If this is not his concern for Kylian Mbappé, Mauricio Pochettino calmly apprehends the half return of C1 between Manchester City and PSG.
” We are ready to suffer », Trumpets Mauricio Pochettino, whose great concern this Monday remains the state of health of Kylian Mbappé, hit in a calf and still uncertain at this time for the semi-final return of the Champions League between Manchester city and the PSG (1-2 for the English at the Parc des Princes on the outward journey). ” Tomorrow night there will be emotions because the result of the go (home loss 1-2) is already having an impact on the way we play. We will have to take some risks, be brave, aggressive, knowing that City can handle any situation with a lot of quality. “
That being said, the Argentine coach does not intend to remain passive in the face of the plans of his Catalan counterpart Pep Guardiola. ” City have been playing with the same philosophy for five years. This team was built to play that way. We try to keep the ball but remaining balanced between the offensive and defensive phases. […] It is difficult to know what will be the key to tomorrow’s game. But football has surprises sometimes. And the most important thing for us is to win by two goals. “
“We also have a good team! “
In the end, Mauricio Pochettino readily wants to believe that the pressure will be more on the shoulders of the opposing coach, and of a City which has never yet reached the final of the C1. “ It is already difficult to reach the semi-finals, blows the former Spurs manager. You have to have fun, be calm, play well and try to be better than the opponent. Me, I’m pretty relaxed, like I was two years ago with Tottenham (he then reached the final at the expense of Ajax, for an ultimate setback for the benefit of Liverpool, note). We play against a good team but we also have a good team! “
