In his short time with the Parisian outfit, Pochettino has won two trophies – the French Cup and the French Super Cup, although his team did come up short in the Ligue 1 title rice to LOSC Lille.

Amidst all this, Tottenham have sacked Jose Mourinho, the man who replaced Pochettino and are now looking to bring back the Argentine to the club. It has been claimed that there has been contact made with the 49-year-old over the possibility of a return, amid reports that he is unhappy with how things are run at PSG. (h/t Daily Mail)

Upon signing, Pochettino had penned an eighteen-month contract which ran till the summer of 2022. However, that has now been extended till 2023, putting PSG in a strong negotiating position over any potential exit. (h/t Daily Mail)
