PSG: Why I wasn’t surprised by Mbappe’s decision to snub Real Madrid – Pochettino

Published

on

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has revealed that he was not surprised by forward Kylian Mbappe’s decision to snub Real Madrid because his team were confident the France World Cup winner had not made the decision to join the LaLiga champions.

Pochettino also claimed that no PSG player was informed by Mbappe, apart from his close friend, Achraf Hakimi.

Recall that Mbappe stunned Real Madrid last weekend by agreeing to a new three-year deal at PSG reportedly worth £1million per week, despite initially pushing to join the Los Blancos earlier this year.

“I was not surprised by Mbappe’s decision,” Pochettino told Spanish radio show ‘El Partidazo de COPE’.

“We were confident that he hadn’t made the decision and that it was going to be at the last moment.

“The whole PSG dressing room found out about Mbappe’s decision half an hour before. Only Achraf Hakimi knew about it [beforehand].

“Officially, I found out about Mbappe’s renewal half an hour before. Even being close to him, we didn’t know his final decision. I was told by the president.

“Obviously, it’s a disappointment for Real Madrid not to have signed Mbappe.

“I’m not going to give my opinion. Decisions are decisions. For the club, the people, the French league, it’s something that’s going to benefit [everyone].”

EPL: I’ll be surprised if he starts matches at Manchester United – Rio Ferdinand on Eriksen

Published

on

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has said that Christian Eriksen will force his way into the squad but will not play ahead of Bruno Fernandes.

Eriksen, whose contract with Brentford has just ended, has reportedly verbally agreed to move to Old Trafford and will be signing a three-year contract at the club.

Erik ten Hag is eager to fix Eriksen into Man United midfield with the departure of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, and Jesse Lingard this summer.

Ferdinand believes the former Tottenham and Inter Milan star will be a welcome addition to the squad.

However, the former England defender questions whether the Denmark international will get into the team ahead of Bruno Fernandes since the two occupy the same role on the pitch.

“I think Christian Eriksen is a squad player. He doesn’t come as a starter, I would be very surprised if he comes into Manchester United as a starter,” Ferdinand told Five.

“I think he’ll come in and play a particular role in and around it.

“The position he is likely to occupy will be similar to Bruno Fernandes and I don’t see him taking him out of the team.”

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has explained why Cristiano Ronaldo has not returned for pre-season training with the club.

Speaking on his FIVE YouTube Channel, Ferdinand insisted that a family member of Ronaldo is having health issues.

The 37-year-old is yet to show up at Carrington ahead of the new season, amid talk he has requested to leave United this summer.

But Ferdinand said: “I’ve been seeing people being a touch disrespectful. The way that people are questioning ‘he’s not here’ and the hysteria surrounding it. A member of his family is not well, so he’s not at training.

“This is the most consummate, most professional athlete that we’ve seen on these shores. The most professional athlete we’ve seen for over 15 years and people are questioning this guy’s professionalism and why he’s not at the training ground.

“Yeah he might want to leave, he might not be happy with certain things at the football club, but in terms of professionalism, this guy is training where he is – we’ve seen the pictures.

“His family are there, he needs to be where they are and you have to respect that. Simple as. Could it have been communicated better by the club? Probably.”
