Mauricio Pochettino – Kylian Mbappe And I, Are Not Leaving PSG Next Season
Paris Saint-German (PSG) boss, Mauricio Pochettino has quashed talk of him and Kylian Mbappe leaving the club this summer by saying the pair will ‘100 percent’ be at the club next season.
Shortly after the Ligue 1 champions emerge, winners, last week, there were rumours of disharmony between the Argentine coach and the club’s hierarchy, with both Pochettino and sporting director Leonardo’s jobs said to be under threat.
But Pochettino, who has also been linked with a return to Tottenham this summer, told a press conference that both he and star striker Mbappe, whose contract runs out at the end of June, will definitely be at the Parc des Princes next season.
Pochettino went into detail regarding this statement, announcing there have been no fresh talks about his future and that his relationship with the PSG hierarchy is “good”.
“There haven’t been any concrete talks, beyond what is normal in terms of our plans with what we have been doing so far,” he added. “We have a natural relationship, we communicate regarding different topics.
“Of course, they change depending on the circumstances at the time but the relationship and the communication are good. We keep working hard, not just bearing in mind the present, but also with the responsibility in this job which is to think about the future, so that is what we are doing.
“That [the fact I and Mbappe are staying] is how I feel today. That is what I can say to you today. I can’t say anything else. That is how I feel right now.
