Kylian Mbappe delivered one of the biggest nights in his young career against Barcelona on Tuesday. A hat trick in the Camp Nou cemented his spot as one of the best players in all of world football, eclipsing Lionel Messi on the biggest stage. Jorge Valdano took to Spanish radio, on air with Onda Cero, to analyze Mbappe’s situation.

“He [Mbappe] has the personality to demonstrate his quality on the biggest stage and in the most important matches,” Valdano explained.
