Foot PSG – PSG: The 4 tracks for the future of Pochettino

In the hot seat at Paris Saint-Germain, Mauricio Pochettino could find himself in a tricky position next summer. Manchester United’s long-desired Argentina manager may have to wait before returning to action.

According to the English press, it’s almost done, Mauricio Pochettino will not be the manager of Manchester United next season. The Paris Saint-Germain manager has long been in the English club’s sights. But in recent days, multiple sources from across the channel have claimed that the Red Devils have their sights set on Erik ten Hag. In fact, there is talk of an oral agreement between the Premier League resident and the current coach of Ajax Amsterdam, and various media have even announced the formalization for next week. So what options do Mauricio Pochettino still have if the door at Old Trafford closes on the Argentine manager?

The Daily Mirror takes stock of Mauricio Pochettino’s future and lists four more or less credible possibilities. First, our colleagues imagine that the technician continues the adventure at Paris Saint-Germain. The ex-Tottenham manager is clearly under threat after his failure in the Champions League round of 16 who failed to forge a playing identity with the stars placed at his disposal. But the Paris manager has one year left on his contract and has announced he wants to continue. Moreover, British media believe that his potential successors (Zinedine Zidane? Antonio Conte?) are not numerous and that if a truly worthy coach isn’t found, Doha could end up retaining their confidence.

Pochettino fired, 4 solutions for him

But in the event of a sacking, his name could reappear on the Real Madrid side, where president Florentino Pérez has always held him in high esteem. It remains to be seen where Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti will be at the end of the season. At this point it will probably be too late to take over a selection ahead of the 2022 World Cup but the Daily Mirror would see him becoming manager and recalls that former Premier League managers have had that experience, notably Roberto Martinez , who leads Belgium. Finally, our colleagues believe that Mauricio Pochettino could just wait until a good position becomes available next season and like others before him, he will take a sabbatical at Paris Saint-Germain. That’s probably not planned, but the Argentine won’t necessarily be spoiled for choice.
