PSG Left ‘Surreal’ as Journalist Unveils Club’s Reaction to Kylian Mbappé Drama

Paris Saint-Germain coach Luis Enrique decided to substitute Kylian Mbappé for the second consecutive game. During the goalless draw against AS Monaco, the Spanish tactician opted to bring Randal Kolo Muani in place of the 25-year-old, sparking a chain reaction of drama.

Initially, there was speculation about Mbappé’s substitution, with one early assumption suggesting a potential injury during the first half. However, a French media outlet clarified that Mbappé was not injured. Moreover, the report specifies that Enrique decided to remove the player. 

Football journalist Ben Jacobs reports that there’s no comment from PSG or indication yet as to whether he’ll face punishment. Jacobs adds that the decision will likely come down to Enrique. 

Additionally, PSG sources informed Jacobs that they are baffled by the move, describing it as “surreal” and “ridiculous.”

This momentum isn’t ideal as the team prepares for the second leg against Real Sociedad in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie. It remains to be seen if Enrique will rely on the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner for this crucial match.
