PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino hails players performance in victory over Manchester City.

Paris Saint Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino hails his players for victory over Manchester City in the Champions League.

The French team host England champions in the Champions League group stage match.

PSG put 2 goals past Manchester City in the game to claim victory as goals from Idrissa Gueye and Leo Messi sealed the 3 points.

Speaking to RMC Sport, he said: “I think the team put in a good performance.

“We were able to take the pressure during the difficult periods of the game, against a very good Manchester City side. We were able to play, to attack when it was needed.

“Teams are built over time, these kinds of matches help do that. We’re trying to grow, to build something.

“We have a very positive squad that knows what it needs to do. It was a great match from our players, they have to be congratulated. It was a great collective effort. Of course, there are things to improve.”

Pochettino also hails former Barcelona player Messi for his goal says he had to celebrate because it was his first for the club he manages.

“I’ve spent 20 years watching him score goals from the other side of the opposite pavement and it’s the first time he scores for a team I manage so I had to celebrate.

“First goal in our side, now that we are in the same side I enjoyed a lot and so happy to be here enjoying Leo’s first goal.

“He’s top class, I know I’m not saying anything new but I think with time he still has room to improve a lot.”
