His word is rather rare. In a long interview, the president of PSG swept the news of his club. The person took the opportunity to discuss the burning issues related to the future of his striker and his trainer.
This season, LOSC deprived Paris Saint-Germain of a new title of champion of France. A cruel disillusion for the Parisian club which will have won only the Coupe de France and the Champions Trophy. As soon as the 2020-2021 fiscal year is over, the craziest rumors are circulating about the Ile-de-France training. These last days, we thus evoke the malaise of Mauricio Pochettino and his desire to leave the French capital. Discussions have even taken place between the Argentine technician and the president of Tottenham, his former club, Daniel Levy. Since then, the artistic vagueness remains on the future of Pochettino at PSG. The latter’s silence does not aspire to bring a certain peace of mind to this issue. In an interview with the team, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi the president of PSG made a small update on the subject.
If his media interventions are intended to be rare, they have the merit of clarifying things … Asked about the situation of his coach courted by Tottenham, the strong man of the Parisian club wanted to be both firm and reassuring. “Look, at the end of the season I had two meetings with Pochettino, two or three hours each time. He never told me he wanted to leave. He never had an attitude that suggested he wanted to leave. It is quite the reverse. He was totally involved in the subjects: the club, the structure, the organization, what he needs for next season … He talks almost every day with Leonardo about the transfer window, the players, etc. This situation really upsets me, it is not suitable. He’s been there since January, he still has two years of contract, he’s our coach. For him as for Mbappé, people are trying to disturb us. But we’re together. No one will divide us by doing this, “ Al-Khelaïfi confides a bit irritated. Unfortunately for the main protagonist, the Parisian tribulations are not limited to the single case of Mauricio Pochettino. Obviously, everyone is waiting to know the outcome of the soap opera Kylian Mbappé. Under contract until June 2022 with Paris SG, the 2018 world champion keeps the suspense going.

An indecision which inevitably goes hand in hand with fables about its future. Here again, the president of PSG shows his optimism and believes that the negotiations are going in the right direction between the two parties. “I’ll be clear: Kylian is going to stay in Paris, we’re never going to sell him and he’ll never leave free. I never give details in the media about ongoing negotiations. All I can say is that it is progressing well. I hope we will find common ground. It’s Paris, it’s his country. He has a mission, not just to be a football player but to promote the French Championship, his country and his capital. He is a fantastic boy, as a person and as an athlete. He’s one of the best players today and he will win the Ballon d’Or for years to come, I’m 100% sure. He has everything you need to extend here. Where can he go? Which clubs, in terms of ambition and project, can compete with PSG today? ” thus lets go NAK.
And even if his striker indirectly put pressure on him by calling for an ambitious team for next season, the Ile-de-France leader sees nothing but positive. “If he says that, he wants to win and that’s not a bad thing. We are ambitious too. But if he wants to decide who to recruit or not, that is not possible. I repeat, he’s a great boy, I’m sure he says that because he wants a better team to win the C1. “ The future will tell if the predictions of Nasser Al-Khelaïfi prove to be correct …
