While the PSG achieved a master stroke by recruiting Gianluigi Donnarumma free this summer, Mauricio Pochettino wishes to underline the audacity of its leaders with this very strong choice.

Arrived at the end of his contract with the AC Milan last June, Gianluigi Donnarumma surprised his world by opting for a free finish at PSG while Keylor Navas had been comfortably in place for two years in the position of indisputable incumbent. Asked Friday in the columns of L'Equipe on the complexity of the management between Navas and Donnarumma , Mauricio Pochettino preferred to focus on the great ambitions of PSG in its decision to bring in the Italian goalkeeper.

“The courage of PSG to have taken Donnarumma”

“Instead to say that we lacked guts not to designate a number 1 and a number 2, I would prefer that we underline the courage of PSG to have taken Donnarumma when it already had Navas and Rico (…) What if we designate a number 1 who plays everything and gets injured? From the moment the club made the decision to recruit Donnarumma, who finished best player of the Euro, while he was a number 1 like Navas, there was no debate, we had to adapt. . Our responsibility has been to say: if you can compete and manage yourself that way, that’s the best solution, ” Pochettino says.
