After a lengthy wait, Paris Saint-Germain has finally announced that Mauricio Pochettino is its new manager. The former Tottenham manager came to terms with the club on a contract that will run up until a year following this season, but the agreement does include an option for another year as well.
PSG’s official Twitter account posted a short video of Pochettino’s first words as the manager of the club.
“I’m very happy to be back in Paris, happy new year and here it’s Paris,” Pochettino said.

Pochettino’s words were few, but one could sense the excitement as he takes over a club that he once played for.
PSG will have its first match under Pochettino later this week when it meets AS Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 play.
