Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Arkadiusz Milik’s “Little Brother” interview!
It is a PSG as champion of France who will travel tomorrow evening to the lawn of Strasbourg, which still dreams of a podium. The opportunity for Mauricio Pochettino to appear at a press conference and to discuss several hot issues including the use of young people or the possibility of seeing Kylian Mbappé top scorer and passer in the championship. Comments reported by RMC Sport and Fan Channel.
On his future and that of Mbappé
“My percentage of staying at PSG next season? And for Mbappé 🇫🇷? 100% in both cases! From how I feel and perceive it, but also because I cannot wish for anything else, I think Mbappé will stay 100% next season. But after, you never know in football, you can expect a lot of things “
On the possibility of seeing Mbappé top scorer and assist
“Help Kylian Mbappé 🇫🇷 to finish top scorer in Ligue 1? I think there is no problem that the group will help him collectively in this objective”.
On discussions with its leaders
“If I discussed my future with the leaders? We always think about the present and the future, our discussions are normal and natural”.
On the changes to be made to the club
“The changes to be made for next season? The important thing is to be able to capitalize on the experience to be better in the future. This experience is transmitted to the management”.
“Neymar’s talent is indisputable. He is a player who signed for several years and he is one of the best in the world. It is true that he has had ups and downs this season, at the image of the team. He had circumstances, arriving after the Copa America. He could not have continuity. Players of his caliber need to play to be at their best level. Often the margin between success and failure is weak. I was speaking this morning with Messi and we were discussing the season. We did not succeed only against Real Madrid, when we were starting to have benchmarks and strength. That could have been different.”
On the use of young people
“Harder to launch young people at PSG than at Tottenham? No, there is no more pressure from the media. There is also a difference in project, philosophy or project between the 2 clubs. It is a question of development”.
On a potential decompression after the title
“The atmosphere is good, we are training well. We have just won the championship. Sometimes you lose motivation after that but we will try to win and stay competitive. We have to stay professional and do our job. This Now is not the time to experiment with new tactics.”
“Strasbourg is having an incredible season and I already congratulate them for that, beyond European qualification or not. In the first leg, we were leading 3-0 and they came back to 3-2, it was difficult. They have also grown this season. It’s a team that will be difficult to play, well prepared with very good players”.
On Carlo Ancelotti
“I have great respect for Ancelotti, he is a great coach and an incredible person. I celebrate that a person is in football and there should be more like him in football”.
