PARIS: Paris St Germain forward Kylian Mbappe suffered an ankle sprain in Friday’s French Cup final win over St Etienne.
The club said that his injury will be reassessed in three days’ time.
A rough tackle from Loic Perrin saw the St Etienne defender catch Mbappe on the ankle and the 21-year-old collapsed on the pitch in pain before he was substituted, Reuters reported.
Perrin was sent off for the challenge as PSG won 1-0.
The club said that he has suffered serious right ankle sprain to the external lateral compartment and will be re-evaluated in 72 hours with clinical and ankle imaging analysis.
