The fate of Mbappe's participation in the St. Germain and Manchester City summit revealed

Kylian Mbappe, the star of Paris Saint-Germain, is preparing to lead his team during the upcoming confrontation with Manchester City, next Wednesday, in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final despite injury.

Mbappe scored two goals to lead Saint-Germain to victory at Metz Stadium 3-1, on Saturday evening, and climb to the top of the French League, but he suffered a bruise during the match.

"It is a shock to the team," said Mauricio Pochettino, coach of St Germain, "It is a shock to the team. I do not think it is a major injury. We hope it is not dangerous."

He added, "I do not think that he faces the possibility of missing out on Wednesday's confrontation. It is just a shock, but it does not give us the impression that he will miss City's confrontation."

The Argentine coach concluded by saying, "Kilian was calm at the moment of his change, but despite this, the injury was painful."
