Thierry Henry’s bitter truth on Pochettino and PSG


Thierry Henry provided a tactical briefing regarding PSG’s shortcomings observed against Manchester City. The former Arsenal player, who has always strong opinions as a consultant, explains that Pochettino’s tactics are doomed to fail at the microphone of Sky Sports.If you want to win the Champions League, you can’t defend with seven players. It’s impossible, I don’t care who you are. The defenders are completely exposed, so it’s practically a three-on-one, three-on-two on the pitch. A team that wins titles – and even more the Champions League – has its first three against the ball. This way, the full-backs will feel more comfortable with what is going on behind them. But for the moment, they are too exposed. The teams in France cannot expose them, but Man City can ”,

Henry also evokes the lack of grip of the Argentine coach, unable to force some players to defend for team balance. A problem that makes PSG a team cut in two. And for the consultant, it is the fault of the leaders, too permissive with certain stars: “You have to ask who is in charge. The players or the coach? Tuchel could not defend the stars. Arriving at Chelsea, the players listened. If the coach cannot be strong with certain people to keep them happy because of some pressure, then it becomes difficult“.
