Antonio Conte defends Mauricio Pochettino after PSG and Lionel Messi struggle against Club Brugge
The Metro says Antonio Conte has leapt to the defence of Maurico Pochettino after Paris Saint-Germain and Lionel Messi faced huge criticism for their performance in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Club Brugge.
The French side – who added a host of superstars to their squad over the summer – took an early lead through Ander Herrera in their opening Champions League group game but were pegged back by Hans Vanaken’s equaliser and could not find a winner.
Messi was making his first start for PSG since leaving Barcelona but had a quiet game, missing a great chance to put his side ahead late on, while the entire attack struggled to click.
