    Pochettino will need time to refine PSG identity – Leonardo

    Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo believes Mauricio Pochettino can help refine the Ligue 1 club’s identity.

    Thomas Tuchel was sacked as PSG coach in December, with former Tottenham boss Pochettino confirmed as his replacement on January 2.

    Leonardo said it was crucial for Pochettino to ensure PSG had their own defining philosophy but acknowledged that would take time.

    “I think it’s important to assert a style on the pitch, because Paris must have its identity,” he told France Football.

    “It does not happen in a few weeks but over several years. And I think Pochettino can allow us to refine that in a constant way and in connection with the DNA of the club.”

    Tuchel led PSG to back-to-back Ligue 1 titles and they reached the Champions League final last year before falling to Bayern Munich.

    Leonardo said the decision to sack the German should have come as little surprise to the former Borussia Dortmund coach.

    “We knew, and he [Tuchel] knew, that it would be difficult to renew his contract at the end of the season,” he said.

    “But there, we decided to anticipate a little. We did not change coaches to show off. I don’t think it could be a surprise for Tuchel.

    “It was not the first time that we discussed the situation together. Maybe he didn’t understand me anymore.”

    PSG are top of the Ligue 1 table ahead of hosting Montpellier on Friday.
