Mauro Icardi provided insight on how Paris Saint-Germain has been performing as of late under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
With Pochettino as manager of PSG, several players have stepped up their play for the club. Icardi has been among those talents who have continued to have promising performances under Pochettino. Icardi has so far recorded eight goal contributions in 13 matches played in all competitions with Pochettino as manager, including a recent Ligue 1 goal against Lille OSC.
Overall, Icardi is much pleased with Pochettino’s work with the club, which he detailed further in his talk with PSG TV.
“The arrival of the new coach was good for the squad, and for me who speaks Spanish, it was an added bonus,” Icardi said “We can communicate better and speak in a different way. We also have to thank Thomas Tuchel for what he achieved for the club.
“Each coach has their way of working and their ideas about how to play. We have put ourselves at the disposal of the new coach and his staff from the first day. We wanted to come back as well as possible and start a new cycle to be able to achieve everything we want to, that is to say win matches and lift trophies.”
PSG is in the midst of a tightly contested Ligue 1 title race, which is one in which Icardi much welcomes the challenge.
“It’s clear that every game is and will be difficult,” Icardi said. “We know that we’re a strong team, a team with undisputed technical qualities, but motivation always has to be at 100% in order to win. It’s a great challenge to have strong teams who are battling with us for the title. We’re in it and we’ll battle with those teams until the last minute.”
PSG currently stands at first place in the league standings with eight matches left this season.
