Paris St-Germain head Coach Mauricio Pochettino is to leave the club following talks with the club at the end of last week. PSG is still to make a formal announcement but it is understood the former Tottenham and Espanyol manager will not serve the final year of his contract.
Paris St-Germain Set to Fire Mauricio Pochettino
Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, Jose Mourinho, and Nice coach Christophe Galtier are the managers linked with replacing Pochettino.
PSG regained the French title last term but the Argentine failed to lead them beyond the Champions League’s last 16. Pochettino claimed the first trophies of his managerial career with PSG – the 2021 Coupe de France and 2022 Ligue 1 title – but the club’s hierarchy was not pleased with the Argentine performance, they believe he should have achieved more given the squad at his disposal.
The ex-Spurs manager was considered a potential replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United before they appointed interim boss Ralf Rangnick and then Solskjaer’s permanent successor Erik ten Hag.
