Pochettino celebrates second title win as PSG defeats AS Monaco in Coupe de France final

May 19, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The former Spurs manager grabbed his second trophy thanks to Wednesday's 2-0 win over his side's rivals.

In his 33rd game in charge as head coach of Paris Saint-Germain, Mauricio Pochettino has secured his second managerial trophy after failing to win a single one in 293 games with Tottenham Hotspur. The 49-year-old Argentine manager guided Les Parisiens to a comfortable 2-0 win over AS Monaco, winning the club its sixth Coupe de France in seven years.

It was practically another Kylian Mbappe masterclass with his teammate and striking partner Neymar Jr suspended and watching on from the stands. The 21-year-old attacker Frenchman proceeded to have a hand in all the goals scored in Wednesday night's win and his first act thatput his former club at a disadvantage was to set up Mauro Icardi for the game's opener following a defensive error by Axel Disasi in the 19th minute.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner will go on to get himself on the score sheet with assistance from Angel Di Maria in the 81st minute, ensuring a record extending 14th French Cup win for Paris Saint-Germain. On personal level, the attacker celebrated winning his 12th career trophy, having only made his professional debut December 2015 at AS Monaco.

For Mauricio Pochettino, the feat lifted a bit of weight off his shoulder with his side on the verge of missing out on retaining the Ligue 1 title. Having won the Trophee des Champions in January, the Argentine coach and his charges go into the final round of league games on Sunday sitting just a point behind Lille on the table. They will hope that Les Dogues fall short against Angers while they also attempt to defeat Brest at Parc des Princes.
