Released on injury just after the break against Bruges, Mbappé only suffers from a simple trauma to the toe.
He had already left the gathering of the France team prematurely and he did the same on Wednesday evening on the Belgian lawn of FC Bruges.
A few minutes after the return from the locker room, Kylian Mbappé collapsed in the middle of the field, after a clash with Stanley N’Soki. Writhing in pain, he immediately made the gesture of an early change.
Limped out and helped by the medical staff of PSG, the French striker did not inspire much confidence in his state of health and Mauricio Pochettino even considered a twisted ankle, even if the Parisian coach preferred to wait for the exams to really ring the bell alarm.
Not to miss
“Mbappé twisted his ankle, he already had problems with both ankles. We will see tomorrow (Thursday) if we can have more precise news”, Mauricio Pochettino explained after the meeting.
The Argentinian can breathe since the exams taken this Thursday in Paris have minimized the severity of Mbappé’s injury according to Le Parisien and confirmed by Goal. Rather than a twist, it turns out that he ultimately suffers from trauma to the big toe on his left foot after being hit.
Uncertain for OL
This verdict is a priori reassuring since it rules out any injury but does not end the possibility of an absence for the shock against Olympique Lyonnais, Sunday at the Parc des Princes.
A new point must be made on Friday between the player and the entire staff of Pochettino in order to know the true feelings of the player.
No decision concerning his Sunday presence will be taken before tomorrow and above all no risk either for the striker who had been hit in the calf on September 1 with the Blues, and who had only resumed competition last Saturday, against Clermont. .
Also affected in Bruges, Georginio Wijnaldum should be present against Lyon. Replaced by Julian Draxler in Belgium, the Dutch midfielder felt pain in his ankle which he had twisted during the rally with the Netherlands.
