What’s next after this ad

On July 5, 2022, Paris Saint-Germain announced in a press release that it had terminated Mauricio Pochettino’s contract after only one and a half seasons. Discreet since his departure, the Argentinian had been asked abroad but there was never really anything concrete. Interviewed by the Argentinian media Infobaethe 50-year-old technician first returned to his departure. “I’m calm, I accept the circumstances we had to go through. It all ended quite late. We signed the termination of the contract a day before the start of the pre-season, between July 3 and 4, and it is clear that it is difficult at the moment because all the projects are closed for me.he regretted.

I adapt to new circumstances and I always have in mind to progress and above all to analyze everything that has happened in the last 18 months at Paris Saint-Germain and, as we always say, the experience must be used to progresshe added before taking stock. I think it was very positive in view of his 18 months in Paris. In sporting terms, we have won the Cup, the Supercup and the Championship in a year and a half, but it is clear that PSG’s project is to win the Champions League and not winning it can always be considered a failure. (…) But sometimes in football there are factors that cannot be controlled.”

League 1 “is not valued”

Obviously, Mauricio Pochettino also returned to the elimination of PSG against Real Madrid and still cannot digest these breathtaking last 30 minutes at the Santiago Bernabéu. “I think Benzema’s foul on Donnarumma existed and if it had been reviewed by VAR, today we would be talking about Madrid’s elimination. But it was a trigger that gave Real Madrid a lot of faith, a different energy on their pitch, but that’s football and it shouldn’t be analyzed beyond football. It is a game in which, many times, the luck factor and obviously the emotional factor play a role (…) I believe that we have done a job in which we have been honest, we have worked as hard as we could and we had this misfortune in the last minutes against Madrid.”.

Finally, the Argentinian also returned to the pressure of the Parisian public around a success in the Champions League and regrets that the other trophies are almost anecdotal. “Dominating the French championship or national competitions means that the fans themselves do not give him the importance he deserves (…) So I think he is underestimated, that he is not not valued, but of course winning is an obligation and if you don’t win it looks like a total disaster. There is also no excitement in winning. Everything is focused on the Champions League and sometimes it is a bit distracting”, acknowledged Pochettino. Christophe Galtier is warned.
