Substituting Messi in the second half, Pochettino stands by his decision

The long-awaited home debut i Leo Messit with PSG, does not seem to have gone as expected. The Argentine superstar was replaced by coach Pochettino in the second half of the meeting, surprising the fans present at the stadium, but also a part of the sports opinion. The Parisians won against Lyon, but even this time the difficulties were obvious.

it was Mauro Icardi who scored the winning goal for the locals, a goal that came only in the extra minutes at the end of the meeting. Although this was the 6th victory, in the same number of matches played for the French, Messi's departure in the second half has brought reactions of all kinds. And the lottery player himself had a brief communication with Pochettino, at the moment he left the field, and from the mimicry of the face it was clear that he was not satisfied. 

But, these reactions do not seem to bother PSG bench number 1. The former Tottenham manager stated after the match:

"I think we all know that we have extraordinary players in our team of 35 people. But only 11 can play, no more. Decisions made during the game are for the benefit of the team and the players themselves. "

Pochettino also added:

"All coaches think about the decisions they make. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes players like it, and other times not. At the end of the day that's why we're here. These are the decisions that need to be made by the coach. "As for exchanging words with him (Messi), I asked him if he was okay… he said yes."

The next match for PSG will be the one against Metz in the transfer. Messi will hope to find the first goal with the PSG jersey, as the Argentine was stopped from the post in the match against Lyon.
