Kylian Mbappé is doing better.
Forced to give up the semi-final second leg of the Champions League last Tuesday against Manchester City (0-2 defeat), the Parisian striker must return to Montpellier next Wednesday in the Coupe de France.
It remains to be seen whether it will be in the shoes of a holder or as a replacement.
But reassuring news on his state of health came yesterday from the Camp des Loges where the world champion found his way back to training with his partners after a day of rest.
Mbappé was able to continue to treat his injured right calf there in the first leg against Manchester City (defeat 1-2).
The healing of his contracture is progressing favorably and the top scorer in the championship (25 goals in Ligue 1) must quickly find the training grounds.
Suspended Sunday for the trip to Rennes, the former Monegasque will also remain at the Loges camp this weekend to complete his rehabilitation.

His expected return to Hérault will come two weeks after his injury during the first leg against the Citizens. And this news is welcomed as a positive sign by the PSG still engaged on two fronts: the championship and the Coupe de France. Facing the Mancuniens, the Parisian staff argued the precautionary principle with a player still disabled and unable to accelerate. Especially since after the end of the season with his club, Kylian Mbappé has a Euro - his first - to dispute with the Blues. It would have been a shame that an injury more serious than a simple contracture spoiled the end of a promising second part of exercise.
