Defending European champions Chelsea are the ‘team to beat’ in the Champions League, according to MAURICIO POCHETTINO. And the former Tottenham manager failed to mention Manchester City, last year’s finalists, as well as Manchester United, who now have Cristiano Ronaldo.

The PSG manager also believes his team is one of the teams to beat on paper. Despite signing mega stars such as Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos this summer, he insists that PSG must ‘turn into a team’ before they can lift the Champions League trophy. “On paper, looking at our squads, it’s possible that Chelsea and ourselves are the two teams to beat, but Chelsea are the holders, so they’re the team to beat, especially after strengthening their squad,” Pochettino said. “We’re not a team yet..”
This summer, we have recruited a large number of players. “There are some big names, but we need to come together as a team.”
We understand that our performance will be judged at the end of the season. “The pressure is there for all the clubs, and we know that the Champions League has been PSG’s main goal for а number of yeаrs. ”
