Kylian Mbappe: Luis Enrique happy to focus on the team at Paris Saint-Germain


Paris Saint-Germain boss Luis Enrique refused to discuss Kylian Mbappe’s reported wish to leave the club at the end of the season but insisted the “team comes before all individuals”.

Mbappe is believed to have informed club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he will leave the Parc des Princes at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Real Madrid remain the most likely destination for the France captain with Liverpool and Arsenal also thought to hold a tentative interest.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s Ligue 1 trip to Nantes, Luis Enrique insisted he would not discuss the issue and claimed it was on the club and the player to provide an update.

The former Barcelona boss said: “I have no information to give you.

“Until the parties involved decide, I will not speak on the subject. Kylian Mbappe has not come out publicly, nor have the club. 

“I am the coach. When the parties speak, I will give you my opinion.”

PSG enjoyed a 2-0 win over Real Sociedad in their Champions League round-of-16, first leg clash in midweek while they also sit 11 points clear at the top of Ligue 1. 

And Luis Enrique is determined not to let the matter distract the team from their goals over the remaining weeks of the season.

He added: “We continue to work to be a better team every year.

“It has always been said that the team is above all individuals, that is our policy.

“To be sitting where I am sitting, you must have the personality and experience to know that there are always rumours around the club. If you don’t like that, you can’t be at a club like this.”
