Trouble in PSG dressing room, Messi questions Pochettino’s expedient

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has found himself under more pressure, with Lionel Messi’s camp questioning his tactical acumen, L’Equipe reports.

They believe his game plan is “too restrictive”.

Pochettino has struggled to impress with the Ligue 1 team despite having a star-studded side at his disposal.

Despite currently topping the table by 11 points, PSG have been heavily criticised for their poor, uninspiring performances.

They were recently forced to settle for a draw against Lens and Nice.

A trident of Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have often failed to click and Pochettino has not settled on his ideal line-up, having not played the same starting XI more than once this campaign.

The team’s style of play has also been described as being ‘restrictive’ – and their inability to transition to counter-attacks and get the most out of their talented forwards is another reason why former Tottenham boss Pochettino is under fire.

There are also concerns inside PSG’s dressing room that their manager is not harsh enough, as he “strives on a daily basis” to avoid arguments and show “consideration”.

It is indeed believed Pochettino has “lost credit” with parts of his team as a result of his soft approach.
