I hope he excels at his new job

He can finally win something
PSG haters when they realize Pochetinno played for psg 20 years ago: wait they existed?

"If Neymar doesn't want to defend he won't defend" I would send him the picture of him after the champions league final until he starts defending
Hope he wins the CL. Good luck from a united fan.

I promise you ten months from now when psg are struggling these two will be blaming the manager and saying he wasn't the right man for the job
Mauricio transformed Tottenham and made me live the best 5 years as a Tottenham fan. Good luck boss! You have my energy.

Can they go a day without talking about Neymar or Mbappe? It’s getting old. Tuchel wasn’t fired because of “player power” but because of his relationship with Leonardo.

Poch did amazing to get Spurs to the CL Final which they lost, PSG is a whole next level, they aim to win the CL every year with the talent and stars they have, getting 1st in Ligue 1 should be automatic, CL is the only prize.
Knows how the club works? They did not have this kind of money, culture, and spotlight and spotlight that they have now. If they let him do his job he will be fine.

That is why big clubs need big managers. PSG dressing room could never bring their egos to Klopp and Pep.

This guy really pointed to what if Neymar doesn't track back?!? He tracked back a lot more than Mbappe and Di Maria did lmao just look at his last goal against United. He dispossessed a United player on their half of the pitch and ran the full length to be in a position to score. Neymar tracking back won't be a problem.

PSG is a party club, not champions league winner. And, this wont change with Pochettino.

He'll do well and bring in and develop youth from PSG's academy which is among the best in the world. The problem is that as soon as he had a rift with someone or saw attitude problems at Spurs, he sold them. Dealing with egos is something he hasn't really done yet because he thrives on creating a family environment with a smaller squad and these are astronimical egos.
PSG: Would you like to be our manager?
Poch: Do you still have UEFAs pockets?
Poch has won more with PSG than spurs already

I love it how you understand how difficult it is to manage star players yet you guys criticize them as if you can

I guess except from amazing wages PSG job must be one of the stressful ones since your 2 mains stars crack like a chips. Id have to drink 2 bromazepams before every game hoping neymar and mbappe dont suffer a 6 month injury.
I still feel like Poch will turn up at Spurs 1 day, Doesn't feel right not seeing him at Spurs
It's easier to impose discipline when you were yourself a player and know what you talk about. For example Zidane does not need to shout, his experience is so big that players follow him easily.

Frank, what does a Latin education have to do with doing well as a manager?😂😂
Czar Yobero
Czar Yobero:
This whole notion of having to managing superstars’ egos is a tad bit overblown. It’s not like Tuchel was such a pushover that it hurt the club.
Player power is over-exaggerated. Footballers are professional if they see a manager with vision, tactics and leadership.

even steve bruce can win the French league with PSG !! poch will only be a success if he wins the UCL and wont get more than 2 seasons to deliver

I’m not gonna lie. I don’t understand half the words that come out of Frank’s mouth.

Jules is a funny guy. Alway winking and nodding while he listens
If the coach is paid 100000 per week and the player is paid 800000 per week the weight of influence is firmly in the favour of the one who is 8-10 times more expensive.
Nikhil Amin
Nikhil Amin:
Poch at Spurs and Southampton had teams who were aggressove with the press and very hard working. I can't really see Neymar and Mbappe fully committed to that style, he should still have enough to win Ligue 1 but I just think the team won't be as cohesive as he would like
Harsh Giri
Harsh Giri:
Very good move by psg & pocchettino will go for Eriksen & alli in psg bcz psg have great attacking team but they need more players in midfield
Man I wanted poch at dortmund so badly
He is a top class manager going to be interesting

PSG is like swimming in the ocean for someone who only swims in lakes

But Tuchel coached them to UCL final. Will Ney and Imbappe want to play for him?

This was a great assertion for psg. Pochettino might even make messi move to paris. Sorry tuchel, but you were not big enough to handle a Locke room plagued with superstars.
Mr. Dyce

Y he saying Messi wont track back when he legit did a 1 hour interview explaining how he respect the coach and what he is trying to do and will give everything to the club to this season, sigh

Jose and Pep are great if they want to prove who is in charge they can put stars out and still win matches

The Question is what is success at PSG? A manager like tuchel winning all trophies apart from CL still got sacked so what is the expectations for poch
He will win the league..Congrats Poch..At least he will win something at PSG..
Rory Blessington
Rory Blessington:
Well that’s a tenner in the bag! Now let’s get the other 4 right lads. The other 4 are:
1) Messi stays at Barça
2) Southampton get Europa
3) Ole gets sacked and is replaced by Allegri/Man Utd miss top 4
4) Athletico Madrid wins La Liga
1/5 ✅

The Pooch doesn't have the experience to manage players Mbappe and Neymar, and neither did Tuchel. But best of luck to Qatar FC!

