Pochettino says French title ‘not enough’


Embattled Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino said Sunday that the team can rebuild from their latest Champions League failure but admitted that their 10th French league title was not enough.

Amid repeated media reports that the Qatari owned French giants are looking for a new coach, Pochettino spoke out during a brief trip to Doha where he could meet with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.He told a press conference that Paris had to learn from the last 16 defeat by Real Madrid, who scored three times in the final 30 minutes to send the French side crashing out.

“The objective is always in a club like Paris Saint Germain to win the Champions League,” said the 50-year-old Argentine. “The most important (thing) is to try to build something special,” added the former Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton coach.

“The important thing is to learn from the experience. This football club is building to win.” Pochettino reaffirmed his claim that Paris were “better” than Real Madrid, who will take on Liverpool in this year’s final, in their clash.—AFP
