The future of Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has been a topic of discussion this week due to the Argentine tactician commenting on whether he’d be managing the capital club next season.
Pochettino stated that he expects to be on the bench 100-percent next season but has since walked back those remarks, saying that the media took him out of context. Nonetheless, ESPN reports that the 50-year-old has not been told that he’ll be sacked at the end of the season.
However, sources told ESPN‘s Julien Laurens that the expectation is Pochettino will leave this summer. Furthermore, those close to the situation stated to Laurens that the Argentine’s days in Paris are numbered, and conversations over his departure have taken place recently.
When it comes to a replacement, former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is the club’s No. 1 choice to replace Pochettino. Nonetheless, he’s keen on the France national team job, so they might have to look at other options.
This week, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte also surfaced as a possible candidate, but he has debunked these rumors.
