After suffering a very violent tackle from Brestois Lilian Brassier, Kylian Mbappé escaped a huge injury.

Wednesday, Kylian Mbappé had a big scare. When Lilian Brassier committed a huge foul on the attacker PSG, the images of his ankle, which had completely turned, must have made the Parisian staff fear the worst. Finally, the captain of the Blues continued, but against the LOSC, Luis Enrique did not want to take any risks, leaving Kylian Mbappé on the bench throughout the match. But it was only a precaution as assured Luis Enrique.
“We didn’t want to take any risks with Kylian”
“ We didn’t want to take any risks with Kylian. We could have but it made no sense to do so. You saw him, he was very lucky. He could have played. If it had been a final, he would have been there. It was very intelligent on his part, and perhaps also on mine (smile) to preserve it this evening and prepare for Wednesday. “Precaution” (in French), as they say “, first confided the coach of the PSG at the microphone of Canal+before continuing in a press conference.
“Wednesday, he will be available, 100%”
“ Kylian is doing very well physically. We didn’t want to take any risks. If it had been a final, he would have played. On Wednesday, he will be available, 100%, without a doubt », adds Luis Enrique before judging the performance of the PSG without Kylian Mbappé : “ Coaches are always trying to build a team. It’s obvious that it’s a team sport, with players like Kylian capable of changing a match single-handedly, but I think it’s very important that we are aware of the very high level of the squad at our disposal. . The same goes for the performance of the players, always prepared to play. It gives me pride as a coach. »
