Kylian Mbappé refused 10 days rest to return to PSG

According to L’Équipe, France star Kylian Mbappé had refused the 10 days rest which was given to him by the management team of Paris Saint-Germain, instead arriving yesterday morning to training only 3 days following the 2022 World Cup final between France and Argentina. 

The player, who just turned 24, met with manager Christophe Galtier and Luís Campos on Monday to affirm his desire to get to training as soon as possible – saying that he felt good both “mentally” and “physically”. He then arrived to PSG’s training ground at Camp des Loges yesterday. 

RMC Sport reported this morning that it is likely the Frenchman will be involved against Strasbourg on the 28th December at the Parc des Princes, before the Parisians travel to second placed Lens on New Years day. Whilst Brazilians Neymar and Marquinhos returned to PSG training today, there is not yet a set date for the return of Lionel Messi to the club – as he celebrates captaining Argentina’s third ever World Cup win back home.
