Kylian Mbappé Update: Latest on PSG Star’s Ankle Injury

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé suffered an ankle injury in the capital club’s 3-1 Coupe de France Round of 16 win over Stade Brestois on Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes.

Lilian Brassier from Brest committed two fouls on the 25-year-old player, earning two yellow cards and resulting in a red card. Despite one of the fouls causing an ankle injury, Mbappé completed the game.

PSG manager Luis Enrique was asked about the Frenchman’s status after the game. However, the Spanish boss refrained from providing extensive comments on the matter, as he lacked sufficient details to determine whether Mbappé might be absent for a period of time.

“No… the truth is that I have no news,” Enrique said. “The doctors are going to do tests tomorrow, he took a big blow to his ankle. He was able to complete the match, so I don’t think it will be very serious. This is the news I have.”

On Wednesday, Arthur Perrot from RMC Sport conveyed that initial assessments of Kylian Mbappé’s ankle were promising. His ankle’s progress will be closely monitored starting Thursday morning.

PSG plays on Saturday against LOSC Lille at the Parc des Princes, with the first leg of the UEFA Champions League contest on the 14th; perhaps Enrique decides to rest Mbappé.
