Despite the victory against RB Leipzig (3-2), the criticisms are still present against PSG which struggles to convince from a collective point of view. Despite everything, Mauricio Pochettino is still supported in the locker room.

Arrived on the bench of PSG last January, Mauricio Pochettino had asked for time before judging his work. But more than ten months later, although the balance sheet has been excellent since the start of the season, PSG is struggling to generate collective power. The match against RB Leipzig sums up the PSG Pochettino version perfectly, namely a poor performance since the Germans dominated the match, but a victory at the finish thanks to the talent of the Parisian attackers in this case Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi . But after the game, Marco Verratti sounded the alarm: “It's not enough to have great players. The whole team is made up of great players, world champions, players who have won a lot of the Champions League. Everyone is strong. But the team that will win in the end is the one with the best collective. And that's what we have to find asap. To be stronger, to be even better with the ball. “

Pochettino saved by the stars of PSG?

The Italian midfielder therefore sees the same thing as everyone else, namely a team which has many stars but whose collective worries. The Pochettino paw is therefore difficult to see at the moment. From there to cast a cold on the future of the Argentine technician? Not yet. And for good reason, according to information from the Parisian, the coach of PSG is protected by his results, excellent since the start of the season with a single defeat in all competitions, but also by his relationship with his players . Indeed, if the tactical record of Mauricio Pochettino is intriguing, his work as manager is on the other hand welcomed internally. His energy and constant positive speech are appreciated in the locker room, including by the stars of the team who have an excellent relationship with their coach, starting with Kylian Mbappé . Therefore, Pochettino has good weight support and should not be let down by his players.
