Kylian Mbappe Says What PSG Lacked Under Mauricio Pochettino

It’s no secret that under manager Mauricio Pochettino there have been various criticisms over his tactics and the lack of dominance Paris Saint-Germain has given off during his year and a half stint as the bench boss. 

However, it seems as though the supporters weren’t the only ones expressing frustration over the game plan. In an interview with BFMTV, Kylian Mbappe has insisted that the French giants have lost the fear factor under Pochettino. 

“This past season, we weren’t as fearsome; we were far less untouchable. We want to go back to being intimidating in France, something we have not done these past two years,” Mbappe said. 

PSG won the Ligue 1 title by 15 points but was eliminated in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 in a humiliating fashion after they coughed up a lead. Then domestically, the capital club crashed out of the Coupe de France, failing to dominate French football as a consolation prize.  

Now it seems as though Pochettino is out the door as the Ligue 1 champions discuss a severance pay to sack the Argentine tactician and bring in soon-to-be-former OGC Nice boss Christophe Galtier as part of this new project.
