could not beat

Saint-Etienne

last night. The Parisians only managed to get a 1-1 draw.

With this draw, PSG are now three points behind the Ligue 1 leader,

Lyon

.

In a post-match press conference, Paris Saint-Germain new boss,

Mauricio Pochettino

made some comments on

Mbappe

’s performance.

“Kylian needs to improve, like everybody else.

“He should feel disappointed as we did not win and he can always do better.

“However, his attitude was good. I am happy with what he did.”

It should be mentioned that Mbappe’s future at the club is still unclear. The French star’s contract with PSG will be expired in 2022 and he is yet to come to an agreement with the club.

Although The Parisians couldn’t win last night, Pochettino has been appointed as PSG boss just a few days ago and the club captain,

Marquinhos

believes the Argentine needs more time.

“Changes? Yes, there were changes, that’s normal, but you can’t change everything at once.”

Marquinhos said.

“The coach was clear with us, we tried to adapt to his philosophy while maintaining our identity. Bit by bit, I am sure that we will improve, the link-up play will come, the coach will put in place his philosophy and we will play better.

“We had a tough opponent up against us, with experience and aggression and they caused us problems. We weren’t able to find those connections to put in a better performance, but it's expected with a new coach and the time it takes to adapt to a new philosophy, as well as the return from the holidays.

“It’s true that we came here to get the victory, we tried, we pushed, there were some issues in our movement and our passing. It wasn’t our best evening, we are aware of that. Now, we need to get back to work, we have got three days before our next match, when we will go out to get the victory.”
