Mauricio Pochettino inquired about the content of the training sessions concocted by Thomas Tuchel at Paris Saint-Germain. And he had an unpleasant surprise.
Mauricio Pochettino has yet to be officially appointed head of the Paris Saint Germain, but he’s already at work, remotely. The Argentine technician thus inquired about the work carried out by his predecessor, Thomas Tuchel. And he didn’t necessarily like what he discovered.
According to Le Parisien, Pochettino has thus obtained physical data concerning his future players, and the content of Tuchel’s sessions. “The Argentinian was particularly rather unfavorably surprised by the reality of the physical volume of certain sessions of his predecessor, he who is known for the hardness of his training”, thus indicates the daily.
With Pochettino, they will sweat it
With this offseason reduced to the bare minimum in the wake of the Champions League final, it is clear that PSG players are lacking in physical preparation, which may explain the lack of rhythm in their matches, and undoubtedly the multiple injuries that hit the club. In defense of Tuchel, perhaps he reduced the content of his sessions because of the sequence of matches, and to avoid too much “pulling on the machine” with certain elements.
Pochettino has a different management style. He is particularly adept at very long training sessions, while emphasizing play and intensity. He likes to see his players work. The proof, always according to Le Parisien, the former coach of Spurs has a habit of filming … the bodybuilding sessions. It will be impossible for PSG players to cheat on that side.
