Paris Saint-Germain confirms Mauricio Pochettino as new coach

Mauricio Pochettino has officially joined French giants Paris Saint-Germain as the new head coach, replacing sacked Thomas Tuchel.

After several weeks of rumours, Mauricio Pochettino is now officially the new manager of Paris Saint-Germain. The former Tottenham coach replaces Thomas Tuchel after the French club sacked him.

Pochettino signed a contract with Paris Saint-Germain that keeps him at the club until 2022. Since Tottenham let him go in 2019, he has been without a managerial job.

Now, Mauricio Pocettino is thrilled to be back in the dugout for Paris Saint-Germain.

“I am really happy and honoured to become the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain,” Pochettino said, confirming the news.

“I would like to thank the club’s management for the trust they have placed in me. As you know, this club has always held a special place in my heart.”

Before he began his coaching career, Mauricio Pochettino had played for Paris Saint-Germain between 2001 and 2003, he even captained his team. “I have wonderful memories, especially of the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes,” he continued. “I return to the club today with a lot of ambition and humility, and I’m eager to work with some of the world’s most talented players.”

Taking over the reins from Tuchel means that Pochettino has a lot of work to do. His predecessor had just taken the team to their first UEFA Champions League final where they narrowly lost of Bayern Munich.

In fact, Tuchel was doing well at his job and would have stayed on if he had not had a public disagreement with the club’s sporting director over transfer policies. The former PSG coach had been vocal about how the club loses valuable players.

We can’t wait to see PSG under the steering of Mauricio Pochettino.
