A little over two weeks after his thigh injury and his premature exit to Nantes on October 31 (3-0 victory for PSG), Kylian Mbappé (21) will certainly play again this Tuesday evening with the Blues. Didier Deschamps confirmed at a press conference on Monday that the PSG striker, forfeited in the last two meetings against Finland (0-2) and Portugal (1-0), has regained all his physical capacities and that he is applying for a place in the French team opposed to Sweden.
The world champion also participated in the last training session and the opposition without problem. “Kylian is fine. We did things gradually to get him to be available, confirmed the coach. It has been 15 days since he had the right to the ball and the game, and he really wants to play. He could have been against Portugal but it was too fair. He wanted to be there for this game tomorrow and if all goes well, he will. The boss of the Blues therefore suggests that it is the Parisian who insisted on staying until the end of this gathering.
Holder at kick-off?
Unless there are bad feelings on waking up on Tuesday, the top scorer in Ligue 1 in 2019 and 2020 will thus start the match (the most likely option) or, at least, enter during the game. “There are both options. with their advantages and disadvantages, insists Deschamps who will discuss this point with his striker. I’ll take the time to chat with Kylian, and decide based on what’s best for him and the team. “
It seems obvious that the number 10 of the Blues will not play the entirety of this game without a stake. It would be taking too big a risk with a player who has not played a minute for 17 days and who has already lived through the last complicated months, with an ankle injury this summer followed by an interruption of competition after having contracted the Covid-19 in September.
This possibility of making him play an entire match would not fail to revive tensions with the management of PSG, while relations have calmed down in recent weeks. The dialogue between the two parties is intended to be constructive, as is the case between the capital club and the other selections whether Italy or Brazil who have decided to let Neymar and Kean return to them. days. Of course, PSG would also have preferred to recover Mbappé. But Paris does not take a dim view of a return to the field of its attacker if the latter feels good physically. This would allow Mbappé to regain a little rhythm before Monaco, this Friday, and especially Leipzig next Tuesday. On condition of avoiding relapse.
