Mauricio Pochettino: “Mbappé has played a lot, maybe he has to run less centrally.”

Speaking to RMC Sport ahead of tonight’s clash with Bayern Munich, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino discussed his team selection.

We have different options in terms of playing, we have just come back from the international break. Julian (Draxler) has experience, he can bring us a lot of things, we did an analysis of the squad, it was a combination of all that. We hope to have a good match. Kylian (Mbappé) has played a lot of matches, we prefer to put him centrally, maybe to run less. We hope to have the right formula to go ahead to victory. I am expecting concentration and intensity, which we lacked against Lille. We need to be more constant, this is a Champions’ League matches, all the players want to play in this sort of match. We are facing the best team in Europe. We have to play together, aggressively. The most important thing is balance, consistency. That has been difficult this season, even with a different manager.”
