Video: Silva Calls Coupe de France Victory Bittersweet After Injuries to Kehrer and Mbappé

After winning his fifth Coupe de France, Thiago Silva spoke with the media postgame. He labeled this victory as bittersweet due to the injuries sustained to Thilo Kehrer and Kylian Mbappé. 

“Kehrer and Mbappé’s injuries? It’s difficult. It’s sad. It was a very difficult game. We didn’t play very well. We had some difficulties. We are happy for the title, but there is a feeling of sadness for Kylian,” Silva said. “I hope he can recover as quickly as possible. He is an essential player for us.”

These injuries will likely cause them to miss the Coupe de La Ligue final next week against Olympique Lyonnais. Both players will have about two and a half weeks to heal and see if they’ll be fit for the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals matchup versus Atalanta BC.
