Mlagré the uncertainty which still hangs over the tenure of Kylian Mbappé, Mauricio Pochettino says he is "relaxed" before this semi-final return against Manchester City.
Can you give us any news
on Kylian Mbappé's health
And besides which tactical scheme are you going to use tomorrow night?
Kylian will be training individually tonight, and then we'll see if he can join the rest of the group.
We still have one day left, we'll see, we still haven't made a decision.
As for the scheme it will be very similar to the one since we used from the beginning, the goal is to give a lot of self-confidence to the players
When are you going to make the decision for Kylian Mbappé?
We will see tonight after his test.
And we'll make the decision tomorrow.

Does PSG have a psychological advantage over Manchester City because of their final disputed last season?
I'm not sure what that means "psychological benefit".
In football, you have to be better than your opponent.
Sometimes we give too much importance to the words we use to describe certain situations.
The only important thing tomorrow is to be better than City.
If we play better, we will pass.
Otherwise we will be eliminated
What state of mind are you in?
The same as two seasons ago when you were in the semi-final with Tottenham against Ajax Amsterdam?
You have to have fun, be calm, and try to be better.
This is the only way to get to the final.
That’s why I’m pretty relaxed.
There is a lot of talk about ball possession before this game.
Is this your intention during this meeting?
This is our intention.
It's going to be a challenge as Marco Verratti has already said.
Manchester City have been playing with the same philosophy for 5 or 6 years.
We also try to keep the ball, while being well balanced.
You have to be willing to suffer, and when you have scoring chances, you have to score.
Because you have to win with 2 goals if you want to reach the final
Is this return match difficult to manage emotionally?
Of course, it's difficult because if we pass we get to the final.
In this semi-final there are emotions because the result of the first leg will affect how we play tomorrow.
City are a smart team who can handle the situation well, so it's going to be a fight.
