Haaland Is Better In The Box Than Mbappe – Meunier

Erling Haaland is “much more of a killer” inside the box than Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, claims Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Meunier, with the right-back having played with both strikers.

Both Haaland and Mbappe have established themselves as two of the most lethal frontmen in world football, seemingly scoring at will and attracting the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs in the process.

Playing in a similar position and with only two years between them, many have wondered which of the forwards would represent the better value for money. For Meunier, however, their styles are simply too different to compare.

Speaking to reporters, the Belgian said:

“I can’t compare the two, they’re totally different. They’re both quick, but that’s it.

“Kylian is someone who looks for the one-v-one, he has a bit of everything. He makes me think of Thierry Henry.

“Erling on the other hand is more of a killer [in the box], he can beat any goalkeeper in the world. In the coming years, he can take the steps needed to be among the best players in the world.

“They will both be among the best players in the world when they’re around 25 years old.”
