Thierry Henry has claimed, when Mauricio Pochettino was at Tottenham Hotspur ‘you knew’ what he and his team were going to do, but it isn’t the same with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Parisians got knocked out from the Champions League round of 16 last night (March 9) by Real Madrid.

However, speaking to CBS Sports, the former France International claimed:

“That’s a given with Pep (Guardiola).

 

“If you don’t do what is required, then you are not going to play. If you don’t do what you have to do in Europe, especially away from home.

 

“You have to do extra. And this is what’s not happening with Paris.

 

“We mentioned before, Emery couldn’t do it. He left, then won the Europa League with Chelsea.

 

“Even Pochettino, when he was in the Premier League, you knew what Tottenham were going to do. You knew what they were about. Even when he was at Southampton.

 

“Tough team to play against. They were going to get you on the break and put pressure. It was difficult.

 

“I didn’t see that yet with Paris Saint-Germain. We can also go with other managers that were there. Are the players too powerful?.” said Henry.
