crazy ball – Former Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has opened up about rumors suggesting his sacking at the Parc des Princes was down to Kylian Mbappe, who is said to have a say in the transfer and appointment of a coach at the club.
The Argentine’s departure was confirmed last month after he was held responsible for PSG’s failure to go far in the Champions League last season, losing to Real Madrid in the last 16. 55-year-old French tactician Christophe Galtier has now been appointed as his successor stepped in.
Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking has led to rumors of an important role for Kylian Mbappe, the player who just extended his contract at the Parc des Princes in May 2022 with the privilege of having a say in the club’s transfer policy and the appointment of coaches.
However, the 23-year-old France international denied the reports via his social media, and now the 2018 World Cup winner’s defense has been confirmed by his former manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
Reported from the results of interviews with outlets infobae The 50-year-old Argentina boss said: “In my opinion, PSG did everything possible to keep Kylian and I also agree with that. He is currently one of the best players in world football and I think PSG, who have all the resources to do that, have convinced him to stay.”
“But I don’t think Kylian was the one who designed that new project to see me off. Those in power, in this case the president, are the ones who will think that the most comfortable thing is a new project at the club.”
