Mbappé, the strong words of Galtier

Present at a press conference on the eve of the match against Toulouse, Christophe Galtier was questioned about the management of Kylian Mbappé, while his star joined the infirmary.

This is certainly the big tile of the week: less than two weeks before the knockout stages of the Champions League against Bayern Munich, Kylian Mbappé has joined the Paris Saint-Germain infirmary. Injured in the thigh against Montpellier, the French world champion begins a period of absence estimated at three weeks. Was this scenario avoidable? The question was put to Christophe Galtier at a press conference.

Galtier on the management of Mbappé: “We took a lot of precautions”

The PSG coach believes that the technical staff has taken all the necessary precautions to protect his star, also underlining the very unique context of this season. ” I think we took a lot of precautions when Kylian came back, he explained on the eve of the match against Toulouse, this Saturday (5:00 p.m.). Of course, I read you, I watch you. The debate is whether he played straight after the World Cup. But after his two post-World Cup matches, he had 12 days off. »

“He then gradually returned to matches where there was not a lot of intensity to both find rhythm and his bearings with the team, continued Galtier. This injury happened on contact which generated poor support and muscle damage. I don’t think Kylian played too much. From the moment you play, there is always an element of risk. We are in a unique season, there was a World Cup in the middle, added the technician. In many other clubs, especially those where there are many internationals, there are injuries. […] First of all, we are unhappy for Kylian, he is a competitor, he wants to be present all the time, ”concluded the PSG coach.
