Paris St Germain boss, Pochettino might likely be unleashing the trio, Messi, Neymar and Mbappe against Club Brugge as they meet today, Wednesday September 15th in this season’s champions league campaign at Belgium.
Fans are really keen to see this world class trio play together while in the field and Pochettino might see to it today.
When asked in a interview if he will play the super trio, Pochettino replied “Maybe, yes. It is possible.”
Last time PSG met with the Belgium Club, Brugge, it was an easy game that ended in 5:0 final score in favour of PSG, as Mbappe got a hat trick while Icardi scored a brace.
Pochettino who is quite confident that he has gotten the super front trio in his squad said: “I will have to get on board all the excitement because I know how excited everyone is, I would be crazy to think otherwise.”
If Messi should feature in today’s game against Club Brugge, it will be his 150th Champions League appearance after previously turning out 149 times for Barcelona, scoring 120 goals and providing 35 assists so far.
Pochettino also gave his comments on the speculations that his club is one of the major contenders for the Champions League this season against England’s defending champions Chelsea. He said: “Chelsea are the holders and they are the team to beat, if there is one.
“They have also strengthened by signing good players and have spent a lot more money than Paris Saint-Germain.
“We are not a team yet. We are a club that has recruited many players this summer. There are some very big names, but we have to turn into a team in the way that Chelsea did last season.
“Chelsea are the team to beat because they achieved their targets. We are a group of players that need to achieve the target of becoming a solid team in order to get the results that we want.
“There are no timeframes. At Paris Saint-Germain, you will be judged on the results that you achieve. There is always pressure at every club and in this case at PSG the club has been targeting a dream for many years of winning the Champions League, and that is something that we cannot deny.” he concluded.
PSG hope to make an impact in this season’s champions league as they’ve got the best front trio of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe.
