Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino revealed new details about his future as coach of the French club next season.
Argentine Pochettino said in press statements after his team’s 4-0 victory over its host Montpellier, Saturday 14 May, in the 37th week of the French League: “I have to meet with Nasser Al-Khelaifi, President of Paris Saint-Germain in Qatar, before talking about anything related to My future with the team.
He continued, “We will certainly meet together, my future with Paris Saint-Germain will be discussed in Qatar, there will determine many features of the next season.” This is in reference to an expected meeting between the two men on the sidelines of the Paris Saint-Germain team’s presence in Qatar on a promotional tour of sports facilities in Qatar, especially the 2022 World Cup stadiums.
Pochettino’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in 2023; But expectations indicate that the Argentine coach will soon be sacked, after the team was eliminated by Real Madrid in the round of 16 of the Champions League.
French legend Zinedine Zidane tops the list of candidates to succeed Pochettino next season, but “Zizou” prefers to work as the coach of the French national team, succeeding his compatriot Didier Deschamps, after the end of the Qatar World Cup 2022, according to what was previously revealed by French media.
It is worth noting that Paris Saint-Germain won the French League title this season, but this achievement did not live up to the aspirations of the fans, who attacked Pochettino and the players sharply, in addition to booing a number of stars, led by Argentine Lionel Messi and Brazilian Neymar. The Paris fans were hoping for the Champions League title, which was absent from the team’s coffers.
