Dissatisfied with the results and the style of play offered by the Argentinian, the management of Paris Saint-Germain tried to part ways with Mauricio Pochettino this winter. He should finally finish the season before leaving.
Leader of Ligue 1 with eleven points ahead of OGC Nice, Paris Saint-Germain should, barring a huge rebound, recover their French Champion trophy, stolen by LOSC last season. However, despite this, the Parisian club also dropped the Champions Trophy to Lille at the start of the season (0-1), finished second in its Champions League group behind Manchester City and was mostly eliminated in the round of 16. final of the Coupe de France, in front of his audience this Monday evening (0-0, 5-6 on tab).
Aware of this record clearly below expectations, like the style of play proposed by the Argentinian, little appreciated by the supporters of the capital, the management of Paris Saint-Germain tried in vain to land the Argentinian technician this winter, mid-season, as revealed The Parisian, this Tuesday. During the month of January, several coaches were even asked to replace Pochettino.
Mauricio Pochettino will leave next summer
Zinedine Zidane would have been approached, as we revealed to you at the end of 2021, but the ex-Real Madrid coach would not have been there to find himself, from February 15, facing his former club, next opponent of PSG in the round of 16 of the Champions League, as mentioned TF1. In addition, the Ile-de-France daily adds that the current workforce would not suit Zidane either…
But finally, Paris will end the 2021-22 financial year with Mauricio Pochettino, who should leave next summer. For the moment, the Ile-de-France club will therefore have to concentrate on its main objective: to eliminate Real Madrid and progress in the Champions League. A difficult task due to the latest results, where PSG have won only three of their last five matches in all competitions.
