He continued, “We know the importance of Leo in our style of play, with his absence in the Monaco match, we will have to play in a different way to have a more solid and tighter team structure.”
Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann said earlier: “I can’t believe that Mbappe will miss our match. I expect him to play. I don’t know his injury. The statement on the Paris Saint-Germain website is very vague. I can’t imagine him missing the match.”
