BREAKING NEWS: Pochettino Named New Manager Of PSG

Mauricio Pochettino has been appointed as the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain.

The former Tottenham, Southampton and Espanyol manager takes over at PSG following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel was dismissed on Christmas Eve despite a 4-0 win over Strasbourg the night before, with his departure formally confirmed on Tuesday.

Pochettino spent two-and-a-half seasons at PSG as a player, making 95 appearances between 2000 and 2003, and winning the 2001 Intertoto Cup.

He had been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham in November 2019. The hugely popular Pochettino had turned Spurs into title contenders and reached the 2019 Champions League final, but was dismissed with his side 14th in the Premier League table.

Now, he will doubtless be tasked with winning PSG their first Champions League title – though there is also work to do in Ligue 1.