So United missed out on Guardiola, Klopp, and now Poch, while appointment Moyes, LVG, Mourinho, and Ole. Glazers and Woodward are utter clowns.

Are these players grown up ?
Mbappe is just like any player in the team . He is not exceptional player
Neymar is the deal 👌

Mbappe will Shine through his management just like how Harry Kane did in the PL
The Video Shot

No more excuses of not having a budget or players. I still feel he is a tad bit overrated and a bottler. Couldn't win a zero trophy with almost world class players like Kane/son.. and a great CB pairing on their peak Jan and Toby.

1:04 "nouveau" which means new, thank me later 🤣🤣
If he don't win a CL than what cause I don't rate the french cup 🍵

Tuchel>>> Poch
Kevin Pillay
Kevin Pillay:
Frank is right when he says time for the club to grow up. They have their sugar daddy and all the resources so is winning French league all they crave? No they want Europe domination and they need to give a coach the chance to do it his way. The owners need to be leave to Poch and of Neymar etc not happy then let them go. Chelsea owner also learned to let the football people do their jobs and when Mour got there and they let him be and the platform was laid. So the PSG hierarchy will need to be strong now to really become European force.
Abu Ceesay
Abu Ceesay:
Big super stars not defending is not new in football and will never go away. You want them to use most of their energy in the attacking aspect and be closer to the final third.
Hopefully he can do the job
Every coach in psg win the league easily,they are hired to win the champions league but i wonder how long will take for neymar and mbappe to sack him
fahad alawadi
fahad alawadi:
How is speaking Spanish is relevant to this conversation ?
Julien needs to switch to decaf
The first thing he should do is sign a reliable defender like koulibaly

Neymar Kane Mbappe = champions league

If some of the PSG players are spoiled or drama queens then the coach needs to bench some of them for games.

Frank got it wrong on the point that ronaldinho was also a leader of psg when pochard was the captain, ronaldinho was just a 19 year old boy who just signed from gremio in Brazil.

IDK man NEYMAR and KYLIAN are divas but it can work out but it can also go wrong

no other club can compete PsG in their League due to their financial we can only judge poch in the CL ,😛😛😛😛😛

Psg would not win the champions league in the next decade, even with Neymar
Youtuba Slaat
Youtuba Slaat:
Poch will be successful at PSG he a coach with a profile and Tuchel was not, Neymar and Mbappe will get behind him
Ellery FG
Ellery FG:
It's funny how they say PSG sits third in Ligue 1, by what 1 point? That's no lead anywhere and PSG had won their last game 4-0. They are just entertaining or trying to, not doing any serious or responsible analysis. I'm 🤏 close to turning of all notifications from this channel due to this poor journalism if you can call it that. Tuchel was released simply because he didn't get along with Leonardo. He did and was doing a great job with PSG. With a squad plagued with injuries and missing key players from the previous campaign and no important signings or even the ones requested by the coach. There was no communication between Tuchel and Leonardo that's why they let him go
joey blaq
joey blaq:
Yep,Let the politics begin😎
If Pochettino clicks with PSG, then I expect another big humiliation for Barcelona. Messi better leave in January or he will be humiliated for the 6th year in a row.

Ask Barca how the replacement of Valverde with Setien turned out.

Pochettino is an average overated coach like tuchel. Winning the league a with PSG doesn't count much just like Ronaldo winning the Seria A with Juventus.
The Formula Sports
The Formula Sports:
Well pochettino haters cant use the "he hasnt won any trophies" argument anymore
Zidane Jose or Pep are the only ones that can control those egos at psg, I always thought tuchel at psg was an obvious mismatch that was never going to work. They wouldn’t or he couldn’t implement his style of play because psg want results now. Good luck poch could end in similar fashion

Juls blinking!!
Still won’t win the Champions League though !
A A:
You can’t win 10 James Miller or Gattuso in a team. You need creative player like Neymar and he doesn’t need to waste his energy for chasing others.
Per T pesc
Per T pesc:
He's out in about 2 months .
Poch are trophy intolerant.
Has nothing to show to.
Free hands in Tottenham for 5 years . 350 mill £ in 23 New players . Eriksen , Kane was there from before .
This shows , he can not build a team.
Eseh Francis Morara
Eseh Francis Morara:
Enough with this agenda against Neymar. Anyone who watches knows he creates most of their chances and works harder than any midfielder/forward in that team especially in big games. There are many games like the one against United where he wins the ball in own half and creates chances for Mbappe, Di Maria, Sarabia etc just take a look at the Atalanta game among many other UCL games. To suggest Neymar is not hardworking is highly laughable
Ahamed Thanseek S
Ahamed Thanseek S:
Where is the video of Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo review. ?? You guys didn't upload it
This whole narrative of him knowing the club very well is false in this case, he played for PSG for a couple of seasons when their was a different ownership in place. The club has grown in stature under the heavy investment by the Qataris.

So we have to stop this narrative.
