  • Pochettino has however warned his players to step up their game if they must go far in the European championship

Mauricio Pochettino seems unhappy with Paris Saint Germain's 1-1 draw in their Champions League opening Group A encounter against Club Brugge earlier this week.

The Parisians got the game started on a high with Ander Herrera finding the back of the net just after 15 minutes into the meeting.

But Hans Vanaken's 27th-minute equaliser denied the French League giants maximum points at the end of the encounter.

What Pochettino said

Meanwhile, after the game, Pochettino sent an important message to his attackers according to The Mirror, saying:

"We know we have to improve. That's not the problem for me. I'm happy with the defensive effort of the attackers. We have to be stronger in other areas of the game.
"[We] Need to compete, to know each other, to understand each other, to play together to succeed all three but that was not the problem tonight.
"We weren't strong enough in a Champions League match. We are not happy with the result and the performance, we know we have to do better.
"We have a magnificent group of players, we now have to find a defensive and offensive organisation. We need time."

PSG are second on the table with two points behind current table-toppers Manchester City who recorded a 6-3 win against RB Leipzig.
