Mbappe to be available against nice, says luis enrique0

Kylian Mbappe, the striker for Paris Saint-Germain, did not play in a friendly match against Germany earlier in the week. However, PSG head coach Luis Enrique stated on Thursday that Mbappe should be available to play against Nice in Ligue 1 on Friday.

After their match against Nice, Paris Saint-Germain will face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday, and then they will play at home against Olympique de Marseille in the league the following weekend. This will be a difficult stretch of games for PSG.

Didier Deschamps, the manager of France, claimed after the game that Mbappe had experienced a knee ailment the day before in training, but the striker did not play in France’s 2-1 loss to Germany on Tuesday. Mbappe was not used as a substitute in the game.

Luis Enrique stated on Thursday during a press conference that “we will analyze him tomorrow in order to find out what is going on.”

This week, he was impacted, that’s for sure. Tomorrow, we will have a conversation to determine whether or not he will be prepared (for Nice). However, I believe that he will.”

After the international break, the Spanish coach stated that it was difficult to prepare for the upcoming game because some of the players had not yet been able to go back into their normal training routine.

“Today, we had the arrival of Manuel Ugarte, who plays midfield, as well as Marquinhos, who plays defense. However, given that we have been working together for the past two months, it is safe to assume that they are familiar with the procedures,” remarked Luis Enrique.

Nice are a very dedicated and hard-working team, and their coach is relatively young but has a lot of experience. They don’t shy away from danger at all. They don’t make any guesses about the outcome, but they are both daring and bold when they have the ball and when they don’t.

On Friday, an homage will be paid to former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti at the Parc des Princes. The 30-year-old Verratti left PSG on Wednesday to sign with the Qatari team Al-Arabi after spending the previous 11 years with the Paris-based club.

Because Verratti will be present before to tomorrow’s game, those in attendance will have the chance to show their respect for the player. It will be a memorable occasion for him as well as for his loved ones.

PSG currently sits in second place in Ligue 1 with eight points after four games, two points behind the league’s leaders AS Monaco and tied with Marseille for third place.
