In a move that was much-anticipated for quite a while, Paris Saint-Germain elected to sack manager Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday. The Argentine manager had one more season remaining on his contract, but the club decided to replace him with former OGC Nice coach Christophe Galtier.
Pochettino is now a free agent manager for the second time in three years. According to Sky Sports News‘ Paul Gilmour, the former Tottenham manager is now eyeing a move back to the Premier League.
The Argentine manager has “made no secret” of the fact that he aspires to once again coach in England’s top flight.
At the moment, there are no current managerial vacancies in the Premier League. There was only one such opening over the past few months, but it was eventually filled when Manchester United hired Erik ten Hag as its new manager.
It remains to be seen whether Pochettino will decide to simply wait until there are some managerial openings in the Premier League over the coming year.
Pochettino left PSG with a 65.48 percent win percentage in all competitions, coupled with a pair of trophy wins.
