Mauricio Pochettino jeered by Paris Saint-Germain fans, as Kylian Mbappe gets 100th career assist and reveals ‘new elements’ amid Real Madrid transfer rumours

Mauricio Pochettino was jeered by Paris Saint-Germain fans, as Real Madrid-linked Kylian Mbappe clocked up his 100th career assist, before stating he hasn’t decided his future.

Pochettino, 50, was targeted by PSG supporters before their 5-1 triumph over Lorient.

His side are now 12 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table but after an early exit in the Champions League, where his side surrendered a 2-0 goal aggregate lead over Real Madrid, plus an early Coupe de France exit, supporters aren’t happy.

The Argentinian, meanwhile, continues to be linked with taking the reins at Old Trafford, replacing interim-manager Ralf Rangnick this summer.

And ahead of the match in the French capital, the ex-Tottenham boss suffered boos and whistles.

PSG were rampant, though, in the game securing a 5-1 victory, with the formidable frontline of Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi all on the scoresheet.

The Brazilian opened the scoring on the night, before his French teammate Mbappe made it 2-0.

Terem Moffi pulled a goal back for the visitors, but Mbappe and Neymar both netted again, before Messi capped off the stunning performance to help his side to an easy victory.

Meanwhile, Mbappe, who also registered three assists, inclduing the 100th of his career, in the latest win, has claimed he is yet to make a decision on his future.

The 23-year-old continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season when his contract runs out, despite offers from his current side.

After the match at the Parc des Princes, he was quizzed about whether he would be staying at PSG or moving on.

“I haven’t made the decision, but there are new elements,” he told reporters.

“What are they? New elements [laughs]. I’m calm, trying to make the best decision with my loved ones.”

PSG have made it clear they want him to stay but the World Cup winner is still to be convinced to remain.

But any new development could sway him into remain in his nation’s capital.
