PSG SD Leonardo cautious on Kylian Mbappé & the Olympics: “We need to protect our player.”

Speaking to RMC Sport in Nyon at the Champions’ League Round of 16 draw, in which PSG drew with Borussia Dortmund, Les Parisiens’ Sporting Director Leonardo was asked about Kylian Mbappé’s possible participation at next summer’s Olympic Games.

“We need to manage our player well, we need to protect our player, not expose him too much. A player like Mbappé must be protected and defended. He needs rest, we will speak calmly (with the FFF) but we will consider all the aspects. We have a clear and direct relationship with the federation and with President Le Graët, of course we will speak about that. But it is always difficult. Today the schedule is very packed, for everyone. Sadly there is a difficulty because there are too many matches in a season, the players are really very occupied. We see the injuries.”
