The 21-year-old French attacker Thomas Tuchel recently suffered a horrible injury in the match against Saint-Etienne in the Coupe de France final. And now, Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel believes that he needs a miracle and hopes for Kylian Mbappe’s speedy recovery following his last Friday’s ankle injury.
The French club Paris Saint-Germain will soon encounter the Serie A side in their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal match on 12th August. And before that, Tuchel wants everyone to be fit to deliver their best performance. However, it is highly unlikely for Kylian Mbappe to regain his utmost fitness until that time.
Thomas Tuchel needs a miracle as he hopes for Kylian Mbappe’s speedy recovery
Thomas Tuchel’s team PSG is going to face Lyon in the Coupe de la Ligue final tonight. And before that match, he told reporters, “This will have an important influence for us, but I hope that the solution will be found.” He added, “We still hope [he can play against Atalanta], but the chances will be very, very small. Every day counts to achieve a miracle, but tomorrow we will have to adapt without Kylian.”
He said, “He was very strong in the first friendlies, he is always very strong with Neymar, Kylian and Angel Di Maria. He likes to play with all three,” and added, “He matches the characteristics of the team. It is not necessary for him not to touch the ball too many times. He can wait. He has a lot of patience. It’s up to everyone to improve, not just him. He will improve and he can play better. He works a lot defensively, he is disciplined, he is important for us.”

The PSG manager said, “If we don’t play enough for him, we can tell that he is not in good shape but it is not like that. He remains the same player as when he arrived. He always wants to score and it is also our goal to give him good balls to score. He remains important for us.”
He said, “It is not possible to tactically prepare for Atalanta in a match against Lyon.” The manager then added, “I don’t know a team that plays like Atalanta. We can just work on our state of mind and show our hunger to win. This will prepare us from this point of view if we get a good result tomorrow.”
