Zapping Our Mondial TOP 10: The most profitable transfers in history
“He had just played a lot of straight games. There was a little fatigue. We found it appropriate to give him a little rest ”. Saturday evening, after the draw for PSG on the lawn of Lens (1-1), Mauricio Pochettino spoke about his choice to place Kylian Mbappé on the sidelines at the start of the match.
A choice which did not prevent Mbappé from being decisive. It is he who allowed Wijnaldum to equalize in extremis to Bollaert by depositing a caviar on the head of the Dutch midfielder. Mbappé, in any case, begins to stick his tongue out, he who has rarely been spared since the start of the season.
Mbappé holder despite his fatigue in Lens?
However, it is obviously not in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans to save him for long. As explained by L’Equipe in today’s edition, despite the fact that PSG’s match against Bruges, tomorrow in the Champions League, has no sporting stakes (Paris is certain to finish second in its group even though it happens), the Argentine coach should indeed start the French striker, as well as Lionel Messi who, for his part, needs to find automatisms in a team where he has not yet found his place.
Even if PSG will play a match without any real sporting issue against Bruges, Mauricio Pochettino should take a small risk. Even if Kylian Mbappé has given some signs of fatigue lately, he should indeed be established.
