Don't ever believe PSG: Kylian Mbappe is back
If you have to believe someone in this life, don't make that PSG. Julian Nagelsmann might be many things, but one of those is not being a fool. And fooled was he not as Paris Saint-Germain have already welcomed Kylian Mbappe back to the training ground at the Camp des Loges on Sunday morning.
PSG striker and France World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe is the man we're talking about, yes. According to L'Equipe and anyone in attendance boasting a pair of eyes capable of watching things happen in front of them, Mbappe completed part of the collective training session of PSG with the rest of the Parisian players this Sunday. His presence against Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the Champions League is a very real possibility, says L'Equipe.
Perhaps, after all, Nagelsmann's suspicions of PSG lying to the world were right? One has to wonder!
Kylian Mbappe was injured against Montpellier on Feb. 1 and the team ruled him out for nearly a month, which would have meant missing up to six games. After passing some exams, that's obviously a way too cautious prediction made by PSG... and one that Nagelsmann never bought into.
That left hammy got banged up, for sure, but the four weeks turned into three weeks, and now, seemingly and all of a sudden, magically, and just three days from the UCL Round of 16 clash against Bayern Munich... it's turned into a two-week thing!
Our smart man Nagelsmann didn't believe one thing when asked about it yesterday. Of course, he was right then and there. It will be all of Leo Messi, Neymar, Marco Verratti, and Mbappe who will be kicking balls at the Parc des Princes come Tuesday.
Mbappe trained, for the most part, with his teammates who didn't play (or did so for just a few minutes) against Monaco on Saturday. L'Equipe also reports that the forward "continued with individual exercises," after completing a part-time collective session with the group.
This is the first time Mbappe has worked outdoors since his injury, while he was seen “performing exercises other than rehabilitation ones," stating that there is "confidence" among members of the PSG staff about "Kylian Mbappe making it to the gameday squad against Bayern Munich" next Tuesday.
As if anyone ever doubted this happening, and just in case you don't trust us, above you can read our original tweet, published right after the loss at Marseille last Wednesday. Just saying.
