Paris Saint-Germain head coach Luis Enrique has, late on Sunday, provided an update on the wellbeing of star man Kylian Mbappe.
For those who may have missed it, attacker Mbappe set pulses racing across the PSG fanbase a short time ago.
This came during the club’s Le Classique showdown with fierce rivals Olympique de Marseille.
En route to an eventual 4-0 rout for the reigning Ligue 1 champions, Mbappe lasted just half an hour, before picking up what appeared to be an ankle problem.
The 24-year-old, in turn, was quickly hauled off, for eventual brace-hitter Goncalo Ramos.
Speaking to the media post-match at the Parc des Princes, the subject of his side’s prolific frontman’s fitness was therefore inevitably put to manager Luis Enrique.
This comes with PSG preparing for a busy upcoming stretch of fixtures, including a Champions League group stage meeting with Newcastle United on October 4th.
In a boost for all associated with the club, though, boss Enrique went on to reveal that Mbappe’s withdrawal against Marseille came as a ‘precaution’, with the World Cup winner in fact feeling ‘fine’:
“Kylian has no serious worries. It’s a blow, he’s fine but it was precautionary to get him out.”
