PSG line up EPL coach as Pochettino's replacement

PSG considering Premier League coach as Pochettino's replacement

April 25, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
With the Ligue 1 title all sorted out in their favor, it is time for PSG's execs to make a decision about their coach's future.

Ligue 1 experts knew that Mauricio Pochettino's time at PSG's coach would end by the end of the season due to his failure to win the UEFA Champions League. Now, the French side have already lined up a list of replacements for the Argentine boss, although they might have to wait a bit to announce his successor if things go the way they had planned.

According to a report by Le Parisien, PSG had lined up Zinedine Zidane to replace Pochettino during the first month of the year, but since PSG did not fire the Argentine, Zidane has decided to snub all offers from the club while he waits for the French National Team's hot seat to be available, which will only happen after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Hence, the team has decided to search for other alternatives, and the French media outlet has revealed that former Chelsea boss and Tottenham tactician Antonio Conte is the man they want to take over once Pochettino is axed.

Conte is still under contract with Tottenham until the end of next season, but if both parties agree to part ways, PSG would only be forced to pay a minimum amount for his services. The main problem for PSG is that Conte's only condition to take the job is not as appealing to them as the option to hire him.

The French newspaper has suggested that Conte requested to work with a new sporting director, which means that PSG must fire Leonardo. The reasons for Conte's wishes were not revealed by Le Parisien, but the newspaper has stated that Conte will not enter into any negotiations with the club until Leonardo is nowhere to be seen.

Furthermore, Conte reportedly wishes to know which of the team's top players will be around for next season, which means that the Italian tactician will not make any announcements until Kylian Mbappé sheds light on his future. The Frenchman is expected to reveal his decision about leaving the club or signing a new deal after May 21, which may also give the club some time to agree terms with Conte in both of those scenarios.

Be that as it may, Mauricio Pochettino seems to have no future at PSG, but it will take a bit more time for his current employers to sign his replacement.
