will be sidelined in their next Ligue 1 clash against Bordeaux because of injury, but he will probably be ready for Argentina’s games in the World Cup qualifying games.

PSG boss has confirmed Messi’s absence in their next Ligue 1 clash, but he hopes that the 6-time Ballon d’Or winner could return to action before his national team games.

"Lionel's not available on Saturday and will not travel with us,"

Pochettino said at Friday's pre-match news conference.

"We hope that he'll be available for Argentina and return to us afterwards."

PSG is at the top of the Ligue 1 table, but they have won most of their games with late goals and with hardship which has made the fans concerned; the coach, however, is happy with his team, saying that his men are committed to their job and that they are always looking to get better and they will.

"I am a satisfied coach,"

Pochettino said.

"The commitment is there to see, though there is the requirement to do better each game. If we score 100 goals, we want more; if we stop a penalty, we want to stop two.

"Today I am satisfied with the state of mind. If the results are there, it's because there is will. We know that the performances will get better and better.

"We are progressing collectively and individually. We have recruited many players and have a squad of 33. We are in a process of construction and have to tackle the priorities, such as helping players adapt.

"From there we can develop a way of playing based on a collective organization and solid foundations. As a coach I want to win every match 5-0, to have 75 per cent possession, to play attacking and recover the ball as quickly as possible.

"But this is a long process, this is not something I think about while I sleep."
