Pochettino Shares his thoughts on Kylian Mbappé-Neymar incident.
Speaking on his prematch press for tomorrows Champions League game against Manchester City, Pochettino tried to downplay the feud between Kylian Mbappé and Neymar.
He described the situation as “special situations”.
He also said : “They’re two fantastic guys. In football, these kinds of things happen between competitors. Here, the objective is to win. [The incident] made a lot of noise outside of the club, but internally it was nothing. The two had a chat, I spoke with them as well and you saw in training that they were laughing among themselves.”
“[On substitutions] The team is calm. The players are calm and training well. There is a good atmosphere. I’ll say it again: we are at a special club and we have to accept the fact that we will go through special situations, that are different to elsewhere. This has to be understood. But the squad is doing very well and is very well balanced.”
