The teenage frontman has enjoyed a stunning start to his fledgling career, but Manchester City's ex-Barcelona boss says that guarantees nothing
Pep Guardiola has refused to predict whether Kylian Mbappe can reach the stratospheric levels of Lionel Messi, but warned "nobody can sit at the same table as" the Barcelona star.
Guardiola's Manchester City were one of the victims of Mbappe's sensational breakthrough campaign at Monaco last season – the teenager scoring in each leg of a thrilling Champions League last-16 tie that the Ligue 1 club won on away goals following a 6-6 draw.
In all, Mbappe scored 26 goals in 44 games as Monaco beat Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title and reached the semi-finals in Europe.
Mbappe has since swapped the principality for PSG, linking up with Messi's former colleague Neymar as the Parisians look to muscle in on the fight for continental dominance.
The 18-year-old France international scored on his PSG debut, and followed it up with a strike against Celtic in midweek, but Guardiola says such feats at a young age do not guarantee future success.
