Mbappe Will Be Out For 3 Weeks & Misses UCL Against Atalanta
PSG have confirmed that Mbappe will be out for 3 weeks and misses UCL against Atalanta
The forward suffered a nasty tackle in the first half of PSG’s Coupe de France final victory over Saint-Etienne on Friday night, and took part in the trophy celebrations after the 1-0 win while on crutches.
A PSG statement on the club website said: “As announced after the final of the Coupe de France against Saint-Etienne, Kylian Mbappe was examined on Monday in order to know the severity of his right ankle injury.
“The examination performed today confirms a sprained ankle with external ligament injury. Following this, the recovery time is estimated at around three weeks.”
This means Mbappe is expected not to be fit in time to face Atalanta on August 12, although he could return for the semi-finals and final of the Champions League tournament held in Lisbon, should PSG make it that far.
