Mauro Icardi, Leandro Paredes, Angel Di Maria, Mauricio Pochettino win French Cup with PSG


Paris Saint Germain, coached by Mauricio Pochettino, defeated Monaco 2-0 and reached its 6th French Cup in 7 years. Mauro Icardi opened the scoring as Leandro Paredes and Angel Di María were starters.

Angel Di Maria won his 19th title with PSG while Leandro Paredes reached trophy number 7, Mauro Icardi his 5th, and Mauricio Pochettino his second. These four Argentines are partof the most winning team in France of the last decade.

Next Sunday, they will have the tough but possible task of winning the Ligue 1. With just one game remaining, the Parisians are in second place, one point below the leaders Lille.

Of the three Argentine players, two of them have been included in the Argentina squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers. Mauro Icardi is the odd man out.


    • Pjanic would be direct competition to Paredes. Both deep lying playmakers that need defensive soldiers next to them. Maybe back up to Paredes?? Verratti used to be but he’s more advanced now

    • Even Viratti could not make Paredes bench warmer so no chance for Pjanic.Paredes needs competition that is how his best always comes out. Paredes will the best defensive midfielder for any given team.

  1. Hopefully this shuts people up with the notion that Poch is incapable of winning trophies. Hopefully by now they’ve realized that TOTTENHAM can’t win trophies and he was glued to that team for years

    • He is talented and has ability but is VERY dumb, or at least makes dumb decisions. He many times will dribble the ball without reason instead of passing it and falls EVERY time. Yesterday I asked myself “when was the last time he didn’t fall?” yes, you don’t count how many times he falls but how many he doesn’t falls. Then after dribbling he makes a mistake with passing. When he succeeds and passes it well he looks like a genius but that is rare. Mind you he is Colombian, not Argentinian, just because you are asking
