Drogba suggests next Ballon d'Or winner
- Didier Drogba believes France's wonderkid Kylian Mbappe is a future contender for the Ballon d'Or
- Drogba also praised the introduction of the VAR system at the 2018 World Cup
"He's a kid that I know. I've seen him play the last few years and I know the people who helped him to be the player he is now," Drogba said.
"I'm very happy for him. And if he continues like this, why not? Why not win the Ballon d'Or?"
"I had the chance to meet him and we had an important meeting with a lot of influential people in France, with the president Mr Macron," he added.
"We were exchanging ideas and when he started speaking I can tell you that the kid is 19-years-old but he's not a kid. He's very mature and he's very composed when he's talking."
"I think the VAR for me has been a success.
"It's the first time we use it in a big competition like this. Of course there's going to be ups and downs but, in general, I think everybody is pleased with what it brought to the game."
