Mauricio Pochettino wants to take it slow with Mauro Icardi

Speaking to reporters following his first victory as PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino discussed where Mauro Icardi might fit into his longer-term plans, having returned from injury on Saturday night to make a substitute appearance in the 3-0 win over Brest.

“We have to go slowly. Mauro is coming back from a significant injury. He is working very well. Little by little, he is coming back into the squad, into competitive action. For Mauro, like for all the players, it is important to be able to feel like you have the possibility to play. They also have to be prepared to be ready when they are on the pitch. What I am expecting, is that everyone makes it difficult for me to select my starting XI.”
