Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery says striker Kylian Mbappe asked to be substituted against Marseille due to an ankle injury.

Kylian Mbappe sustained an ankle injury during a Coupe de France quarter-final win against Marseille, but Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery hopes the problem is not serious.

Neymar out; Mbappé takes knock

PSG have already been dealt a severe blow to their hopes of overturning a two-goal deficit against Real Madrid in the Champions League due to Neymar's injury.

The Brazilian requires surgery on a fractured metatarsal, with Emery having previously said Neymar would not have an operation and had a "small chance" of facing Madrid.

Neymar will now certainly miss the second leg at the Parc des Princes on March 6, but Emery is upbeat about Mbappe's chances of making a speedy recovery after the striker's withdrawal at half-time in a 3-0 Classique win.

"He got a blow to his ankle," Emery told reporters. "He asked not to play in the second half and I hope it's not very important."
