PSG doubts Kylian Mbappe Champions league return against Atalanta

PSG doubts Kylian Mbappe Champions league return against AtalantaKylian Mbappe subbed off in the first half of the French Cup after a ghastly tackle by Saint-Etienne skipper Loic Perrin. 

French League Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe is not sure for the Champions League to return in the wake of enduring a lower leg injury during the French Cup match.

The French Champions confirmed on Saturday that Mbappe limped off down after an appalling tackle by Saint-Etienne skipper Loic Perrin. Also, after tests, PSG uncovered that their 21-year-old star had "a hyper-extended right lower leg with critical tendon harm". The news is a significant blow for PSG with Mbappe out of next Friday's French League Cup final and probably not going to be fit in an ideal opportunity for the following month's Champions League quarter-final match against Atalanta in Lisbon. 

He got treatment yet was in the end subbed after the tackle which earned Perrin a red card. 

"Everybody is concerned. Each and every individual who saw the foul is concerned. Obviously, I'm stressed," said PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel after his group's 1-0 win. 

"It cracked a piece without a doubt," Mbappe was heard on camera disclosing to French President Emmanuel Macron who was in the game since the coronavirus lockdown. 

PSG face Lyon in the French League Cup final before continuing their European battle in a straight knockout competition at the Estadio da Luz on August 12. 

Mbappe's injury remembers the wounds that constrained Neymar, scorer in Friday's game, who also missed Champions League last-16 ties in both 2018 and 2019. 

Paris Saint-Germain head coach Thomas Tuchel said "everybody is concerned" after Kylian Mbappe limped off in the first half of Friday's French Cup.
 
"We must show restraint since we don't have any news. I figure he will experience tests today around evening time." 

A mournful Mbappe was supplanted by Pablo Sarabia however the more noteworthy worry for PSG will be the seriousness of his physical issue in front of the following month's Champions League quarter-last against Atalanta in Lisbon.
