Paris Saint-Germain won the French Ligue 1 title for the 10th time on Saturday despite a 1-1 draw with Lens.
The feat relieved some of the pressure on coach Mauricio Pochettino, who insisted the title should be given value despite his fans leaving the field before the final whistle.

“I think it is really important to add another title to the club. Yes, it is never easy when you have a big disappointment in the Champions League, but the team and the players were really professional and fought to win the championship.
“We succeeded and we are very happy and we have to give value to this title,” the Argentine said after the match.
Pochettino’s future at the club remains unclear after he was linked with a summer move to Manchester United but after the Red Devils appointed Eric ten Hag, it is not yet clear where he will be next season.

Paris Saint-Germain fans have not been happy with the coach since their elimination from the Champions League by Real Madrid, despite their two-goal lead in the match. And fans have previously mocked their players, including Lionel Messi and Neymar, to express their disappointment.
