Mbappé came out injured on the lawn of Club Brugge on Wednesday in the Champions League. “He trained with the group (Saturday morning), taking some precautions,” said the Argentine technician to the press, from the PSG training center in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. “We are happy with the progress. We will see tomorrow (Sunday) if he will be in the group or not.”
The 22-year-old center-forward, scorer of four this season, was injured Wednesday at Club Brugge (1-1) in the Champions League. “Poche” explained after the meeting that he had “twisted an ankle a little”.
Defenders Sergio Ramos (calf) and Juan Bernat (recovery), as well as Italian midfielder Marco Verratti (knee), remain in the infirmary for the poster for the 6th day of Ligue 1, PSG said in a statement.
For the former, who still hasn’t played a minute in his new shirt, including friendlies, Pochettino said he was “optimistic” about the chances of seeing him play “soon”.
This match will also be the first at home for Lionel Messi in his new Parisian jersey.
