Here’s what Thomas Tuchel had to say
“We’re going to kill the players,” he warned 24 hours before Mbappe left Stade de la Beaujoire grimacing.
“That’s what I’ve always said. We are going to kill them because there is an important link between preparation, performance and rest.
“In football it always falls on the greatest players because they will always play for their country.
“They play during the break, they travel and that’s too much in my opinion. They don’t have a recovery phase to allow them to come back and a preparation phase.
“That is not a secret, it happens in sport. Preparation influences injuries and performance.
“Without preparation, players are more fragile and difficult to manage. This is not an excuse, this is the truth. We are going to look for solutions and I hope we will find some.”
Mbappe who has 7 goals and 5 assists to his name has been busy with club and international matches.
