"The Balloon of Gold has to be for Messi​, without any doubt. And if it did not train to Messi, would say Messi". These words of Mauritius Pochettino does some days seems that they could have caused some brush in Paris Saint-Germain. As it explained the own trainer of the French picture, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappé could have bothered by not to have agreed of them to the hour to mention to the winner of the next Balloon of Gold.

The technician ensured after the last party of the PSG that both had him recriminado not to have them appointed in a subject like this. Although it said it with a smile in the face and in apparent tone jokingly, this does not remove that have his part for real. "Had a problem for saying that Messi had to win it. Afterwards, Neymar and Mbappé said me that why they no. In any case, would be well that any player of the PSG won it, but Leo deserves it", said to 'Mediaset'.

This statement leaves clear that of one or another way, so much to the French as to the Brazilian had liked them that his trainer agreed of them to the hour to say his favourites for the Balloon of Gold. In fact, the Argentinian not even thought in them for the 'Top 3', since his 2ª and 3ª option were Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo. It can that if it had planted here to Mbappé and Neymar did not have him recriminado at all.

It was as it was, this only is an episode more in Paris Saint-Germain that it does not find the course. Pochettino Has not known until the moment give with the key so that his offensive trident shine and neither so that the community surrender to big level. Although the Parisians are leaders stood out of Tie it 1 and also go first in his group of Champions League, the feelings are not good and the team has to improve a lot still.

Pochettino Has work by in front

Leo Messi is not giving the level that expected of him and the rosarino has not joined up still to the French picture. Although his connection with Mbappé promises because of the vision of game of one and to the speed of the another, like couple still have not exploded. Besides, it is missing to see how they join up both with Neymar, that has gone back after a pair of parties 'KO'. Join up to the three to a diagram of game achieving that all shine and that the community keep on being solid does not go to be easy and 'Poche' will have to work a lot to achieve it.
