<p><strong>Less playing time for Mbappe at PSG will help France</strong></p>
<p>According to manager Didier Deschamps, Kylian Mbappe’s decreased playing time with Paris St. Germain in recent weeks may be advantageous for France since it will keep him fresh for the European Championship and Olympic Games. Since February 14, the France captain has only appeared for the whole 90 minutes in three games. “Being physically fit is crucial before a big tournament. Either way, by the time the season ends, every player will be a bit worn out.</p>
<p>Deschamps said, “It would be beneficial if that tiredness could be somewhat lessened.” Mbappe, who has been linked to a move to Real Madrid, has said that he aspires to compete in the Olympics in Paris this summer, but a transfer to the La Liga leaders may make that impossible. Thierry Henry, the coach of France’s under-23 team, said that Real had denied a request to release players for the Games. Deschamps said, “Real Madrid’s stance on the Olympic Games is a bit outdated.” However, businesses make the final decisions. If they say no and it’s not on a FIFA-official date, then the answer is no. Reuters</p>
