Pochettino Likely Informed Of Imminent Sack


June 12, (THEWILL) – According to reports monitored by THEWILL, Mauricio Pochettino has very likely been informed that he would be stripped of his duties as head coach at Paris Saint-Germain.

After a poor season in Paris, the Argentine manager has long accepted his fate, and PSG’s recruitment of Luis Campos as a sporting director has hastened their decision to cut ways with Pochettino.

Pochettino was apparently set to be fired by PSG this summer. On the pitch, he was underwhelming, and it was becoming evident that he was not the right man to get their front three of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi up to speed.

Pochettino took over in the Parc des Princes dugout from Thomas Tuchel in January 2021, as PSG struggled to defend their Ligue 1 title. Les Parisiens would lose to Lille in the domestic league, but they would go to the Champions League semi-finals. PSG’s last season was overshadowed by Messi’s stuttering arrival, PSG’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, and Mbappe’s future, who chose to sign a new deal in May.

PSG’s focus will shift to finding a new manager and the club’s leadership has long seen Zinedine Zidane as an ideal prospect, though his advisor recently shot down suggestions that the former midfielder is close to a contract to take over. Nice manager Christophe Galtier, who worked under Campos at Nice, and Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim are both regarded.
