The injury suffered by Kylian Mbappé, who came out in tears during the French Cup final won 1-0 by the PSG against Saint-Etienne, is serious.
Mbappé reported a "sprained right ankle with a significant injury to the external lateral compartment," PSG announced in a press release. No recovery times are estimated, but the diagnosis is still a blow to the team that will play the League Cup final against Lyon on Friday, but above all it is preparing the Champions League quarter-finals in Lisbon, which will play on August 12 against Atalanta .
The French striker suffered a foul from Perrin , with his ankle making an unnatural movement. While the champion was writhing in pain, on the ground, a furious fight broke out on the field that involved almost all the protagonists on the field. Mbappé then left the pitch in tears.
“I felt a little crack. I don't think it's broken ”are the words of hope addressed by the footballer to the President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron at the time of the award ceremony (reported by a French TV).
Back in the locker room, Mbappé then returned to the bench with crutches and an ankle brace in the second half and eventually participated in the awarding of the PSG for the trophy he had just won. "I'm really worried," the words of French team manager Thomas Tuchel. Fear then confirmed by the exams. (sources GAZZETTA DELLO SPORT)
