However, in the Spanish newspaper Marca recently, when asked if Mbappe and Haaland were the two players best suited to take over the positions of Messi and Ronaldo, Capello replied: “No, no. It will be Mbappe and Bellingham. For me, the two players who will fight like Messi and Ronaldo did are Mbappe and Bellingham.”
