PSG: Mbappé returns after three-match ban
PSG star Kylian Mbappé spoke to the media ahead of his side's penultimate league fixture against Dijon on Saturday, where they will be handed the Ligue 1 trophy.
Kylian Mbappé will return to action for PSG against Dijon on Saturday after seeing out a three-game sanction handed to him for a reckless red card in the Coupe de France final on 27 April.
With the scored tied at 2-2 and deep into extra time, the PSG striker was given his marching orders after his studs caught the knee of Rennes Damien Da Silva. Rennes eventually ran out winners after a penalty shootout, ending PSG’s hopes of a league and cup double.
But despite heartbreak in the Cup and following their shock Champions League elimination at the hands of Manchester United, Mbappé said the team were satisfied with their season and would proudly celebrate their Ligue 1 success with their fans at the Parc de Princes stadium following the Dijon game, the penultimate fixture of season.
Mbappé: "Everything hasn't been perfect"
"Winning the league title was part of our objectives at the beginning of the season, I am very happy because we work hard to experience these moments, we are very happy," he said.
"We have made one of the best seasons in the history of Ligue 1, everything has not been perfect, but we have had a great championship, without getting confused with the other competitions... We are going to celebrate this title with our fans, sharing this trophy with them is something beautiful.”
PSG are currently 12 points ahead of second-placed LOSC and have had the league mathematically wrapped since their 3-1 win over Monaco on 21 April.
