- There are many questions being asked this morning after the elimination from the Champions League, with Pochettino and Mbappé more out than in
PSG left the Champions League through the back door, roughly shaken by Madrid. And now that? Many questions make their way today in the French press after falling apart at the Santiago Bernabéu. This elimination sows many doubts for the future in a club in which there are inevitably going to be changes. Complicated weeks are ahead, with no more incentive than to seal a league that is taken for granted.
At this time it seems impossible that he can continue: “The emir of Qatar only has to offer him the Eiffel Tower”, has been heard once. You can not give more to the Frenchman, the best footballer in the world. Dissatisfied with so many unfulfilled promises, yesterday he saw that greatness is not bought at the stroke of a checkbook. If he had any doubts about his future, Real Madrid dispelled it with one of those comebacks that go down in history.
The Haaland Option
With the more than likely departure of Kylian, PSG have to think of a plan B. Ruled out that he changes his way of understanding this business, Al Khelaifi will bet on another player with a lot of cachet to renew a team that lacks work from the start. base. Haaland likes, like City, Real Madrid and Barça, but the Norwegian also saw what happened last night. This defeat in the Champions League can make more than one think about the convenience of playing for PSG.
Messi, condemned to remain
Although the Argentine has not found happiness in Barcelona, he will have no choice but to stay at PSG next season. He has her signed by contract and the Parisian team is not going to let him go at the gates of the World Cup being played in Qatar. Although he has lost magic, his name continues to be a media attraction that they have in Paris to revive a team that next year will try again to assault Europe.
From Pochettino to… Zidane?
The Argentine coach will not be fired immediately, but he is the chronicle of a death foretold. Last night Leonardo said that he is the chosen one for the project but in June the divorce between both parties will be announced. Zidane plays again in the background, whom PSG places as the first option for the bench. A decision that also affects the team’s sports manager, who with Zinedine will probably also end up leaving his position.
