Despite the three weeks of unavailability announced by PSG, some want to believe in an express recovery for Kylian Mbappé, who injured his thigh on Wednesday during the match against Montpellier.
Christophe Galtier had nevertheless wanted to be optimistic. Asked after the meeting against Montpellier, marked by the injury of Kylian Mbappé after only twenty minutes of play, the Parisian coach was confident. “It doesn’t seem very serious,” he confided, explaining that his star player had taken a hit on the muscle.
The examinations carried out this Thursday morning revealed a completely different truth. ” After examinations, Kylian Mbappé suffers from a lesion of the left thigh at the level of the femoral bicepsthus informed the PSG, before communicating the duration of his absence: “His downtime is estimated at 3 weeks. » The Parisian striker is therefore forfeited for the first leg at Bayern Munich on February 14.
However, some do not despair of seeing the former Monegasque on his feet for the shock against the German champions. This is the case of Jimmy Algerino, convinced that the Bondynois, who does everything faster than the others, can also recover quickly. ” As he is an extraordinary player, and an extraordinary kid, one can imagine that he could recover in an extraordinary way from an injury like this. For the little information that I was able to have with a medical staff, there is a small possibility that he may be on the bench or at least on the score sheet on February 14, he assured the microphone of Europe 1. It’s very light as it’s muscular and you have to see how the healing will happen, that it happens in the best way while trying to keep cardio and muscle. It’s tricky, because all it takes is an unfortunate gesture to remove the fibers or even a compensation. It remains very problematic, but there is always this small hope that he will be on the scoresheet on February 14. »
