Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham return in doubt as PSG ‘very happy’ | Football | Sport


The Argentine has been linked with a return to Tottenham after reports that he had fallen out with the hierarchy at PSG over control and transfer targets.

Tottenham have targeted Pochettino, with chairman Daniel Levy having realised that he made a mistake in axing the Argentine 18 months ago.

But last night PSG sporting director Leonardo said: “Mauricio Pochettino has two years on his contract with PSG and we are very happy with him.”

Pochettino took over at the French giants in January, but oversaw a bitterly disappointing second half of the season.

The French giants were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Manchester City, then surrendered their Ligue 1 title to Lille.

Pochettino, 49, spent five years at Tottenham, where he led them to a Champions League final in 2019 having transformed the London club into regular top four contenders.

Mauricio Pochettino ‘interested’ in Tottenham but there are two issues

However, Spurs aren’t the only club interested in Pochettino’s services. 

Real Madrid are also reportedly monitoring Pochettino’s situation at PSG after Zinedine Zidane resigned.

Pochettino’s current deal has one year left on it, but the former Southampton and Espanol manager has reportedly become unsettled.
