Held in check by Stade Rennais (1-1), the capital club did not give the impression of a team wanting to tear themselves away in the final sprint for the title. And for the Ile-de-France coach, choices may be made next summer.
Paris was under pressure. Five days after being eliminated in the semi-finals of the Champions League, the capital club had to win in Brittany to stay one step behind the Lille winners in Lens on Friday night (3-0). And if they led in the score thanks to a generous penalty, Mauricio Pochettino’s men then collapsed in the second period, especially after the equalization of Stade Rennais.
If the infernal calendar of the Rouge-et-Bleu can explain a decline in speed, the partners of Neymar did not however really give the impression of being a team wanting to tear themselves away to keep its title of champion of France. A finding far from new. Was Paris still marked by its European failure? Asked at a press conference, Pochettino was clear.
Choices will be made
“No, in a club like PSG it can’t happen. If so, decisions will have to be made. Because a PSG player cannot think of what happened four days ago ”, he confided. Relaunched about the “choices” to be made, especially next summer, the Argentinian said that the ax will fall soon.
“As in all clubs, the technical staff always has the idea of improving the workforce. Decisions will be taken at the end of the season. The technical staff and the sports management work to design the team and above all to create the best team. Everything will depend on the decisions we will take in the future ”. Case to follow.
