The German winger made this claim while debating about Mbappe with his Bayern Munich teammates in a TV documentary.
The PSG forward is widely regarded as one of the best players in Europe, having won multiple league titles with Monaco and PSG. He was also instrumental in France’s 2018 World Cup win and scored the winning goal for his nation as they won the UEFA Nations League recently.
Meanwhile, Dembele has never really proved his worth since his move to Barcelona in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund. Injuries and lack of end product when he is fit have blighted the Frenchman’s career. Although he was also part of the France squad that won the World Cup in 2018, most Barcelona fans consider him as a waste of money.
Despite these, Gnabry still holds him in higher esteem than Mbappe
Muller is then heard saying: “What do you mean, better? If I could dribble like Dembele, I would be better too.”
But Kimmich had the final word and opted against judging Mbappe before insisting that Dembele is inferior to both Gnabry and Coman, who was also present for the debate.
“If I am asked to choose between Dembele and Gnabry or Coman, I would always take Gnabry or Coman,” he said. “This Dembele discussion p*sses me off!”
While Mbappe has scored 168 goals in 245 career appearances to date, including 138 for PSG, Dembele has recorded just 52 goals in 197 games since the start of his career, with 30 of those goals coming for Barcelona.
Mbappe has also found the net 19 times in 51 caps for France, while Dembele has only four goals to his name from 27 outings.
