The former Tottenham boss remains hopeful that the 2018 World Cup winner will agree new terms with the Parc des Princes.
Pochettino Says Mbappe has to stay
PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino remains optimistic that Mbappe will sign a new deal with the club. Outside of the contract in 2022, Kylian Mbappe could leave the Ligue 1 side in the summer if a new deal is not agreed. The striker is believed to be interested in Real Madrid, who scored twice to secure Paris Saint-Germain’s dramatic 3-2 win over Saint-Etienne on Sunday. Talking about the future of Kylian Mbappe, Mauricio Pochettino said that he is optimistic and hopes that the best players in the club, in this case Mbappe, will remain.
Mauricio also talked about the drama of his side’s victory in a game in which all goals came at the close of 12 minutes plus a stopping time. Saint-Etienne was in the lead, and then, it seemed, snatched a point with the 92nd minute of the equalizer, only for Mauro Icardi to lead the winner, putting Paris Saint-Germain just one point behind the leaders of Lille.
Mauricio Pochettino said that it is a victory, they will see at the end if it is a victory for the title, but these are three very important points and they were looking for a victory to the end. The team has mental strength, great quality and not only athleticism. Circumstances are what they are, it is not easy, but these three points will give energy.
What’s Mbappe’s thought on contract renewal
He said that they got into problems themselves. When they lead 2-1, they have to keep the lead, but they want to win because Ligue 1 is their primary goal and they want to write themselves in the history of the club. They want to win and they are competitors. People think it’s easy to win, it isn’t. This season is a tough race for the title. they must continue to give their all. they win matches, that’s the most important thing.
