PSG’s Enrique Dodges Mbappe Questions Ahead Of UCL Clash

by Silverbird News24

PSG manager Luis Enrique dodged several questions about Kylian Mbappe’s future at the Ligue 1 club, insisting he was more focused on the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash at LaLiga side Real Sociedad on Tuesday.

France captain Mbappe, the club’s all-time leading goal scorer, has yet to play a full match since he informed PSG that he would leave them as a free agent at the end of this season.

Since coming off the bench to score the winner against Nantes on February 17, the 25-year-old was substituted in two consecutive Ligue 1 games in which PSG were held to draws.

Bombarded with questions about Mbappe, Luis Enrique appeared agitated at times and kept joking with the Uefa translator that he was not really understanding the questions.

Luis Enrique was determined to block out any distractions as PSG, who take a 2-0 lead into the second leg against Real Sociedad, target a place in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Sociedad manager Imanol Alguacil, whose side have been struggling for form in recent weeks, having won only one of their last nine competitive matches, was confident that his side can fight back to knock out the French giants.
