PSG reportedly sack Pochettino

Ligue 1 champions PSG reportedly sack head coach Pochettino

June 15, 2022 By Ali M.
The decision to relieve the Argentine of his duties was reportedly taken this morning after the club's disappointing 2021/22 campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino's future at PSG has been marred by speculation.

The Argentine tactician has long been linked with the sack, with rumors claiming the club are keen on replacing him despite their 2021/22 Ligue 1 title win.

And according to ESPN, that decision has finally been taken. French football expert Julien Laurens is now reporting that the Qatari-owned side have officially fired the former Tottenham boss.

An official announcement has not yet been made but this decision was taken this morning, with the French champions opting to relieve Pochettino of his duties with only one year left on his contract after a disappointing season.

This comes after Leonardo, the former sporting director in Paris, was also sacked, with Luis Campos being appointed as his replacement. The first major task for the highly-rated Portuguese executive will be to find a new head coach for the Parc des Princes.

A number of names have been linked with Les Parisiens. Zinedine Zidane is said to be target no.1 for the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who owns the club. However, despite recent claims that the 1998 World Cup winner agreed to take over, Zizou isn't seen as a realistic option as he is holding out for the France national team job.

The man leading the race to replace Pochettino is currently Christophe Galtier. The Nice boss, the man who led Lille to the 2020/21 Ligue 1 title, is Campos' preferred candidate and has held positive talks with the league champions.

Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui, Sporting CP's Ruben Amorim, and River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo have also been shortlisted for the role.

As for Pochettino, it remains unclear what his next destination will be after his departure is finalized. Real Madrid and Manchester United were keen on the Argentine at one point, but Los Blancos are unlikely to replace Ancelotti, the man who won them their 14th UEFA Champions League title, while the Red Devils have just appointed Erik ten Hag.
