PSG Sacks Pochettino Months After Lifting Ligue 1 Title

 
 
Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked as Manager of Paris Saint-Germain after the Argentine and the club reached an agreement on his exit, according to multiple reports.

After arriving as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement in 2021, Pochettino, 50, led PSG to the Champions League semi-final – becoming only the second boss to guide the club to that stage of the competition during the Qatari ownership era.

Pochettino has been in charge for 18 months and led the club to the Ligue 1 title in his first full season, finishing 15 points clear of second placed Marseille – the biggest margin of victory in any of Europe’s big five divisions.

 
His team were undefeated at home in the Champions League and Ligue 1 last season.

But the club’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid at the last-16 was a factor in the mutual decision for Pochettino to leave Paris.

Nice Head Coach Christophe Galtier is thought to be the front-runner to replace Pochettino.

Meanwhile, former Real Madrid Manager Zinedine Zidane had been believed to be the preferred choice of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar who owns PSG.
