Leonardo on Mauricio Pochettino

Tue 19 January 2021 | 11:40

PSG Chief believes the Argentine coach is the right person to lead the Ligue 1 champions.

According to

Paris Saint-Germain

sporting director, Leonardo,

Mauricio Pochettino

is the right man to reshape the team since he understands the squad’s DNA. The Argentine, who took charge of PSG after Thomas Tuchel struggles with inconsistency, has been able to win Trophee Des Champions with his new squad since his arrival while also leading them to the top of the Ligue 1 table.



France Football

about their new coach, saying:

"I think it is important to assert a style on the pitch. Because Paris must have its identity. It does not happen in a few weeks but over several years.”

"And I think that Pochettino can allow us to refine that in a consistent way and in connection with the club's DNA."

Later Leonardo talked about their transfers in the previous season, for which he received criticism, adding:

"Last summer was the end of a cycle for some. All concerned knew it. The record of arrivals Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi, Danilo Pereira, Alessandro Florenzi, Rafinha?”

"First, give them time to acclimatise. But I am very satisfied with their contribution."
