PSG forward Kylian Mbappe continues to struggle with ankle injury
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is closely monitoring the fitness of star player Kylian Mbappé ahead of Wednesday’s match against Newcastle United in the champions league. The 24-year-old forward, who recently made a comeback after suffering an ankle injury against Olympique de Marseille on September 24, showed his toughness by playing an entire 90 minutes against Clermont Foot this past Saturday.
Worries remain over Mbappé’s fitness, as he is not yet physically fit, according to L’Equipe. The three weeks without competitive activity have taken their toll on his form and conditioning, causing concerns about his optimal performance level in the upcoming UEFA Champions League match.
Mbappé n’est pas encore à 100% physiquement explique son entourage.
Preuve du déficit athlétique des «lofteurs», les visites médicales de certains joueurs cédés ont parfois révélé d’étonnantes carences physiques. Mbappé paye clairement ces trois semaines sans rythme.

Despite his bold attempts, Mbappé’s undermined physical condition may limit his ability to significantly affect the match. PSG will need the winger to be at his best against Newcastle United on Matchday 2 of the Champions League.
The Frenchman’s likely struggle to attain full fitness might work in the Magpies’ favor, improving them in their defensive plans against the renowned striker. As the football world awaits this fascinating battle, fans and experts alike will be watching carefully to see how Mbappé manages this challenge and whether his presence on the field can have a decisive influence for the French team.
