Mauricio in the verge of getting sacked by PSG

Mauricio is on the verge of getting sacked by PSG as his exit from the club has been the hot topic for months after the disappointing exit from the Champions League

Pochettino was appointed the head coach on the 2nd of January 2021, following the departure of Thomas Tuchel. 

Though he guided PSG to Ligue 1 victory, Pochettino has failed to impress the French club

The club was unable to win the Champions League, which the club most desired, despite having top players like Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe

With the rumors spreading like a fire, Pochettino, during the press conference the last month, had said there is still a year left for his contract to expire, so it’s not a question of desire but the question of the contract.

DailyMail reports Pochettino has further claimed that PSG and Manchester City had the same success because both teams won the titles and that the French club was impatience to become an elite club. 

According to Pochettino, PSG is desperate to win the Champions League

The goal is to win it, and it’s normal for trouble to arise, but they overcame them by winning Championship just as Manchester City won it in England

Pochettino says there is a lot of impatience in the club despite having won top coaches like Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc, and many other coaches and thinks they are going to find the right form of agreement so that everyone, the players, the technical staff and the management can all go in the same direction.

At the same time, News Rebeat reports that Pochettino, in an interview with ESport3, said he has another year on his contract, and there are so many rumors. 

He also claimed PSG has already kicked him out every week. And also said that the club is trying to reinvent itself and the president will explain his new projects shortly, but he is calm.

Pochettino guided the club to a 4-1 victory over Barcelona on the 16th of February, 2021, took charge of his first Champions League, and further guided to the 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final but unfortunately lost in both legs in the semi-finals against Manchester City.

According to the sources, Zinedine Zidane is likely to replace Pochettino in the coming days. However, it is yet to see until it’s confirmed.

Net Worth

His net worth is not yet disclosed but will be disclosed soon. As of now, we have the net worth of his father, Mauricio. Mauricio started his career as a central defender for Newell's Old Boys in 1989.

Before retiring as a player and starting his career as a manager in 2009, he played for the La Liga club Espanyol in 1994

He contributed to the club to win 2000 Copa del Rey. He joined Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain in 2001, Bordeaux in 2003, and Espanyol in 2004.

With Espanyol, he went on winning another Copa Del Rey in 2006. His managerial career began with Espanyol, followed by Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur, and Paris Saint-Germain
