The victory in Montpellier (4-0) does not change the many questions that punctuate the life of the club at the end of the season. The PSG coach did not want to say if he should meet his leaders soon. But he believes that if there is to be a meeting, it will be at the request of club officials.
You have insisted on the attitude of your players in recent weeks. You must be satisfied after this great success?
MAURICIO POCHETTINO: “It’s a complete match. We started the game well, we scored goals, we did not concede. We wanted to end the season well away from home, so it's a satisfaction. »
Is the challenge of the last day to end with a victory and help Mbappé to finish top scorer in Ligue 1?
We managed to obtain this title of champion of France thanks to our collective. Now we hope that the individual goals of our players will be achieved. And it's true that we will do everything to make Kylian the top scorer in the championship.
Can you explain to us why Idrissa Gueye was absent from the match sheet?
Idrissa made the trip to Montpellier, but for personal reasons he had to leave the team sheet. But he wasn't hurt.
Do you understand why Messi is able to play at this level tonight, after a disappointing match against Troyes?
It's soccer. Sometimes there are explanations other times not, from one game to another it can change. You may or may not be successful. But for me, Leo always plays well. On the pitch, I always see him doing great and unique things.
“The president I think we will see him in Qatar”
Would PSG have an interest in extending and keeping Di Maria?
He has been a very important player for years. Like Mbappé, it is better to have him in your team. Then there are negotiations between the two parties and several parameters that come into consideration.
Do you plan to meet your leaders this week and discuss your future with your president?
We often have meetings with the leaders. The president I think we will see in Qatar. To be clear, this type of meeting is done at the request of the leaders.
Did you give your young players a little more playing time tonight? Are you satisfied with their performance?
Many things are said about young people. But we are in a club where the main request is to win the Champions League. These young people must demonstrate their potential in training and thus earn the right to play. For young people it's incredible to have 5 minutes of play in a club like PSG, it allows them to acquire maturity. I don't want to expand further, but as technical staff, we know how to identify and support these young people so that they can embrace a professional career. Sometimes we talk lightly about certain subjects, without real arguments.
