UCL: We wanted to win Champions League – PSG speaks on Pochettino’s future after 3-1 loss to Real Madrid

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director, Leonardo has spoken on the future of manager, Mauricio Pochettino after their 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League round of sixteen on Wednesday.

He said Pochettino is “still part of the project for this season” which is a confirmation that the Argentine could leave the club in the summer.

PSG were 2-0 up on aggregate, with just 30 minutes to go in the second leg, before Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick in just 17 minutes to kill the French side’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

Before Leonardo’s comments last night, there were already doubts over whether Pochettino would still be at PSG next season.

“We shouldn’t throw everything in the bin. We shouldn’t start from scratch after every loss,” Leonardo told RMC Sport, via Get French Football News.

“The objective is to win the Champions League, and until half time, we were fine. We have to look to improve this team and maintain morale to play in Ligue 1 and to finish the season well.

“We should stay together. Pochettino is still part of the project for this season. It’s not the time to think about that.”
