This was conveyed by Pochettino ahead of the away duel against Clermont Foot in the 2021/2022 French League continuation, at Stade Gabriel Montpied, Sunday (10/4/2022) early morning.
The Argentine coach is aware that Mbappe has the potential to leave PSG at the end of the season. The French striker is rumored to be joining Real Madrid.
However, Pochettino admits he wants to make the right decision for PSG. He wants Mbappe to stay because he can make him the best player under the sky.
“As a coach, I want the best for him and the club. And what is best for the club is for Kylian to stay here. But that is also the best for him as a footballer,” said Pochettino.
Pochettino hopes that Mbappe will continue to contribute to PSG in every match, including against Clermont. Because, the 23-year-old talent will be made captain.
The former Tottenham Hotspur tactician explained why Mbappe would serve as field general. This is because Marquinhos must be absent.
“To fight Clermont, because Marquinhos will be absent, he (Mbappe) will enter to be a reflection for the team. The opportunity to be captain,” he said, quoted by Tuttomercatoweb.
