Pochettino returns to PSG as manager

Paris Saint-Germain has appointed Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager.

Pochettino has signed a deal with the French champions until June 2022, with the option for an extra year.

It is his first managerial role since being sacked by Tottenham in November 2019.

Pochettino will take charge of his first training session on Sunday when the players return from winter break.

“I am really happy and honoured to become the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain,” said Pochettino, who played for PSG from 2001 to 2003.

“I would like to thank the club’s management for the trust they have placed in me.

“As you know, this club has always held a special place in my heart. I have wonderful memories, especially of the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes. I return to the club today with a lot of ambition and humility, and am eager to work with some of the world’s most talented players.

“This team has fantastic potential and my staff and I will do everything we can to get the best for Paris Saint-Germain in all competitions. We will also do our utmost to give our team the combative and attacking playing identity that Parisian fans have always loved.”
