Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo have long ruled the world of football. Who will dominate the next? Who will dominate the 90-minute classic fight after the two superstars?
According to experts, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland will replace Messi-Ronaldo. However, Manchester City’s Argentinian forward Julian Alvarez is more mature than this star. Real Madrid and Inter Milan former Chilean footballer Ivan Zamorano thinks so.
Julian Alvarez joined Manchester City from the Argentine club River Plate last July. This Argentinian youngster made his presence known by scoring 3 goals in 12 matches in the premier league. Alvarez scored two goals and an assist in six Champions League matches. This Argentinian forward kept the rhythm of the club in the world cup.
Julian Alvarez played a key role in winning the title of Albiceleste by playing 7 matches and scoring 4 goals and 1 assist.
“I was a center forward,” Ivan Zamorano told the Argentine daily Diario Ole. At the moment I think the most mature attacking player (among the youngsters) is Julian Alvarez.
Zamorano, who played for Chile in the 1998 World Cup, said: “He is a player who shows skill in everything. He is great on the wing, can defend the opposition quite well, and has the ability to take great shots on both the right and left feet. Physical strength is also good”
Kylian Mbappe won the golden boot by scoring 8 goals in the World Cup. The French forward scored a hat-trick in the final against Argentina. Meanwhile, Manchester City’s Norwegian goal machine Erling Haaland continues to rampage in the Premier League. He scored 18 goals and 3 assists in 13 matches. Haaland scored 5 goals in 4 matches in the Champion League this season.
Why Julian Alvarez is better than Mbappe-Haaland? Ivan Zamorano explains it. He said, ” Haaland is not that good on the wing. Mbappe tires for Chances. And Julian does it all. He is also great as a person. That puts him ahead of others.
Undoubtedly, he is the future of Argentine football.
