Official: PSG Sack Pochettino

Paris Saint-Germain have officially parted ways with manager Mauricio Pochettino.

'CR7 Worried Messi Could Overtake His UCL Record'

After only a year and a half in charge of PSG, the French giants have decided to relieve the Argentine of his duties.

In a statement on their website, the club said: "The Argentine coach and his team joined the club in January 2021. A former captain of the Rouge & Bleus, Pochettino took charge of 84 competitive games. Under his tenure, Paris Saint-Germain won the 2020 Trophée des Champions and the 2020/21 Coupe de France, as well as the club’s historic 10th Ligue 1 title last April.

"The club would like to thank Mauricio Pochettino and his staff for their work and wish them the best for the future."

Despite recapturing the Ligue 1 title last season, it seems the UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid was enough for the club's chiefs to lose faith in the 50-year-old.
