During the press conference organized this Friday on the eve of the clash between Paris Saint-Germain and LOSC in Ligue 1, Mauricio Pochettino did not escape questions concerning the future of Kylian Mbappé.
Under contract until June 2022, the Parisian striker has not always extended his contract in favor of the club in the French capital and negotiations have stalled for a few weeks as the main interested party wishes to take his time before make such an important decision for his future. The player’s statements this week after the match in Bosnia-Herzegovina (France’s 1-0 victory) did not really reassure Parisian supporters. Mauricio Pochettino, for his part, remains rather serene about this file and trusts his striker to stay focused on the club’s goals.
Kylian arrived on Thursday in a good mood and in a very good state of mind. Regarding playing time management, it won’t be just for Kylian. We will see the management for the whole team and not just for Kylian, in order to achieve the end-of-season goals. Things are done in time, each party takes its time for the decision. I don’t think the end of Kylian Mbappé’s season will be affected by all of this. He is focused on giving the best in every training and every game in order to help the team reach the set goals. He is focused on giving the best of himself, assured the coach of PSG.
