Mbappe’s reduced game time with PSG will benefit France

Kylian Mbappe’s reduced playing time with Paris St Germain in recent weeks could be good news for France as it may keep him fresh for the European Championship and Olympic Games, manager Didier Deschamps said. The France captain has played the full 90 minutes in just three matches since February 14. “It’s important to be physically fresh for a major competition. In any case, all the players will arrive at the end of the season feeling a little tired. If that fatigue can be reduced a little (all the better),” Deschamps said. Mbappe, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, has said he hopes to participate at this summer’s Paris Olympics but a move to the LaLiga leaders may prevent him from doing that. France under-23 coach Thierry Henry said that Real had turned down a request to release players for the Games. “Real Madrid’s stance on the Olympic Games is a bit outdated,” Deschamps said. “But businesspeople are the ones who decide. If it’s not on an official FIFA date, if they say no, the answer is no.” Reuters
