Pochettino tips Real Madrid for UCL Glory
PSG Manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he will be backing Real Madrid in the Champions League final, despite the LaLiga Giants eliminating his outfit from the competition.
Real Madrid staged a stunning comeback to beat PSG in the last 16, before beating Chelsea and Manchester City to reach Saturday night’s final against Liverpool.
“It is clear that my heart is much whiter than red,” said Pochettino. “My soft spot for Madrid comes from 1994, when I arrived in Barcelona. I was lucky that my coach was Jose Antonio Camacho, who transmitted that love for Real Madrid to me.
“I have never been able, as a player and coach, to be at Madrid, but my emotional preference is clear.”
