Rio Mavuba comes to the aid of Luis Enrique regarding Mbappé


By: Manu Tournoux

Luis Enrique has been making a lot of noise in recent days. Not only for his positive results (20 consecutive matches without defeat) but especially for his sporting choices. This Friday, on the AS Monaco pitch, the Spanish technician made strong choices.

Starting at kick-off on the left wing and captain of the team, Kylian Mbappé was taken out at half-time by his coach. The Frenchman’s performance would not have convinced the former manager of FC Barcelona.

A decision which surprised all observers who did not understand this decision. This Sunday, on the show Telefootformer French international Rio Mavuba spoke about the “controversies” affecting the boss of the Parisian club.

For him, the Spaniard is right to assert himself and make strong choices within the Parisian team. “Luis Enrique is right. The PSG coach has often been criticized for not asserting himself, especially with the stars. But it shouldn’t work against PSG either. He has a collective project, he must assert himself. The only one who can solve this problem is Mbappé by finding his best level,” he added.

Which team this Tuesday against Real Sociedad?

This Tuesday, the Parisians must not miss out on the pitch of Real Sociedad during the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League. With a two-goal lead at kick-off, Luis’ men will have to manage their lead and try to score this goal which would open the doors to the quarter-finals.

For this meeting, the Spaniard should field a team quite similar to the one which won in the first leg.

The probable 11th of PSG: Donnarumma – Hakimi, Mukiele, Beraldo, Lucas Hernandez – Fabian Ruiz, Vitinha, Zaire-Emery – Dembélé, Mbappé, Barcola
