Mauricio Pochettino talks about Manchester United job

Manchester United managerial goal Mauricio Pochettino insisted that his Paris Saint Germain the stars know his situation as reports linking him to a start of the French capital increase.

Pochettino was not PSG manager since January, but is believed to be ready to move on after being frustrated with the realities of taking over the Ligue 1 giants.

By a fluke of fate, the Argentine traveled to Manchester this week as his PSG side faced off against Manchester city in their fifth game of the Champions League group stages.

But if this match served as the audition, it’s the one Pochettino failed as his side were beaten by City in what was a much more comfortable victory than the score suggested for Pep Guardiola’s men.

Kylian Mbappe put the visitors ahead five minutes in the second half, after Lionel messi the cross had taken a deviation.

But City were finally able to assert their dominance of possession after Mbappe’s opener, having controlled the game so far.

First, Raheem Sterling claimed the equalizer when he squeezed Kyle Walker’s square pass at the far post.

Then Gabriel Jesus gave City a lead they wouldn’t give up with a predatory finish after Bernando Silva’s brilliant dismissal.

Many post-match questions have focused on Pochettino’s ties to United’s work, with some questioning whether the swirling rumors have had a negative effect on his side at PSG.

Pochettino is believed to be ready to move to United immediately as the Red Devils saw an approach for him rejected by PSG ahead of City’s defeat.

But despite the potentially negative impact it could have on his current squad, the Argentine insisted they were well aware of his situation.

“The players know our situation very well,” said Pochettino, when asked if he needed to reassure them of his commitment to PSG.

“We know their situation. We live in a company where rumors are there, sometimes negative, sometimes positive. It’s not something to talk about – rumors.

Despite the defeat against City, PSG secured their place in the round of 16 of the Champions League.

And Pochettino insisted the loss will serve him well before the competition is over.

“I think the first half was difficult because Manchester City forced us to play deeper and that can be a good or a worse situation,” Pochettino told PSG TV.

“We suffered, but you have to know how to suffer at this level, in the Champions League, and against a team like Manchester City, there are times when you have to suffer.

“In the second half I think we started better, I think we controlled the game a few times and we scored.

“Afterwards, the circumstances of the team did not help us to continue in the same way and then we conceded a goal.

“A little disappointed but the qualification is there. We wanted to be the first so yes disappointed on this point.
