Unexpectedly, the statements of Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain seemed less enthusiastic before the start of his Champions League campaign.
Pochettino said, during a press conference (Tuesday) before facing Club Brugge in the opening rounds of the first group, that despite the inclusion of Paris Saint-Germain big stars, he has not transformed the group of these brilliant players into a harmonious team so far.
Despite Pochettino’s statements, Paris Saint-Germain remains a strong candidate for the Champions League title, especially after Argentine star Lionel Messi moved to him in a free deal at the beginning of the season from Barcelona.
Messi supported the attack of the team, which already includes Frenchman Kylian Mbappe and Brazilian Neymar da Silva, but it seems that the trio has not shown his best so far, according to Pochettino.
The Argentine coach said that the prevailing feeling is that Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are the strongest currently, but the latter is considered the title holder, so it will be the team that must be defeated, especially after strengthening its squad.
And on the possibility of pushing the fiery attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe (Wednesday) in the starting line-up against Brugge, Pochettino said: “This is possible,” noting that it is not possible to “violate” the desire to involve this trio.
“I surrendered to the collective desire,” the Argentine coach added, laughing, stressing that he still had not decided the starting lineup in which he would play the match.
Since Messi moved to Paris Saint-Germain, he has not appeared with Neymar and Mbappe in one meeting together, as the Argentine star participated in only one match as a substitute, which was in front of Reims Stadium in the French League, where he entered as a substitute for Neymar.
It is noteworthy that Paris Saint-Germain qualified for the semi-finals last season before losing to Manchester City, and was the runner-up in 2020 after losing the final 0-1 to Bayern Munich, but he never won the title.
