Again. Assailed with questions about Kylian Mbappé, Luis Enrique had the opportunity to deliver a lunar show last Monday, during the press conference on the eve of Real Sociedad-PSG (1-2), in the Champions League. Since then, said Mbappé has put everyone in agreement with a double against the Basque club on Tuesday. It remains to be seen whether Luis Enrique will change his mind in terms of management. Asked about starting the 25-year-old striker against Reims on Sunday (1 p.m.), during the 25th day of Ligue 1, the Spanish coach once again chose derision: “We will see depending on the time that “the weather is hot or not (smile).”

Remember that Luis Enrique’s change in management came after the announcement of Mbappé’s upcoming departure, at the end of the season and his contract. After Real Sociedad, the former Barça coach said this: “I didn’t find out about him today… You know what I think of him. It’s the best in the world. He would score 50 goals and provide 25 assists with any coach, at any club. Apparently his immediate future will not be here, so we will have to test other players. Clearly, “Lucho” should continue to use “KM” sparingly. At least in Ligue 1, where PSG has a significant lead in the standings. To see for the Coupe de France and the quarter-final against Nice, Wednesday (9:10 p.m.), and of course the Champions League (quarter draw on March 15).

Note that Kylian Mbappé spoke of “problems” affecting him after the Real Sociedad match. “I have many problems, but the coach is not one of them,” assured the captain of the Blues. Enigmatic statement. And it’s not Luis Enrique who will unravel the mystery in front of the media: “I haven’t asked him what his problems are to be honest.” Of which act. Whether on Lucas Beraldo, Vitinha, the pressure in C1, Gigio Donnarumma or the Stade de Reims, Luis Enrique demonstrated on Saturday, at a press conference, that he can be verbose and interesting. He also confirmed what we had already understood: he has no desire to speak about Kylian Mbappé.
