Therefore, in an interview with Mauricio Pochettino In El Partidazo of COPE and Radio MARCA, the Argentine coach referred to the situation of the 22-year-old forward.
“Mbappé is fine. He is a calm boy, with a lot of personality and a very sociable character. He is clear about things and loves football. He is 22 years old, but has a very high maturity to handle this type of situation about his future. I have no doubt that Kylian can face any challenge that comes his way in the future ”, Pochettino argued.
“Soccer players cannot be underestimated. They have environments and people who advise, but they have their own decision ”, added the coach of PSG, who also stated that “The club will do everything possible to keep Kylian, because we are talking about one of the best players in the world, with 22 years old and great potential. Who can think that PSG does not want him to continue here for many more years? The club is going to try to convince and seduce him to continue here. “
For all this, Mauricio Pochettino maintained that he prefers to leave the situation open in the Mbappé case, but that “PSG as a club has the hope and the ability to seduce him and to offer him things so that he can stay and be happy.
