Recently appointed Paris Saint-Germain coach, Mauricio Pochettino, has expressed joy after leading PSG to a victory in the Trophée des Champions final against Marseille on Wednesday.
The trophy which is Pochettino’s first as PSG manager came after Mauro Icardi and Neymar’s goals secured his side a 2-1 victory.

Speaking after the game, the former Tottenham Hotspur manager said, “I’m really proud, and I’m feeling really good,” Pochettino was quoted by PSG’s official website as saying after the match.
“I want to congratulate the players and say thank you to them and to Paris Saint-Germain, to Nasser the president and Leonardo the sporting director for trusting us and giving us the possibility to fight for big things and trophies.
“Yes I am so happy, and it was a very special night for us to have beaten our opponents and of course to win the trophy.”
