The former PSG player talked about the arrival of their new coach and the team’s chances of winning the UCL title with the Ex-Spurs boss.

Following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, former



Mauricio Pochettino

, was assigned to coach

Paris Saint-Germain

until 2022 with the option of one additional year. The Argentine, who joined the team in the recent period, is expected to join PSG’s training session ahead of their match against

AS Saint-Étienne


Former PSG defender and Pochettino’s teammate,

Cristóbal Parralo

, talked about the arrival of the 48-year-old, saying:

“His arrival at PSG is a good thing. He is a coach who has proven himself, and I am sure it is a great chance for PSG to have him in charge. Because he has already demonstrated his abilities in two major championships like Spain and England.”

“He set up and led a great project at Tottenham and reached the Champions League final. In addition, as a former player of PSG, he knows the club well. I am convinced that he can do a good job.”

“Today it’s difficult to coach any big club because of the very high demands. Paris has reached the Champions League final and now want to win it. For several years, they have set up a “champion project” to win it. And they have players who stand out like Neymar, Mbappé, Di Maria. I believe that it is normal for the leaders to make big decisions to make profitable the investments which they made with these big players.”

Parralo also commented on PSG’s chances of winning the

Champions League

with their new boss, adding:

“I’m sure that with him Paris can win the Champions League, yes. He is someone with obvious ideas and a lot of personalities. He knows how to manage a locker room. And that’s important in a team that has so many current football stars. He has the character and the authority to unite the egos that there may be in such a locker room.”

Later he thanked PSG fans for his two years with the

Ligue 1

club, stating:

“More than anything, it’s the tremendous support from the supporters. Playing at the Park in this atmosphere. It really surprised me.”
