Without a doubt, the great incentive of Pochettino's wheel after the match against Lyon (victory 2-1 with a goal from Icardi), was to know what was the coach going to say after having replaced Leo Messi in the final stretch of the match. The Argentine spoke to the media minutes after starring in one of the images, without a doubt, of the season.
“I make decisions during the game thinking about the best for the team and the players. Sometimes they like them and sometimes they don't.” “The reaction of Messi? I asked him how he was and he said fine”, The Argentine coach stressed when asked about Messi's strange substitution in the final stretch.
In addition, he added: “It is very positive for us to win the first six games of Ligue 1. After the difficult game against Bruges, it is important for us. Lyon is a great team, they play football very well. You had to show character in the game. We are at a stage where we are trying things. We must work on it in training sessions, but it is complicated, since we play every three days and the priority is for the players to recover. It is not an excuse, we must improve. “
