Furious PSG ace Mitchel Bakker ‘storms out of training and kicks advertising board’ after being dropped by Pochettino

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN defender Mitchel Bakker has reportedly stormed out of training after being dropped by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The 20-year-old played no part in the French champions’ 4-0 win at Dijon on Saturday and has now reacted by leaving the team’s training ground in a fit of rage, according to L’Equipe.

He is also thought to have kicked an advertising board in anger on his way out.

Those at the scene were reported as saying: “”Mitch, come back, come back.”

Bakker was given plenty of game time under former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

But since Mauricio Pochettino has come into the club he has preferred to use Layvin Kurzawa as his first choice left-back.

And Bakker now seems to have reached breaking point after Poch brought Abdou Diallo in to give Kurzawa a rest at the weekend.

The Dutch defender has featured 28 times for PSG so far this season, the majority of which came under Tuchel.

Meanwhile, Poch’s side bounced back from their 2-0 home defeat to Monaco with a convincing victory at Dijon.

A Kylian Mbappe brace was accompanied by goals from Moise Kean and Danilo Pereira as the defending Ligue 1 champions moved to within two points of table toppers Lille.

Pochettino has won ten of his 13 games since taking over at PSG, with his most significant victory undoubtedly coming in their humbling of Barcelona in the Champions League.

Next up for them is a league game at Bordeaux, followed by a cup match away to Brest and then the second leg of their European tie with Barcelona.
