PSG and Mauricio Pochettino finally ‘agree’ for the coach to leave his post

Paris Saint-Germain and Mauricio Pochettino have finally reached an agreement for the manager to leave the club this summer.

Pochettino won the first league title of his managerial career last month after dominating Ligue 1 with PSG. The Argentine also managed to clinch the Coupe de France in the previous campaign after missing out on the league.

Still, the overwhelming consensus among the PSG hierarchy and the French media is that the 50-year-old’s time with the French club has been largely a disappointment. They failed to retain the domestic cup this season and were embarrassingly knocked out of the Champions League after losing a 2-0 aggregate lead to Real Madrid.

And with the Champions League having been PSG’s main focus in recent seasons, The Athletic report that Pochettino’s stay in Paris is over. The report claims that a mutual agreement was reached at last week’s meeting that the departure of the former Tottenham boss would benefit both parties.

It is understood that the final details will still have to be finalized, although PSG have already started looking for a successor. Among those are Zinedine Zidane and Christophe Galtier, who knocked Pochettino out of the Coupe de France in the round of 16 and won Ligue 1 with Lille in 2021.

Which team do you think Pochettino will manage next? Let us know in the comments section.



The Argentinian failed to win PSG’s highly sought-after first Champions League trophy

It’s unclear where Pochettino will offer his services next after strong links with Real Madrid and Manchester United in recent years. United looked like a likely destination for the Argentine ahead of this summer until he opted to sign Erik ten Hag.

The Dutchman has impressed Old Trafford bosses with his attention to detail and his ambitions for the future after winning the title with Ajax. Pochettino was also linked with a return to Spurs when head coach Antonio Conte began to criticize the club earlier this year, but the Italian is expected to stay in north London after winning Champions League football.
