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