Mbappe Explains What PSG Lacked Under Pochettino Last Season

The Ligue 1 giants are set to part ways with the tactician, as per Sky Sports, despite PSG winning the league title by 15 points.

However, the Argentine’s failure in the UEFA Champions League could seemingly cost him his job.

With the Parisians seemingly in the hunt for a new manager, Mbappe has provided his opinion on the last two seasons in Paris. Speaking to BFMTV (via Daily Star), he said:

“This past season, we weren’t as fearsome. We were far less untouchable. We want to go back to being intimidating in France, something we have not done these past two years.”

Outlining the club’s ambitions in the coming season, he added:

“Of course, the UEFA Champions League is the goal. This is the clear and announced objective. We don’t need to list many more adjectives regarding the UEFA Champions League. That’s what we want.”

Pochettino, who won his first league title in his coaching career last season, failed to outwit Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League last 16 stage.

Currently, PSG are in talks with the former Tottenham Hotspur boss over his severance package of €15 million (as per Goal).

Meanwhile, Nice coach Christophe Galtier is set to take over the reins at the Parc des Princes, as per MARCA.
