The French edition of Figaro, referenced by sport.ua, published a ranking of the 10 best fastest players in modern football.
It does not contain Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.
And the Frenchman Kilian Mbappe led a sort of charts of sprint football players.
List of soccer sprinters.
- 1. Kilian Mbappé (Paris Saint-Germain) – 36 km / h
- 2. Inaki Williams (athletic) – 35.7 km / h
- 3. Pierre-Emerick Obameyang (Arsenal) – 35.5 km / h
- 4. Karim Bellarabi (Bayer) – 35.27 km / h
- 5. Kyle Walker (Manchester City) – 35.21 km / h
- 6. Leroy Sane (Manchester City) – 35.04 km / h
- 7-8. Mohammed Salah (Liverpool) and Kingsley Coman (Bayern) – 35 km / h
- 9. Alvaro Audriosola (Bayern) – 34.99 km / h
- 10. Nacho Fernandez (Real Madrid) – 34.62 km / h
It is interesting to note that, despite the excellent speed, one of these players is still far from the record of the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who in 2009 showed a speed of 44.72 km / h when he established a world record of 100 meters, covering the distance in 9.58 seconds.
