Mauricio Pochettino has agreed to replace Thomas Tuchel as Paris Saint-Germain manager

The Argentine is set to replace Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked by the French giants on Thursday morning.

The ever reliable Fabrizio Romano confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "Mauricio Pochettino has reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain, confirmed.

"Now it’s time to prepare the contracts, sort out the last details [as the choice of the technical staff] and sign.

"Here-we-go soon! The new era is starting."

Pochettino has been away from management since leaving his role at Tottenham in November 2019.

He played for PSG for two years and he spoke about returning to the club back in 2016.

“I’ve always said that I would be pleased to join a great club like PSG,” Pochettino told RMC.per the Guardian.

“Come to Paris? I hope so. It is true that it would please me. It’s part of my dreams. I try to watch all their matches, especially in the Champions League.

“The [French] championship is not very attractive because PSG is far from the other teams but I look a lot because it is a major source of players. There is talent so I have to follow Ligue 1.”

Pochettino will take over a PSG side that are third in Ligue 1, just one point off league leaders, Lyon.

PSG are also in the last-16 of the Champions League and Pochettino will be given the task of finally ending the club's wait for the trophy.

Will be truly interesting to see what Poch might be able to do at a club with higher quality and much better budget. I worry however that his real speciality might have been to built a strong group with the younger most talented player of the team, like he did at Spurs, something that PSG obviously don't care about.

However, Tuchel sacking kinda come as a shock, sure, this season started poorly for PSG but he still managed to get them first of their CL group and lets not forget the fact he historically managed to make them reach the final last season. A bit dissapointing.

Though honestly, PSG direction is kinda terrible cause they want a coach who can bring them results fast and control his group but at the same time, they want someone they can control and that agree with the way the club is run, despite the fact the club isn't alway run with only the sportive results in mind.

@Footy_watch Propably would have never have happened because Arsenal was the biggest of Spurs rival. Poch might have gotten away joining United but he would have propably gotten serious stick from Totteham fans if he joined Arsenal. Though he would have been a interesting match for the Arsenal job.

@Footy_watch Most managers try not to join too much of a direct rival generally even if they were sacked. Though its true there are different kind of coach who don't really care about it at all or sacking that are so bad that it erase the love between the manager and the teams. Some manager also get away with because of how much they did for the club and the fact they still show their former club lots of respect. Still don't think Poch would goes out of his way to join a Tottenham rival though.

this is actually the easiest way to get Poch at arsenal if that really is what you want. Manager's, like players extremely rarely go directly from one rival to their main rivals. But it's much more acceptable to go to that rival after having played at or managed another team beforehand. So the earlier Poch goes to another club the better.
