Halfway through the match with Paris Saint-Germain winning 3-2 against Brest, Mauricio Pochettino decided to add another chapter to the story of Kylian Mbappé and in the 81st minute, the striker was replaced by Angel Di Maria. Brest were a goal away from tying the game but Pochettino did not put on a defender or a holding midfielder but replaced Mbappé with Di Maria. The Frenchman left angry with the coach, he never wants to leave and showed it with his bad face.
Mbappé left without greeting the coach Mauricio Pochettino and sat on the bench full of anger. The 7 did not avoid and did not try to hide his anger to leave even though the game was almost at the end but nothing decided.
And of course, the departure of Mbappé, the non greeting with Pochettino, set off the alarm bells about the possible departure from PSG. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are still waiting to present the best offer for the Frenchman but most likely the transfer will be made next year.
Pochettino on the departure of Mbappé
Faced with these transcendents, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, came out to deny and stated that the subject is even treated as a joke within the squad. "It's a period that I take with humor. It's part of soccer. Many things are said. The most important thing is that Kylian lives it calmly," said the Argentine coach.
Mbappé is a PSG player, so he does not see him out of the team at least for this season, although the fact that his contract ends in 2022, could mean his departure to any other club, with Real Madrid being the most interested. "Even if he doesn't renew, he's still a PSG player. I am happy with him, and I think he is happy with us," Pochettino concluded.
