LIGUE 1 - Deschamps asks for time for the Messi-Neymar-Mbappé trio
Mauricio Pochettino struggles to make the most of his attacking trio Messi-Neymar-Mbappé.
The Brazilian is clearly not at the level expected since the start of the season, while the Argentine has yet to adjust to a new league and has also been hampered by a knee injury. Even so, it will take some time to see this trio to its full potential, but we must not forget the other players on the pitch with them, as Didier Deschamps reminded us.
For the coach of the France team, "It can't be done by snapping your fingers. And here you are only talking about three players. But the other seven, what are they doing? They are useless? ", He confided to the Parisian.
“A team is not three players. OK, forwards, by virtue of their individual qualities, they are supposed to finish the job. But it's not just that. When the team doesn’t have the ball, attackers are also affected. When it does, there is the displacement, the complementarity to be found with the full-backs, the midfielders."
