In Paris Saint-Germain’s 4-1 victory over FC Barcelona, Kylian Mbappé scored a hat-trick as the capital club score four unanswered goals at the Camp Nou. Many wondered if the 22-year-old could put together that type of performance without Neymar Jr. in the lineup.
However, if someone were to ask PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino if he expected this night from Mbappé, he’d say yes. After the Parisien win, the Argentine tactician spoke to the media, where he revealed the mentality the France international had heading into that match against Barça.
“Yesterday, at training, he asked me how many times I had won at the Camp Nou. Once, I told him. He replied to me: tomorrow; we are going to win a second time. He is a top player,” Pochettino said.
