Paris Saint-Germain suffered another injury ahead of next week’s Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta as coach Thomas Tuchel fractured a bone in his foot during a workout, the club said Friday.
Tuchel broke his fifth metatarsal and sprained his left ankle during a “sport session” on Thursday evening, adding another name to PSG’s casualty list that includes Kylian Mbappe, Marco Verratti, Layvin Kurzawa and Thilo Kehrer.
PSG gave no indication whether Tuchel’s injury would affect his status for Wednesday’s tie against Atalanta in Lisbon, which is hosting the latter stages of the Champions League in a unique straight knockout tournament.
Mbappe is a major doubt after injuring his ankle last month in the French Cup final while Italy midfielder Verratti is another concern with a calf problem. Angel Di Maria will miss the quarter-final through suspension.
