PSG lost against Manchester City (2-1) at the Etihad Stadium in the group stage of the Champions League. He qualified for the knockout stages of the competition, despite everything. Mauricio Pochettino analyzes this ambivalent evening in a furtive way because of the distanced press conference where the fluidity of the dialogue is not possible. The coach did not want to linger.
What do you remember from the evening, the loss or the qualification?
MAURICIO POCHETTINO. There were two different periods. City were aggressive in pressing very high. We have achieved some good things, but we also have to improve aspects. We started the second half well. We managed the game well, but I had to change players when we got the hang of the game. Manchester City will be first, it’s a very good team. We have to try to improve.
How, in which part of the game?
All aspects. Everything must be improved.
Why can’t you impose your style?
We are improving ourselves. A lot has happened since the start of the season. It’s better than two months ago, better than a month ago. Little by little, we are improving.
What is the news of the injured?
I have no news at the moment. I didn’t have time to speak with the medical staff. News will be provided later at a medical point.
Have you reconfirmed your commitment to PSG with your players?
The players know my situation. We are in an environment where there are rumors. It’s not even worth talking about the rumors.
