Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino has reacted to his side’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg victory over Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Pochettino watched as PSG defeated Real Madrid 1-0 in Paris last night.
Kylian Mbappe scored a late stoppage-time goal to give PSG the win over Real Madrid.
Reacting, Pochettino, who spoke to PSG TV after the game, said he was very pleased with his players.
The former Tottenham Hotspur manager also said that PSG deserved the win over Real Madrid, describing the LaLiga giants as an amazing team.
“I think it was amazing the performance, I am very pleased for the players. I think we deserved the victory. In the last minute, in the last action, it was good. But in that moment you only enjoy it for a few seconds, because in your mind it’s ‘ok in three weeks we have the next game.’
“I think Real Madrid is an amazing team, a very good team and it’s always difficult to play there. But if we show this type of performance and this level, I think we have to hope that we can be in the next stage. It’s important for us, for the confidence, and now we have three weeks to prepare for the game. I think it’s always better when you get this type of feeling, it’s always easier.”
He added, “The fans were fantastic and of course, there was amazing support and energy and the players were fantastic. That connection must always be on the pitch, always during 95 minutes because that is really, really powerful.”
