Ahead of the highly anticipated Le Classique showdown between Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain, speculation mounts as Kylian Mbappe’s starting position remains uncertain. PSG manager Luis Enrique’s cryptic remarks add fuel to the speculation, hinting at a potential benching for the superstar forward.

Despite Mbappe’s pivotal role in PSG’s lineup, Enrique has sporadically sidelined him, including in recent matches against Reims. With rumors swirling about Mbappe’s future, particularly a speculated move to Real Madrid, his absence from the starting eleven raises eyebrows.

However, Mbappe has responded emphatically to previous benchings, showcasing his prowess with standout performances, notably a hat-trick against Montpellier. Luis Enrique, while acknowledging dissenting opinions, emphasizes his commitment to team success and the importance of competitive spirit against eternal rivals Marseille.

As the spotlight intensifies on Enrique’s selection strategy and Mbappe’s role, anticipation builds for the Le Classique clash. Whether Mbappe will feature from the start or be relegated to the bench remains a tantalizing question, adding an extra layer of intrigue to this historic rivalry.
