It was a big decision for me to move to a club, which even at that early stage of season 16 were likely to be going down. Particularly as I am a manager that likes to develop a sqaud and Division 1 is not a good place to start.
So as the weakest of the four teams that were relegated, season 17 is going to be a tough with many better teams that us, so my main aim/ hope is to avoid a secondary drop.
After taking over I bought in 2 players who I thought would help us in the future -Weston Mckennie and Donny Van De Beek. During the close season I decided to move them on and try and fine 1) strong defender 2) someone who could score goals – which last season was a big problem. I am hoping the experience of Filip KOSTIĆ will help with the goals and Gabriel MAGALHÃES will be my main man at the back. We will also rely heavily on De Gea in goal, but knowing SM he get 5s in most matches.
Elsewhere I have tried to bring in a number of younger players who will provide a longer term future for the club. As I have said my aim is to ensure a strong foundation for PSG, not just while I am manager but for whoever follows me. As they say only time will tell.
