PSG started a new era last summer by separating in particular from Leonardo and Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian coach did not leave an unforgettable memory in the capital.
When he arrived at PSG in 2021 to replace Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino had a lot of expectations and hopes placed in him. Despite some great performances and exploits, the Argentinian was above all marked by his inability to make his team play well. However, he had very talented players available, such as Leo Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. But the transplant never took. Currently without a club after his dismissal from PSG last summer, Pochettino has certainly had time to take stock of the good and bad points of his time in France. For him, the management of the MNM was apparently too complicated to see clearly collectively.
Pochettino, words are strong
🔹 Kylian Mbappe (12 goals)
🔹 Neymar (11 goals)
The two Parisian stars have left to compete for the title of top scorer in Ligue 1 this season. 🤜🤛

In an interview given to Report, Pochettino let go. For him, his role was too small to be able to make strong decisions. “You have to constantly adapt because there was too much grandeur. For Barça, having Messi or for Madrid, having Cristiano is a blessing. But when you put in too many players who all need their place and to be number one, it can get confusing. In the end, when you play, it’s 11 players with one ball. There was a penalty, and who takes it? It’s not even a coach’s decision.”, said Mauricio Pochettino in particular, who will enlighten some PSG fans about the particular management of a workforce like that of the capital club. This season, Christophe Galtier has taken up the torch. Despite some showers, the former LOSC coach is more convincing in the proposed game than his predecessor. Paris is still undefeated in all competitions. But the big deadlines will be to come in 2023 with in particular, an eighth final of the Champions League against Bayern Munich.
