According to reports, Kylian Mbappe’s injury, sustained during a match against Marseille, has been confirmed as not serious.
PSG manager Luis Enrique provided this reassuring update following the team’s 4-0 victory over their derby rivals.
During the match, Mbappe limped off the field in the first half after a harsh tackle from Marseille’s Leonardo Balerdi. Concerns arose as Mbappe briefly returned to the pitch but then exited again, heading for the tunnel. Fortunately, Luis Enrique clarified the situation, saying, “It’s not serious, but there was pain. I think it was smarter to go out (subbed off). It’s a blow, he’s fine,” when speaking to reporters after the match.
This news is a significant relief for PSG, as Kylian Mbappe has been in sensational form this season, scoring seven goals in just five Ligue 1 appearances. His presence on the field has been vital for the team’s success, making his injury a cause for concern.
Despite Mbappe’s absence, PSG managed to dominate their rivals with a 4-0 victory. The match saw Achraf Hakimi delivering a fantastic free-kick to open the scoring in the eighth minute, followed by Randal Kolo Muani netting his first goal in PSG colors. In the second half, Goncalo Ramos scored a brace, securing a comprehensive win for the visitors.
Looking ahead, PSG fans can hope to see Mbappe back in action when the team faces Clermont Foot on September 30. Mbappe’s return will be eagerly anticipated as PSG continues its pursuit of success in both domestic and international competitions.
