Mauricio Pochettino: “The way we started the match was unacceptable.”

Following PSG’s 3-0 defeat away to Monaco this afternoon, Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the press about the game as well as the current atmosphere around the club.

On the game

“I’m disappointed with the way we started the game. It’s unacceptable. At this level, you can’t start a game the way we did. We can be happy going into half-time at only 1-0 down because they could have had two or three. In the second half, it was better, we created chances but we paid for our first half. I think it’s really not acceptable to start a match the way we did.”

On the atmosphere after Champions League elimination

“It’s clear that the Champions League has done a lot of damage. The team should clearly let go of all that. It’s stopping us from expressing our best productivity. This international break should allow for a change in mentality and put us back to where we should be. We have to come back with the responsibility that goes along with putting on this shirt.”
