Pochettino: 'We showed that never-give-up mentality!'

Check out what the Paris Saint-Germain camp had to say after the thrilling, last-minute, 3-2 home triumph over Saint-Etienne that sees Les Rouge et Bleu climb to within a point of top spot on the Ligue 1 table.

Mauricio Pochettino 

"We all feel the same way, we're very happy and it was a very good performance. I think we deserved the victory, but the way we got it was very emotional, and not easy for us. But that's football. The most important thing is to show character, to have a 'never-give-up' mentality and always keep fighting and we needed that today to get the three points."

"It took me a long time to get back on the pitch. I've had a lot of injury problems. I really wanted to play and I got on for the last 25 minutes. I had a chance and I scored. I couldn't have wished for more. We dominated the first half but we were unable to get a goal. We created a lot of chances and were really the better side in the opening 45 minutes. They slowly came out of their shell in the second half and it was a crazy final few minutes. There were goals, chances and there was a last-minute winner for the first time this season. The most important thing is that we won."

"Watching the final minutes from the sidelines was very tough, but Mauro scored a great goal and we are very happy with this win. Now we want to go on with it. Winning is never easy but the whole team works hard to get these results, and we know that if we play like we did today, because I think we played very well today - and obviously there is always room for improvement - but today we got the three points and now we will focus on the next match."
