Herrera hopeful over Mbappe’s return as PSG face Champions League showdown

Ander Herrera remains optimistic that Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Kylian Mbappe will return to the Champions League in time.

During the final of the Coupe de France against Saint-Etienne on 24 July, Mbappe suffered an ankle injury, with the club revealing the “serious” sprain likely to keep the 21-year-old out for three weeks.

France International watched as PSG finished a domestic clean sweep on Friday, securing victory over a penalty shoot-out against Lyon in the last ever Coupe de la Ligue final.

On the eve of the contest, Thomas Tuchel had said that Mbappe required a “miracle” to be ready for the quarter-final clash with Atalanta on August 12, in Lisbon.
