Mbappé Begins Testing His Ankle With Sprints and Using a Football

Two weeks since sustaining an ankle injury in the Coupe de France final against AS Saint-Étienne, Kylian Mbappé is beginning to do some training. The 21-year-old is hoping to see some minutes in Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League quarterfinal match against Atalanta BC. 

With the 28 man squad now in Lisbon, Portugal, the France international is doing some training apart from his teammates. RMC Sport reports that Mbappé is doing some running and working with a football. 

In the week, Thomas Tuchel ruled out Mbappé when it came to starting the match on Wednesday versus Atalanta. However, there is the possibility of the winger seeing time off the bench. 

The decision as to whether Mbappé will miss the match entirely will likely come the day before or right before kick-off. 

With the recent news of Marco Verratti being unavailable for the quarterfinal match and the uncertainty for the remainder of the tournament should PSG advance to the past Atalanta, the fanbase could use some good news.
