Is Haaland better than Mbappe? Luis Suarez gives his take


  • Former Liverpool and Barcelona striker has weighed in on the Erling Braut Haaland Vs Kylian Mbappe debate
  • There has been plenty of talks in recent months as to which of the two attackers are better than the other
  • Both have been tipped by their fans and neutrals alike to take the baton from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the coming years

Former Liverpool and FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is of the opinion Erling Haaland is better than Kylian Mbappe, as per COPE.

Haaland has set European football alight since his €22.5m move to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund from Austrian outfit RB Salzburg in January.

The 20-year-old Norway international has since scored an inexplicable 49 goals in as many appearances for the German side in all competitions.

His PSG counterpart Mbappe, meanwhile, announced himself on the European stage with his excellent performances for Monaco in his breakthrough 2016/17 season.

Mbappe’s 15 goals in 29 Ligue 1 starts helped Monaco clinch the French top-flight title and his 6 goals in the Champions League helped carry Les Monegasques to the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they were eventually beaten by finalists Juventus.

The France international overcame that seatback by moving to PSG for a €145 million transfer fee in the following season, where he has won three successive Ligue 1 titles, among other trophies, in the previous three campaigns.

And when asked about Mbappe or Haaland being better, he added: “A little more for Haaland, but Mbappé is at a very high level.”
