Paris Saint-Germain won a 10th historic Ligue 1 title on Saturday despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Lens.
The feat eased some pressure on manager Mauricio Pochettino who insisted that they had to give value to the title despite his fans leaving the stadium before the final whistle.

“I think it’s really important to add another title for the club. Yes it’s never easy when you have a huge disappointment in the Champions League but the team and the players were really professional and fought to win the championship.
“We have succeeded and we are so happy and we have to give value to this title,” the Argentine said after the game.
Pochettino’s future at the club remains unclear after being linked with a summer move to Manchester United but after the Red Devils appointed Erik ten Hag, it remains to be seen where he will be in the coming season.

PSG fans have not been happy with the manager since their elimination from the Champions League by Real Madrid despite having a two-goal lead in the game. The fans have previously jeered their own players including Lionel Messi and Neymar to express their disappointments.
