.
He’s not the only football personality on the list, however.
Three-time Champions League winning coach Zinedine Zidane is 6th, while the world champions are well represented by Antoine Griezmann (15th), N’Golo Kanté (29th), Didier Deschamps (35th), Hugo Lloris (48th) and Paul Pogba (50th).
So which trophy will Mbappé get his hands on first? The Ballon d’Or or French personality of the year?
