While the PSG is on the wane, Lionel Messi is questioning more and more about the skills of Mauricio Pochettino, especially on the tactical level.
The fall will have been gloomy to say the least. PSG. Yet the summer had been spectacular. Consequence of a five-star recruitment marked by the arrivals of Lionel messi, Sergio ramos, Georginio wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma or Achraf Hakimi. But except during the first round against Manchester City, the capital club never managed to meet the (huge) expectations placed on him.

The accounting situation of the Rouge et Bleu is certainly nothing to worry about. PSG in fact flies over Ligue 1 with no less than 11 lengths ahead of its runner-up, Stade Rennais, and is also already guaranteed to play in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Second in their group and therefore under the threat of a double confrontation of all the dangers facing one of the scarecrows of the start of the season (Liverpool, Chelsea or Bayern Munich …), the Parisians will undoubtedly have to show something else by next february.
Because if the PSG has in the end 15 wins, 5 draws and 2 defeats in 22 matches in all competitions since the start of the season, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are not convincing. And not just the observers. To believe The team, Lionel Messi and his relatives would begin to seriously doubt the Argentinian technician, in particular because of his tactical choices. The fault in particular with a game plan considered too hard.
In the entourage of the club, it is also considered that the Parisian coach has also lost a good part of his credit with his players. The consequence, this time, of a management deemed too flexible. If he does not hesitate, sometimes, to reframe his troops, his propensity to always want to spare the susceptibilities of each reaches its limits when the PSG is struggling as it is now.
