“Kylian has prepared himself well for tomorrow’s game.” – replied Pochettino when asked if Mbappe will play the game. He also went onto confirm that the club and its sporting director is very clear about the situation regarding the 22-year-old.
However, the off-field events did not have much effect on Mbappe as he was part of the team against Reims. The French superstar started the match and scored both the goals as PSG won their 4th straight match in the French top flight.
The game also was special, as Lionel Messi made his first appearance as a PSG player. In a shocking transfer, Messi moved on a free to Paris from Barcelona a few days back. The Argentine came on as a substitute for Neymar in the 66th minute of the match.
