Much criticized on social networks, Mauricio Pochettino annoys more and more PSG supporters. The management of the club may soon make a radical decision for the Argentine coach.
Pochettino’s head now claimed in Paris
In the image of his predecessor Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino may not spend the winter in the French capital. Despite a contract running until June 2023, the former Tottenham coach could finally be thanked by Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Leonardo. Former captain of the Red and White as a player, the 49-year-old coach is very attached to the Paris Saint-Germain, but his disappointing management for several months could cost him his job in the coming weeks or months. While Mauricio Pochettino had lined up the offensive quartet Di Maria-Mbappé-Neymar-Messi, the Ligue 1 leader, did not know how to put in difficulty the Marseille defense.
No individuality has been able to make a difference, and since the beginning of the season, the content of the matches of the Parisians is sad and rests on an individual feat of one of the four stars. Very remontés on social networks, fans do not even hide their wish to see the former Tottenham manager give his job to another coach. Indeed, the Parisian fans do not understand the game project set up by the coach.
“The collective nothingness of this PSG is an absolute disgrace and an insult to everything that has been put in place in recent years. The attitude of some players is obviously to point the finger. But above all it is time to put an end to the Pochettino sham”, writes Nicolas Puiravau on Twitter. “I was genuinely excited when Pochettino arrived. What a huge disappointment. On all levels”, launches another irreducible PSG.
“Pochettino spoils my pleasure, from week to week. With such strength, count on citrus fruits to save it. No tactics except to launch Mbappé in depth. FED UP FED UP”, writes another. “Who could give me A single reason for not firing the despicable Pochettino? » The criticism of Thomas Tuchel’s successor does not stop and the leaders may well end up taking it into account if the situation does not settle in the coming days. Especially since Qatar always keeps an eye on Zinedine Zidane.
PSG transfer window: Zidane instead of Pochettino?
Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda recently revealed that Nasser Al-Khelaifi never broke contact with Zinedine Zidane. While Pochettino is increasingly criticized, the president of Paris Saint-Germain has revived the former Real Madrid coach on the possibility of succeeding him. The director of the daily OK Diario assures that if the former glory of world football resists for the moment, he is not necessarily opposed to the idea. He is just waiting to see how things will go at the French Football Federation with Didier Deschamps whose contract at the helm of Les Bleus expires after the 2022 world Cup in Qatar.
But Zizou could be persuaded by Doha who offers him to be coach of PSG and then coach of the French team if he wishes. Nothing is decided yet, but PSG is keeping an eye on Zidane, according to the latest information relayed by ESPN.
