Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino has denied that Kylian Mbappe played any role in getting him sacked at the club.
Pochettino’s exit was officially confirmed last month, after the Argentine again failed to deliver the Champions League title.
Ever since then, there has been speculation that Mbappe was behind his dismissal.
But Mbappe himself had strongly denied playing any part in Pochettino’s sack.
“What I think is that PSG has done everything possible to retain Kylian and I also agree with that.
“He is one of the best players in world football today and I think that PSG, having all the resources to do it, have convinced him to stay. But I don’t think Kylian is the one who designed the new project either [that saw me leave].
“Those who rule, in this case the president, are those who would have thought that the most convenient thing was a new project in the club,” Pochettino told Infobae.
