Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he was disappointed he started his career in Paris with a 1-1 draw against Saint-Etienne on Wednesday, saying his side owed the victory.

PSG found themselves at a disadvantage early in the match, but Moise Kean saved him from losing by tying the score three minutes later.

There were no more goals, which means PSG remain in second place in the Ligue 1 table, three points behind leader Lyon.

Pochettino was appointed PSG’s new coach on Saturday, signing a contract until the summer of 2022. The former Tottenham boss replaced Thomas Tuchel in the hot seat of Paris.

The Argentine was disappointed that he did not start his career as PSG coach with a victory, saying that his players are obliged to win.

“Obviously I’m a little disappointed, because we are PSG, so we definitely have to win,” Poichettino told Telefoot.

“But after only three days, they did not have enough time to prepare. We have a lot to improve on. It is not the result we wanted but it is clear that Saint-Etienne deserved the equalizer.”
