As Mbappe edges closer to joining Real Madrid, Enrique also opted to mirror his decision to substitute the France captain, for the second game in a row.

Enrique confirmed it was for an injury precaution but the former Barcelona boss was irked by the ongoing focus on Mbappe.

“When I consider it appropriate he will play, and when I do not, he won’t, like all coaches do”, as per quotes from Marca.

“Again, at some point we will have to learn to play without Kylian.”

Mbappe is expected to recover for PSG’s midweek Champions League trip to Real Socieded with Enrique’s charges holding a 2-0 first leg lead.
