Paris Saint-Germain tactician, Thomas Tuchel is hoping for a miracle from the condition of one of its flagship players, Kylian Mbappe.
As is known, Kylian Mbappe did suffer a fatal injury when dealing with Saint-Etinne in the French Cup Final party last week.
The injury was obtained by the player when receiving a brutal tackle from one of the opposing players. As a result, Mbappe could not continue the match.
His condition looked alarming, because the player was seen using a walking aid with a bandaged foot while celebrating the title with his colleagues after the match.
Sure enough, not long after the match, Paris Saint-Germain confirmed that Kylian Mbappe had an ankle injury and would be out for the next three weeks.
In other words, the 21-year-old figure will not be able to appear in the match against Atalanta in the first leg of the European Champions League quarter-finals.
The plan, the match will take place on 12 August.
Of course this is a hard slap for Paris Saint-Germain, which for the last three years has relied heavily on the Winger.
Coach Thomas Tuchel hopes there is a solution that can make Mbappe appear in the match, although it is very difficult. But however, the team must continue to adapt without its presence.
“This will be an important influence on us, but I hope that a solution will be found,”
We still hope he can play against Atalanta, but his chances will be very small. Every day is counted to get a miracle, but tomorrow we will have to adapt without Kylian, “Tuchel was quoted as saying by Goal International.
It is very unfortunate, the article Paris Saint-Germain is so ambitious to make history by winning the European Champions League this season.
But, Thomas Tuchel’s troops still have other players who are not less great, including Neymar and Icardi. They can also rely on Mbappe again if they qualify for the semifinals.
Meanwhile, before the match against Atalanta later, Paris Saint-Germain will first face Lyon in the French League Cup final this weekend. Of course, Mbappe is also certain to be absent from the match.
