UCL: Pochettino explains why Messi, Neymar, Mbappe flopped against Club Brugge


Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has the attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe failed to shine against Club Brugge, because they are still looking to “create a team”.

The trio who boast over 1,100 club goals between them fired blanks, as PSG were held to a 1-1 draw in Belgium.

When asked why a World Cup winner, a man with six Ballons d’Or to his name and an iconic Brazil international struggled to sparkle, Pochettino told reporters: “We know we have to improve. That’s not the problem for me.

“I’m happy with the defensive effort of the attackers. We have to be stronger in other areas of the game.

“[We] need to compete, to know each other, to understand each other, to play together to succeed with all three but that was not the problem.

“We weren’t strong enough in a Champions League match. We are not happy with the result and the performance, we know we have to do better.

“We have a magnificent group of players, we now have to find a defensive and offensive organisation. We need time.”
