LIGUE 1 - Pochettino gives his opinion on Club Brugge
They will have known it in Bruges and the surrounding area: the star company of Paris Saint-Germain has landed. On Tuesday evening Lionel Messi and co already trained once on Jan Breydel's turf in the run-up to their Champions League match against Club Brugge. But first coach Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the press.
Of course, the Argentinian mainly received questions about his own team. But his opinion about Blauw-Zwart was also polled and Pochettino appears to be quite impressed. "It's a good team. They have dominated the Belgian league for years. Club Brugge is a physical team that can change system. And in the Champions League you meet the best teams in Europe. So we have to respect them," he was quoted as saying at Sporza.
The match will in any case be followed from all over the world, but in principle that has little to do with Club. For example, football fans worldwide want to see the golden triangle Messi-Mbappe-Neymar at work together for the first time. "Yes, that's possible. Maybe. It's possible," Pochettino said. "I cannot confirm my team yet. There are still doubts. We will decide after the last training on Tuesday evening."
