Mauricio Pochettino was pleased by Paris Saint-Germain’s performance against Saint-Etienne, even if the result left a lot to be desired.
Paris Saint-Germain team’s effort made against Saint-Etienne delighted Mauricio Pochettino, but he knows there are plenty of changes to be made.
PSG worked for a 1-1 draw in Pochettino’s opening game in charge, with the former Tottenham manager having replaced Thomas Tuchel.
“I am happy with the efforts of the players,” Pochettino told Telefoot. “We’ve been trying since our first day to set up different concepts.”
“I’m happy with their efforts, their attitude. It’s only the beginning. They have to adapt to us [the staff] and we have to adapt to them. There is work to be done to get to know each other better.”
“We have to improve in several situations, especially with the ball, but it was difficult because the preparation has was very short.”
“I am disappointed because we are PSG and we want to win. But we didn’t have a lot of time to prepare for the match.”
“We still have a lot of things to improve, to develop. This is not the result that we wanted.”
