Pochettino’s comments on Messi and Mbappe

Argentinian coach Mauricio Pochettino said:

That star Kylian Mbappe will remain in PSG, after beating its host Stade Reims 2-0 in the match that brought the two teams together on Sunday evening at the “Auguste Dolon” stadium in the fourth round of the French League for the current season 2021-2022.

Pochettino said after the match about Kylian Mbappe:

“Kylian is our player, you know football is full of rumours, our president and sporting director were clear ‘He is with us’ I am very happy one of the most important players in the world.”

He added:

“Kylian is amazing in his performance, he scored two goals, he is a creative player, and being part of our team is an excellent thing.”

And about two days left until the registration door is closed and Kylian Mbappe remains, coach Pochettino said:

“There is the president and the sporting director who is working hard, nothing to add.”

He added:

“The team is the most important, we are happy, we still need to build our fitness, the players are working hard but winning matches is what matters.”

On Lionel Messi’s first participation, Pochettino said:

“Messi is Messi, one of the best players in the world, and of course it is good that he is here with us in France. He is famous and his presence here will give French football more value. I am happy for him and for French football.”

On the international break, Pochettino noted:

“When the players come back from their national teams it will be difficult because there are many matches in the league and the Champions League to come.”

Paris Saint-Germain

The match witnessed the first appearance of Argentine star Lionel Messi with Paris Saint-Germain, after joining during the current summer transfer market in a free deal after the end of his contract with his former club Barcelona.

Kylian Mbappe participated in the entire meeting, and scored two goals for Paris Saint-Germain, despite the ambiguity about the possibility of his transfer to Real Madrid during the current summer transfer market, which will close at the end of this month.

With this result, Paris Saint-Germain is at the top of the French league standings with 12 points, after winning all its four matches, while Stade Reims is in the seventeenth place with 3 points.
