Pochettino, PSG and the analogy with the Globetrotters

Mauricio Pochettino has a very clear vision of football, and he transmits it in the same way. A little over a year after assuming the technical direction of Paris Saint-Germain, the Rosario was encouraged to take stock of what he lived so far in a note with the official PSG website and the analogy he used to explain what difficult it is to find the balance between competing and giving a good show is not wasted.

“Aesthetics in sport is important. For us, the coaching staff, aesthetics is fundamental,” began the deté. “We seek to play football well, make football happy, attractive, football that the fan enjoys, but personally I believe that soccer is also about competing. We are in a very professional environment and many times competing makes you unable to play well; It causes that there are games in which you do not play in the best way but that you win them because you compete well. They are two different things: one thing is to play and another is to compete, and many times winning, competing in the best way, does not mean that we do the best football we can offer. I think balance is the most important thing. Playing in the best way, trying to make our people enjoy ourselves, that we ourselves enjoy, but that we also get good results, “he added.

Pochettino’s explanation was followed by the juiciest phrase of the interview. A comparison that undoubtedly resembles reality, at least from what the names they have on the campus generate and what each of them is known to do. “If it was only about playing well and not competing we would be the Globetrotters (NdeR: basketball traveling exhibition box founded in 1926), only give a show, but they do not compete, they only play. Us we are a soccer team that must compete and at the same time give a show, and many times that balance is not found … Although we know that at PSG you have to achieve that balance “.

Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Ángel Di María, Danilo and Julian Draxler are just some of the players on the squad who have contracted the virus in recent times.
