Eliminated in the Champions League semi-finals and dropped by LOSC in the league, PSG had a complicated last week, to put it mildly. The draw in Rennes (1-1) and the nervousness displayed by the whole group highlighted a state of mind and morale in the hard. Sunday evening Pochettino had already warned that decisions will have to be taken for the future and it starts tomorrow with the semi-final in Montpellier. Already, there will be no Verratti or Kurzawa, both already withdrawn for the end of the season but when we talk about the results of these first six months, the Argentinian coach pouted and already mentioned next season.
“PSG must always win. The goal is to win every day, every competition. We have this desire for victory. Each victory brings us a little more satisfaction. The Champions League, there will be a disappointment not to reach the final. In the league, we are three points behind Lille and in the cup semi-finals. It will be great if we could win the cup to start a new season with a new strategy, a new plan and a new project. It would be important for next year “, starts the Argentinian in a press conference.
Pochettino is already looking to the future
If there are still two Ligue 1 matches and this Coupe de France match in Montpellier, Pochettino is looking ahead and in particular the transfer window. While a journalist asked him a question about Sergio Ramos, whose name is evoked with insistence on the side of PSG, he who arrives at the end of his contract with Real Madrid, the technician refuses to mention the name of the Spanish defender, but also claims that the club is already at work in some areas.
“I’m not going to answer that question. What I might say could be misinterpreted. Out of respect for PSG and because we are talking about a player from another club. I can say that we are working to improve the team, we are working on all types of improvement. We are focused on the end of the season, the semi-final of the Coupe de France. This is the goal today ”, he explains. The present is the Coupe de France, but it is also the preparation for the new season.
