Mauricio Pochettino to Leave Paris St-Germain After Talks with Club
After talks with the club at the end of last week, coach Mauricio Pochettino is leaving Paris St. Germain.
PSG hasn’t said anything officially yet, but it’s clear that the 50-year-old former Tottenham manager won’t finish the last year of his contract.
There have been rumours that Zinedine Zidane, Jose Mourinho, and Nice coach Christophe Galtier could replace Pochettino.
Even though Real Madrid won the tournament, PSG had a 2-0 lead in the overall score with less than 30 minutes left in the second leg.

Pochettino won his first two trophies as a manager with PSG: the Coupe de France in 2021 and the Ligue 1 title in 2022. However, the club’s leaders thought that was the least he could do with the team he had.
The former Spurs manager was thought to be a possible replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United before they hired Ralf Rangnick as an interim manager and then Erik ten Hag as Solskjaer’s permanent replacement.
Last season, PSG won the French title again, but the Argentine couldn’t get them past the last 16 in the Champions League.
