has been hurt again and will be sidelined for a few weeks,” Di Maria added. “That’s the saddest part since he had put so much work into his knee recovery, hoping to be at a decent level when he returned… Let’s hope he improves quickly so he can demonstrate how wonderful he truly is.”
Last season, Paris Saint-Germain finished one point behind Ligue 1 champions Lille and was eliminated in the Champions League semifinals by Manchester City.
Bayern Munich defeated them in the 2020 Champions League final a year ago, the closest they’ve ever been to winning the title.
“We’ve always had the responsibility to win the Champions League, and now that Messi has arrived, we have to accomplish it no matter what,” Di Maria stated. “It isn’t simple, but we have a coaching staff that can put together a fantastic squad, and everyone understands their responsibilities.
Pochettino has the ability to assemble a fantastic squad.
With so many stars, there’s a lot of pressure to do well, but everyone has a role to play, and that’s what matters.
I’d like to play on the right or in the center, as I did at Real Madrid, but the coach has the last say.”
