PSG coach Luis Enrique came out to explain the reason why Kylian Mbappe was used as a substitute in the latest match.

Paris Saint-Germain defeated Nantes 2-0 in Ligue 1 on Saturday night, with PSG now ahead on 53 points from 22 games played. Second place 14 points ทางเข้า UFABET 

However, French media did not fail to inquire about Mbappe being only a substitute and being sent on in the 62nd minute. With the 25-year-old striker scoring from the penalty spot in the 78th minute.

“It’s easy to explain but one aspect is difficult to explain,” the Spaniard said.

“There was a Champions League game between us last week and we needed the energy to fight on the pitch. We also have to give playing time to players who are not playing in Europe.

“Our goals are ambitious and I want every player to be involved in their success. Tonight (Saturday) was a difficult game because Nantes defended very well.

“This is also necessary when we want to win every championship. The attitude shown is very good. Every player is important to the team. I think so.”

PSG are now unbeaten in 18 Ligue 1 matches away from home, equalling their club-record streak.

Nantes have lost four successive home games in Ligue 1 for the first time in their history.
