PSG's Mbappe a doubt for Champions League clash with Atalanta

Kylian Mbappe left the field in tears after suffering a horrific ankle injury during Paris Saint-Germain vs. Saint Etienne.

He was injured by a horrendous tackle from Loic Perrin before the half hour mark, but the player and PSG are relieved as the first diagnosis is less serious than feared.

Mbappe received lengthy treatment but was eventually substituted after his right ankle was caught by a clumsy Perrin challenge that resulted in a red card for the centre-back in likely his final game for Saint-Etienne.

"Everyone is anxious. Everyone who saw the foul is anxious".

The 21-year-old took no further part in the game and limped around as his team celebrated the 1-0 win, thanks to Neymar's solo effort.

Mbappe later returned to the bench on crutches with one leg in a brace, and seems a major doubt for PSG's Champions League clash with Atalanta in Portugal next month. "I think he will undergo tests tonight".

PSG face Lyon in the French League Cup final before resuming their European campaign in a straight knockout tournament at the Estadio da Luz on Aug 12.

PSG captain Silva was glad to secure the silverware but is hoping Mbappe is not sidelined for too long.

The club have confirmed that Mbappe has sprained his right ankle, but have offered no hints as to whether he will be fit for their Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta next month.
