Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel said "everyone is worried" after Kylian Mbappe hobbled off in the first half of Friday's French Cup final with an ankle injury after a awful tackle by Saint-Etienne captain Loic Perrin.

The former Monaco forward then reemerged from the dressing room during the closing stages of the second half on crutches.

Perrin was initially booked for the challenge but after consulting the VAR monitor, referee Amaury Delerue made a decision to upgrade his punishment to a red card, the third time Saint-Etienne have had a player sent off in the first half in a game against PSG this season.

But the match was more notable for a 23rd-minute incident in which Loic Perrin hacked down Mbappe, forcing the French World Cup victor to leave the field in tears. "Of course I'm anxious", said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel after his team's 1-0 win.

Ligue 1 champions PSG did not say if Mbappe will feature in Friday's French League Cup final against Olympique Lyonnais.

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini said he was "sorry" to hear of Mbappe's injury and hoped it was "nothing serious" ahead of next month's European clash. I'm very happy of course that we won but now we have to stay calm and wait for the news (on his injury).
