Daniel Riolo, journalist from RMC Sport, spoke at the microphone of the sports media after the draw of Paris Saint-Germain (0-0, find the summary here) against Nice this Wednesday at the Parc des Princes as part of the 16th day of Ligue 1 2021- 2022. He notably affirmed that the coach Mauricio Pochettino has “ cowardly “ and that PSG are in talks with coach Zinedine Zidane.

” It’s incomprehensible. Clearly Pochettino let go and I think the players let him go too. Messi? He hasn’t been any worse than he’s seen since the start of the season. Mbappé you have the impression that he does not care about the mouth of the world, honestly you have that impression! When he wants to play, he plays. But this Wednesday I do not know if he is doing 5 kilometers… honestly he does not want to run. Hakimi we no longer recognize him. Okay, but it’s been a few weeks since. Finally, it has neither tail nor head.
Riolo « it discusses very seriously. “
I think Pochettino is over. Clearly it is burnt. Zidane, I had announced Messi to PSG in December, I am not far from trying the bet that he could come this winter. Hermel has any info to say Zidane isn’t interested? I also have information on the subject, and it is very serious discussion. “
We always remain cautious in the face of these speeches around a coach who would have ” cowardly ” a club or players who would do the same with the coach. It’s not as if the Parisian team gives the feeling of just giving the victory to Nice. On the other hand, it sorely lacks offensive ideas and collective strength to recover the ball. Pochettino may have the urge to improve things, but one can start to doubt that he has the solutions. However, there is no question of a start as the season remains interesting in terms of points.
A change of coach in the coming months does not seem impossible, however, and Zidane is the most talked about track at the moment. Although Hermel, also a journalist for RMC Sport, announced a few days ago that the former Real Madrid is not interested in PSG. This prompts caution in the face of Riolo’s announcement, since the file remains very vague. But this is not a track to forget, for the moment. Except that there is nothing concrete or certain.
