PSG chairman issues update on Mauricio Pochettino future amid Tottenham links
Pochettino spent over five years at Tottenham before getting the sack in November 2019 after a poor start to the season. After close to fifteen months out of a job, the 49-year-old took over as the manager of PSG in January earlier this year.
In a short period of time in France, the Argentine has led PSG to the French Cup and French Super Cup success, however, the Ligue 1 title did elude him and his team. And while he has just taken over the reins at the club, Pochettino has heavily been linked with a return to Tottenham.
Spurs have been without a manager since sacking Jose Mourinho in April. While several names have been linked with the vacant post, Pochettino is said to be high on Daniel Levy’s radar, with contacts being made between the two parties over a potential reunion. (h/t Football.london)
Al-Khelaifi, however, has dismissed the possibility of any such scenario occurring, claiming that Pochettino is planning for the future with PSG. (h/t Football.london)
“Look, at the end of the season, I had two encounters with [Mauricio] Pochettino, two or three hours each time. He never told me he wanted to leave. He never had an attitude that suggested he wanted to leave. It’s the opposite. He was totally involved in the issues: the club, the structure, the organization, what he needs for the next season.
“He talks to Leonardo almost every day about the transfer window, the players, etc. He is here since January, he still has two years of contract, he is our coach.”
