An XXL performance hailed by Victor Wembanyama.

It’s obvious how big he is and only people who are in denial can’t, or won’t, acknowledge him.“, he confided before expressing himself on the comparisons between the two nuggets of French sport: “Honestly, it’s kind of flattering to be compared to him, isn’t it? There is worse« .

“We both have to write our own story”

Victor Wembanyama and Kylian Mbappe are both immensely talented in their respective sports, but the young basketball player intends to write his own story: « I can understand the comparisons: we are both young, from the same generation and we are trying to accomplish things each in our sport. But we both have to write our own story and for him as for me, even if he took a little head start, it is only just beginning. Many things are still to be written and I hope that, for him as well as for me, the pages will be beautiful“, confided the player of the Metropolitans 92, whose sporting career began as a football goalkeeper.
