 According to some reports from France, the PSG dressing room is having a strong split after consecutive defeats.

Pochettino shared after losing to Real Madrid

In the last 16 of the Champions League, PSG used to hold a huge advantage when Kylian Mbappe helped them create a two-goal gap. However, Karim Benzema’s “magic” hat-trick turned the situation around and Real Madrid was the next team.

PSG’s dressing room is divided into two “factions”.

 

After the match, there were reports of a confrontation between Neymar and Gianluigi Donnarumma in the dressing room. According to RMC Sport (via Get French Football News), the PSG dressing room is currently divided into two “factions” , with one side speaking Spanish and the other being French speakers.

The report also claims no player spoke on the way home from the 3-0 defeat to Monaco over the weekend. It was the third defeat in five matches in the domestic league for Mauricio Pochettino’s army.

“The international break (the national teams are in focus) will allow for a change of mentality and put us back where we are,” said the former Tottenham manager. “We have to get back to responsibility, for putting on this shirt.”

PSG are still strong contenders for the Ligue 1 title after missing out on the title last season. They are 12 points ahead of the second ranked team, Marseille, while the tournament has only 9 rounds left. Currently, Pochettino’s chair at PSG is also unstable. It is likely that the PSG board will look for another talented coach next summer to replace Pochettino.
