Mauricio Pochettino talks to PSG hierarchy after contact with Tottenham – fr


Mauricio Pochettino has had decisive talks with Paris Saint-Germain bosses after a wave of interest in his services from Tottenham and Real Madrid, according to reports.
It emerged earlier this week that Spurs are keen to rehire Pochettino 18 months after the manager’s sacking that led them to the 2019 Champions League final.

The Argentine still has a year left on his contract with PSG, but Real Madrid are also considering a coup after Zinedine Zidane left his post on Thursday.

Pochettino was only named to the Parc des Princes hot seat in January and it would be a major surprise to see him go.



Pochettino spoke with PSG chiefs to plan for next season

Indeed, the 49-year-old is preparing for the next Ligue 1 season and has spoken with the PSG hierarchy in order to regain the title in Lille.

It depends BBC Sport , who notes that the French giants have no plans to let Pochettino take on a new challenge this summer.

The report adds that PSG are surprised by the recent fury over something they are not considering.

The news will be a blow to Tottenham, who have been looking for a new manager since Jose Mourinho’s sacking in April.

President Daniel Levy – who appointed academy coach Ryan Mason as interim manager – has already been turned down by a multitude of coaches.

Massimiliano Allegri was among those who snubbed the Spurs post and returned to Juventus on Friday, replacing Andrea Pirlo.

Spurs may have more glee if they look to Antonio Conte, who left Inter Milan earlier this week due to a dispute with the board despite leading the club under Serie A.

The Italian has had a successful two-year stint with Chelsea between 2016 and 2018 and could be ready to return to the Premier League.

But Spurs fans would probably prefer Pochettino to undertake a second stint as there is a feeling he has unfinished business with the club.

It is understood that his relationship with Levy has improved since his sacking in November 2019, although he also has a strong connection to the PSG bosses.

Pochettino led the club to Coupe de France glory last week and his bosses don’t blame him for not winning the championship, while they are also happy with the improvements they have seen in the squad.

The manager shares that optimism and appeared fully focused on the task at hand as he addressed reporters earlier this week.

Should Pochettino stay at PSG or return to Tottenham? Comments below.

“I’m happy with the way the players have adapted to the changes,” said Pochettino. “There are a lot of things that could not be changed or that could not be developed for lack of time.

“But I still think that with this way of working, and with the desire to be able to develop other types of ideas on the ground, we will do great things in the future.

“I am of course proud of the team’s efforts, because only we know what condition the team was in and what we were capable of.

“I’m happy with everything we’ve done to stay alive until the last days in all competitions.

“Winning the Champions Trophy, winning the Coupe de France, reaching the semi-final of the Champions League, without being in top form, and fighting until the last match with the possibility of winning the championship.

“I think that given the conditions in which we arrived in January, we must be proud of everything, and of all the people who took part in this camp. “
