Paris Saint-Germain boss, Thomas Tuchel, revealed after the Coupe de France final against Stade Rennes on Saturday that club star, Kylian Mbappe, had some problems heading into the clash at the Stade de France which Rennes won via penalty shoot-out.

Brazilian duo Dani Alves and Neymar had given the newly crowned French Ligue 1 champions a 2-0 lead after just 21 minutes. However, Presnel Kimpembe’s 40th minute own goal and Mexer’s equaliser just after the hour mark ensured the game would head to extra time.

But just before the end of extra time, Tuchel saw Mbappe get sent off with a straight red card and after both teams had scored their first five penalties each, Christoph Nkunku saw his spot kick saved as Rennes became French Cup champions.

And it has been revealed by Tuchel that Mbappe had some problems coming into the match on Saturday and was eventually sent off for a poor high challenge on Damien Da Silva. “Mbappe had many opportunities to be decisive. He had some problems on Friday, he stopped the last training because of some muscular problems,” Tuchel said to reporters after the match.

He also commented on what turned out to be a shock result, saying “We had a lot of chances throughout the game. But after leading 2-0 it’s hard to explain. For me it is a great disappointment to lose the second half 1-0. I have no explanation.”

Failure to win the French Cup puts pressure on Tuchel, having also failed to deliver in the Champions League this season but the former Borussia Dortmund manager brushed off speculation he would quit.
