Emery Hoping For Healthy Mbappe After Neymar Blow
Unai Emery is hoping the knock sustained by Kylian Mbappe will not keep him out of the second leg against Madrid.
PSG might have to do without the youngster against Madrid, with Neymar to miss the match, after fracturing his metatarsal.
Mbappe asked to be brought off in the 3-0 win over Marseille, after taking a knock to his ankle and Emery hopes it is a minor injury.
“He got a blow to his ankle,” Emery told reporters. “He asked not to play in the second half and I hope it’s not very important.”
“We have to keep working together, to have confidence and to preserve the competition and the performance,” Emery said.
“Today, we saw that the team and the players who played were good. I’m going to think about [Saturday’s game against] Troyes, then Real.
“But I have confidence in the players that I have. I hope to have all the players ready, whether they start or come off the bench during the match.”
