– It is simple and difficult to explain. We played in the Champions League two days ago, so we needed energy to perform. It was important to give minutes to players who did not participate in that match (Against Real Sociedad). As you know, we have ambitious goals. We need all players, he declared.

Regarding Wednesday's Champions League match, the following starts on Saturday against Nantes: Donnarumma; Danilo Pereira, Zaire Emery, Vitinha and Barcelona. Like Mbappé (who scored Paris Saint-Germain's second goal from a penalty kick), Hakimi and Dembélé came on in the second half.

This Friday, The striker spoke to his fellow stars about this subject. According to the local press, the group's reaction was not surprising. Defender Danilo Pereira confirmed the existence of that conversation with the other players, but said it did not shake the dressing room.

– (Playing without Mbappe) It changes the dynamics, but we have good players who can make a difference. Without Kylian and without Ousmane (Dembélé), it's different. We were not surprised to see him on the bench because he plays a lot. (Mbappe's decision) did not upset the group, I don't think so – commented Danilo Pereira.
