"I'm still the coach of Paris Saint-Germain"

“I’m still the coach of Paris Saint-Germain”

The Argentine coach of Paris Saint-Germain, Mauricio Pochettino, indicated, Friday, that he is still the coach and that he “participates in the decision-making process.”

The French press continues to publish information that Paris Saint-Germain will search for a new coach after the failure of the Champions League, although he will have to compensate Pochettino and his team with 10-15 million euros in the event of an expulsion.

Pochettino has tried to dispel this speculation by suggesting that he is still the club’s manager. “I am the coach, I am part of the club and I participate in the decision-making process,” he stressed.

Next Sunday, the annual awards ceremony of the Union of French Professional Footballers (UNFP) will be held with the help of Kylian Mbappe and Pochettino refused to speculate on whether the player will next announce his future.

“This is a question for Kylian,” he said, although he hopes that if something is up, “there will be some positive connections to PSG.”

In response to a question about some of the statements of Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, published Friday in the French press, in which he asked the club for “decisions” so that there would be no rotation in the goal with Costa Rican Keylor Navas, the coach replied: “I don’t know what Gigio said?

“In any case, the club will take the decision it deems appropriate,” he said.

On the other side, Pochettino claimed that his team was “the closest” to eliminating Real Madrid in the Champions League.

“We were closer than Chelsea or Manchester City,” he confirmed in a press conference before Saturday’s league match against Montpellier.

But he admitted that they had “bad moments in certain periods” that made it impossible for them to continue competing. “We were close, but it’s gone,” he stressed.

Pochettino noted that the Champions League “has always been the club’s goal in recent years”. However, the final match on the 28th in Paris will take place between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

The French league champion without problems, Paris Saint-Germain, exited the cup on penalties against Nice, in a match in which the Argentine coach reminded of the absence of many international players who were called up by their teams.

However, stress it After the failure of the champions they did not collapse and “Saint-Germain ended up winning the league in a noteworthy way”.
