Pochettino tells once again why he decided to replace Messi

Even before the season started well, Mauricio Pochettino has to face the controversy caused by Lionel Messi.

Leo left the field angry when Pochettino decided to replace him in the challenge that PSG was drawing 1-1 with Lyon, a meeting that the locals won in the end with the goal of Mauro Icardi.

Pochettino said that he removed Messi from the game after he noticed that he had problems, an injury that has already been officially confirmed by the club and Leo will not play tomorrow with Paris.

“I understand the surprise of Messi’s replacement and I accept it as such. We saw that Leo was touching his foot and we made that decision,” said Pochettino.

In the end it turned out that the coach was right, despite Messi’s nervousness, as Leo is injured and this has been confirmed by the tests during today and it is not known if he will lose more than one match.
