PSG: agreement with Pochettino, behind the scenes of a separation…

According to the British press, Mauricio Pochettino has reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to leave his coaching duties. One year from the end of his contract, the Argentinian did not insist on keeping his job.

Pochettino will leave Paris Saint-Germain

Mauricio Pochettino heads for the exit. As mentioned on Saturday, the Paris Saint-Germain coach was informed by his management that the capital club did not intend to continue the adventure with him this summer. The Athletic confirms the information this Sunday and announces that the two parties have reached an agreement for a separation.

According to the British media, the Argentinian met his leaders last week to take stock of the 2021-2022 season, during which PSG won the tenth French championship title in its history but did not not perform in the Champions League. While its ultimate ambition remains the coronation in C1, the Parisian team came out in the round of 16 against Real Madrid (1-0, 1-3), the future winner of this edition.

Pochettino did not insist

At the end of this assessment, the Parisian staff and the technician took the mutual decision to end their collaboration, despite a contract running until June 2023. If Pochettino has not stopped saying in front of the media that he saw himself continuing his Parisian adventure next season, they considered that a separation from now on was a reasonable solution. The former Tottenham coach therefore did not insist on keeping his post this summer.

Which doesn’t mean he’ll leave empty-handed. The two parties must now agree on the severance pay for Poche, estimated at between 10 and 15 million euros. Once the departure of the native of Murphy is finalized, PSG will be able to recruit their new coach. If the Zinedine Zidane track ignited the football planet on Friday, before being cooled by the ZZ clan, it is Christophe Galtier (Nice) who seems to be holding the rope.
