PSG manager Galtier provides update on Mbappe & Ramos injury

Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier says Kylian Mbappe's injury is not very serious after he left the pitch against Montpellier.

Paris Saint-Germain

beat Montpellier 3-1 in the Ligue 1 on Wednesday to stay 5 points clear at the top of the table.

Kylian Mbappe

who missed a penalty left the pitch in the 21st minute due to an injury.

Sergio Ramos

also was forced off with an injury in the first half.


After the game, Galtier was asked about the injuries to Mbappe and Ramos.

"We will see. Obviously they are two important players. On what we saw at half-time and what we said to each other, there is not too much worry.

"Kylian took a blow behind the knee and on the muscle. Is it a contusion, a hematoma. We don't know yet. With the sequence of matches, we prefer not to take any risks.

"Sergio, when falling, hurt his adductor. We think it's not serious. He preferred to come off and not take any risks regarding the discomfort."

PSG will host Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 on 14 February.

Galtier admitted that he is under pressure to deliver the club's first Champions League.

"Yes, automatically when you sign for PSG, there is an obligation to win,"

he said.

"The Champions League requires you to be ready. We have players coming back, and we've just had a World Cup. I knew before coming that there was pressure."

PSG was close to signing Hakim Ziyech from Chelsea on the transfer deadline day, but the transfer collapsed due to paperwork issues.

Galtier said:

"You know it. We wanted to replace the departure of Pablo Sarabia.

"Unfortunately, it didn't happen but it's the quirks of the transfer window – you have to accept it."
