Inter Milan defender, Stefan de Vrij has rated Kylian Mbappe ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo as the better player he has faced.
Ronaldo switched to the Serie A, in a move that has improved the league, joining Juventus from Madrid.
Many see his addition as a positive towards ending Juventus UCL drought.
“I confess, at first I did not believe he was coming to Italy,” the Dutchman told Corriere dello Sport .
“But when they [the media] kept saying it, then I started to take note. For Italian football, his arrival in Serie A was positive because it gives a great boost to the whole competition.
“I played against him with the national team in a friendly against Portugal before the 2014 World Cup. It finished 1-1 and he scored on a corner.”
When asked who the best attacker De Vrij has played against, the experienced Dutchman simply said: “That’s Mbappe.”
