“We have to get used to not playing with Kylian” – PSG coach on early substitution of Mbappe


Paris St-Germain manager Luis Enrique emphasised the need for his team to adapt to playing without Kylian Mbappe following the striker’s substitution during the draw against Rennes.

Mbappe, who has confirmed his move to Real Madrid in the summer, was replaced in the 65th minute after being unable to increase his tally of 21 goals for the season.

“We have to get used to not playing with Kylian, sooner or later, it’s going to happen,” Enrique said.

“When I consider it appropriate, he will play or not play, as all coaches do with their players.

“I want maximum competitiveness for next season. I want every starting player in this PSG team to think that this is a great opportunity. That’s what I’m looking for this season and next season.”

Goncalo Ramos secured a vital point for the Ligue 1 frontrunners with a stoppage-time penalty, levelling the score after Amine Gouiri’s first-half goal had given Rennes the lead.
