PSG Boss Luis Enrique Loses His Cool When Asked About Mbappe Substitution

PSG Manager Defends Tactical Decision Amidst Speculation Over Star Player’s Future

Luis Enrique, manager of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), found himself embroiled in controversy after a tense exchange regarding his decision to substitute Kylian Mbappe during PSG’s recent clash against Marseille.

Mbappe, a key figure for PSG, started the match but was replaced in the 64th minute by Goncalo Ramos, a move that elicited a visibly displeased reaction from the star player. Mbappe’s frustration was evident as he reluctantly left the pitch, further underscored by his gesture of removing the captain’s armband.

Enrique, who has faced scrutiny over his handling of Mbappe in previous matches, was pressed by reporters about the substitution during the post-match press conference. The PSG manager, visibly agitated, responded sharply to the question, dismissing it as repetitive and uninteresting.

“It’s the same music every single week, the same music… it’s so boring. I am the manager, I make the decisions every day, every week,” Enrique retorted, expressing his exasperation with the line of questioning. “I am going to do the same until my last day in Paris. I always try to find the best solution for my team. Even if you don’t understand the decision, I don’t care. I don’t care at all.”

Despite Mbappe’s absence from the scoresheet, PSG secured a 2-0 victory over Marseille, with goals from Vitinha and Ramos sealing the win in the highly anticipated Le Classique fixture.
