Paris-Saint Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino has openly admitted that despite the pain of losing to Real Madrid earlier in a crucial game, he is backing the Spanish champions to lift the trophy in the final against Liverpool today.
“It is clear that my heart is much whiter than red. 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.”
It should be recalled that Real Madrid staged a stunning comeback against Pochettino’s team in the round of 16, before proceeding to beat both Chelsea and Manchester City to reach Saturday night’s final against Liverpool.
