Several weeks after leaving PSG, Mbappés former coach, Mauricio Pochettino, spoke about his departure from the Parisian side to give the job to Christophe Galtier. In an interview, the Argentine clarified whether Kylian Mbappé manages the new PSG project after his renewal.

It is worth noting that when Mbappé's renewal with PSG until 2025 was announced, many rumors began to point out that the French striker had made it a condition that he be allowed to decide on several team issues, such as the board or transfers.

Despite all that has been said, Pochettino doubts that Mbappé was in charge of designing the new PSG, who would have allegedly asked the board to remove the Argentine and Leonardo, former sporting director.

"I don't think it's Kylian who designed the new project. Those in charge, in this case the president, are the ones who will have thought that a new project at the club was the most convenient. What I believe is that PSG has done everything possible to retain Kylian and I agree with that too. He is one of the best players in world soccer today”, the manager shared.

It should be recalled that a couple of months ago the departure of the French attacker was theorized and his destination pointed towards Real Madrid. However, the rumors were completely destroyed when the PSG management renewed Kylian's contract until 2025.
