Several reports in France has disclosed that Mauricio Pochettino is on the verge of leaving his post as the manager of Paris Saint Germain when the current seasons ends.
PSG played a whole draw against RC Lens on Saturday to win the first career league title for the Argentine coach, he’s now set to vacate his managerial post according to the Le Parisien.
The league title is first of his career, but he had previously won the Coupe de France and the Trophee de Champions with the French capital last season and finishing second to Lille in the league.
The 50-year-old’s side was eliminated by Real Madrid in the Champions League and since then came under heavy criticism for failing to replicate last season form in the Uefa Champions League when they reached the semi-finals, but fell to a defeat to eventual runner-up Manchester City.
While speaking to the media at Parc des Princes over the weekend, the former Tottenham boss said:
“I’m happy about this title even though the tonight’s event is strange and the situations surrounding it, but a title is title and I think we deserve it. It’s the 10th title in the club’s history and now we must now work towards the future and learn from the past.”
Pochettino was heavily linked to taking over the helms of affairs at Old Trafford before Manchester United announced that Ajax current coach, Erik Ten Hag will take over at the end of the season.
However, when Pochettino was asked about the news at Strentford End, he said the media tend to generate rumours on daily basis and during his time at his previous clubs, he said he has been focused and committed and that’s what he’s doing right now at PSG.
The search for a new manager to take over at PSG is now ongoing as the club hierarchy is preparing for a 15m euros settlement for the Argentine manager.
