For thunderous declarations, it is never to Mauricio Pochettino that we must turn. In this sense, the PSG coach did not disappoint on Tuesday, on the eve of the first meeting in the Champions League this season, in Bruges. Favorite status? ” I have no problem [avec ça], certified the Argentinian. We are a club that bought a lot of players this summer and brought in some very important names, but you have to convert it all into a team, like Chelsea did last year. “
Because of course, the terror of this C1 for “Pocket”, it is the Blues of his predecessor in Paris Thomas Tuchel: “With the names aligned, we can have the feeling that we are the team to beat, but it is is Chelsea, the defending champion, who is the team to beat, he got stronger, he invested much more money than PSG. “
Obviously, when we recruit free Donnarumma, Wijnaldum or Messi … By the way, will the Pulga be associated for the first time with Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, in an offensive trident that will make more than one defender cry. “I join this collective excitement, I’m like everyone else, I would be crazy not to want to see them play together. Will we see them together tomorrow? Maybe yes… “
Bruges “physically huge”
It will take that, so much Bruges which “dominates the Belgian league”, “is a huge team physically as I have seen in its last two games, from 5-3-2 to 4-3-3. It takes absolute concentration and we have total respect for our opponent, there are only great teams in the Champions League. “At this level, the matches are often played on details, could have added Pochettino.
