Mauricio Pochettino on Rafinha’s lack of playing time

Speaking in a press conference on Tuesday, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino was asked why he has not included 27-year-old midfielder Rafinha much since the ex-Tottenham boss took over, who has played just 20 minutes during this period in fact.

All the decisions are football-related. In Rafa’s case, he was impacted by COVID-19 when we arrived. We have a strong squad and we take decisions. It is important to be ready when the moment comes. These are footballing decisions, and he will have opportunities.”
