In a wholesome display of virtual sportsmanship, Kylian Mbappe reacted to Marcus Rashford being handed the legendary number 10 shirt at Manchester United and congratulated him on Instagram.
Mbappe, who has just returned back to camp at PSG after a successful campaign at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, congratulated the United hotshot after he was seen donning the no. 10 shirt during United’s last pre-season friendly against Bayern Munich.
The no. 10 kit at United holds a lot of sentimental value and has seen the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Teddy Sheringham and more recently, Zlatan Ibrahimovic wearing this prestigious shirt for the club.
So it goes without saying Rashford has some pretty big shoes to fill.
With Mbappe reacting to Rashford’s Instagram post, it seems like a healthy competitive spirit is brewing between Europe’s two most sensational young footballers.
Screenshots of Rashford’s Instagram post of him rocking the no. 10 with responses from Mbappe and Wayne Rooney started popping up all over Twitter.
