PSG Medical Update: Mbappe Set to be Sidelined for Three Weeks Due to Ankle Injury

Paris Saint-Germain announced on Monday that star forward Kylian Mbappe will be out of action for an estimated three weeks due to an ankle injury.

The club conducted an MRI on his right ankle and revealed that the Frenchman has an “ankle sprain with damage to the external ligament.” PSG will continue to reevaluate his condition over the coming weeks.

Mbappe suffered the injury during the recent Coupe de France final win over AS Saint-Etienne. As Mbappe was racing into the final third to retrieve a loose ball, Saint-Etienne defender and team captain Loic Perrin came in for a sliding tackle attempt that left the Frenchman rolling in serious pain. Mbappe was forced to leave the contest in the first half following the challenge while Perrin also departed early with a red card.

The estimate of three weeks will now officially rule him out for the Coupe de la Ligue final against Olympique Lyonnais later this week. But all eyes now shift towards his condition for the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal bout against Atalanta. Mbappe should be set to miss the contest but there is always a chance that he could recover just in time to at the least feature as a substitute against the Serie A side.
