Mauricio Pochettino Close to Joining Paris Saint Germain
Foremr Tottenham manger Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly close to taking joining Franch champions Paris Saint-Germain following the sack of Thomas Tuchel earlier today.
Tuchel was sacked by PSG on Thursday morning despite leading the club to a 4-0 win against Strassbourg a day earlier. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Mauricio Pochettino is strongly linked with the club.
The former Tottenham manager who was initially linked to Manchester United could be signing for the Franch champions. Romano claims that Paris Saint Germain’s sporting director Leonardo has been in contact with Pochettino’s camp since the start of this week.
Also in the list is former Parisiens midfielder Thiago Motta, the former Paris Saint Germain player is also in line to take the job just incase the former Tottenham and Espanyol manager’s deal fails with the club.
The PSG job will represent his return to management after nearly a year away from the game, with the Argentine having been sacked by Tottenham on November 19 last year.
