Paris Saint-Germain head coach Luis Enrique has lauded Kylian Mbappe for returning to training ‘in a good state of mind’ after uncertainty over his future at the club.
Mbappe wasn’t included in the squad for PSG’s goalless draw with Lorient on the opening day of the season.
The striker had been made to train with PSG’s ‘undesirables’ away from the main group after refusing to sign a contract extension, with his current deal having less than a year remaining.
However, he was back in first-team training last Sunday and could be in contention to feature against Toulouse this weekend.
Enrique heaped praise on Mbappe’s mindset as he claimed to be ‘very happy’ to have a ‘world class’ player in the Frenchman.

‘Kylian Mbappe is perfect from what I saw in training’, Enrique said via Fabrizio Romano.
‘He has a lot of desire and and is in a very good state of mind. I’m very happy to have a world-class player like Kylian’.
Mbappe didn’t take part in PSG’s pre-season tour of Asia and there had been suggestions that he would be made to stay away from the main group for the foreseeable future.
His shirts were also removed from the club shop, as the hierarchy in Paris attempt to force the 24-year-old to accept a permanent deal or loan move that would see the club get some return on their £250million asset.
Earlier this summer Mbappe turned down the chance to join Al-Hilal after the Saudi Arabian side made a world record bid of £259million.
There have been suggestions that Mbappe could join Real Madrid as a free agent next summer, with PSG eager to avoid such a scenario so that they can receive a significant fee for him.
After ‘positive discussions’, the French superstar is back in the fold although his future at the club remains in doubt.
