What if Kylian Mbappé watches OM-PSG from the bench? Luis Enrique didn’t rule it out in Saturday’s press conference.

PSG has commitments. The Coupe de France, the Champions League, but also… Kylian Mbappé’s departure to Real Madrid next summer. Therefore, Luis Enrique manages the number 7 forward and might just start Paris against OM without Mbappé this Sunday evening.

“Everything is possible in life. I am aware of the importance of the Classique for the fans. Our goal is to win this match. As the team’s manager, I must have an overall vision of the team. There will be people who won’t agree,” said Luis Enrique on Saturday.

Health Comes First

“For me, this is the ideal situation. A player who theoretically isn’t in the starting eleven contributes to the team’s victory, so much the better. I handle this on an individual basis.”

Another important point: managing players’ health. “The schedule is very intense. Health is important. Injuries, pressure, sometimes it’s hard to handle. The more rested the players are, the better their performances.”
