Pochettino: 'Focused on Nîmes'

Find out what Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino had to say ahead of Wednesday’s Round 23 Ligue 1 clash against Nîmes at the Parc des Princes:

THE match AGAINST nîmes

“We are focused on tomorrow’s match, we need to bounce back and win the three points against Nîmes. We need to improve as a team more than in any one area of our game. We are always looking to improve.”


“It’s important to have many players available as possible to maintain competition for places. Despite Keylor Navas being unavailable for tomorrow, we have a team capable of competing in every competition and we are very happy with the quality of Sergio Rico. I am also very happy with the way the young players are working. They are very good footballers. It’s always hard to breakthrough in a club like Paris Saint-Germain, but I’m really impressed with how good they are.”


“I accept the responsibility. We dropped three points in two passages of play. We don’t have much time between matches as we are playing every three or four days. Verratti is a great player, but we could still have beaten Lorient without him. We have great players in this squad and we don’t need to look for excuses when certain players are unavailable.”


“I am very happy with all my players. Our responsibility is to build a strong team. We need time to do that. We have played a lot of football in one month, but we haven’t had a lot of time to train. The objective is always to win. We want to win the Ligue 1 championship, that’s our priority and we still have time to do that.”
