Pochettino: “Messi has a special talent. He will continue to score goals”

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the media in the preview of tomorrow’s match against Lens of matchday 17 of Ligue 1. The Argentine coach was asked about the lack of a goal from Messi, who he considers to have a special talent and will continue to score goals for a long time in Paris.

Verratti does return and Ramos does not: “Each player is a different profile. No one can be compared to another. They are all different. Regarding Verratti, he is too strong, too aggressive, he loves playing football so much, running, fighting … He is aggressive on the field. You have to treat players differently. “

The keys to winning tomorrow: “The first key is to score goals. To be a little more effective. We are going to play against a very physical team that is having a great season. It has a very good coach and good players. It will be a game in which the difficulty will be maximum “.

The best disposition for Messi and that he scores more goals: “It is a question of success, it is a question of time also to find him. Leo will score goals, he has a special talent. He has always scored goals and will always score them.”

If you see players lost to certain hierarchies in attack and in the middle: “I can’t answer a question that I don’t understand. I don’t know what the bottom line is.”

Icardi’s lack of minutes: “Mauro is waiting for his opportunity to play. He has had a small problem, now he has returned with the group. Waiting for the opportunity like the players who are in a situation that are not having many minutes. He is waiting.”

If it is easy to put Mbappé on the left and if you see him frustrated there: “I have not seen so many gestures. We talked about it at halftime. I told him that it was not the position in which he should play. He understood that he could still perform better there. But in preparation for the game, the idea was for him to play in the left going inwards in the central corridors. “

If you expect transfers in the market: “I do not know in what context I said that we played with what we had. I am not waiting for the winter market to make signings. So I do not know what I said after Nice, under what context I spoke, it is very difficult to extract or extrapolate something from you. I’ve said. But I don’t think I ever talked about signings or situations. I don’t want to talk about this. This press conference is being strange. “

The words of Ibrahimovic offering himself to PSG as sports director: “I respect the opinions of everyone. I respect opinions, ideas, I respect the ability of each one to have an overview in his mind of future situations. I only speak of mine. I don’t like to talk about what other people think. “
