Pochettino says he ‘welcomes’ Messi to PSG
Mauricio Pochettino, Paris Saint-Germain manager, has said Lionel Messi is welcome at the club.
Pochettino became manager of the Ligue 1 champions last week, after Thomas Tuchel was removed from the club.
Already in his attack he has Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, alongside Angel Di Maria.
However, with Messi’s future still unclear at Barcelona, there are speculations he could leave for either PSG or Manchester City.
“We leave the rumours aside. All great players are welcome at PSG,” Pochettino told a press conference.
“Father Christmas has been generous with me, I take this opportunity to thank President Nasser [Al-Khelaifi] and [sporting director] Leonardo for the trust and to be in this great club and back in this house.
“It’s one of the biggest clubs, if not the biggest in the world, so it’s normal that there are rumours. We have just arrived so we leave them aside.”
