Mauricio Pochettino: PSG complete the departure of the former Spurs boss of the French champions | Football news

Paris Saint-Germain nears the departure of head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

The former Tottenham and Southampton boss is leaving after leading PSG to the French title, with a 15-point gain – the biggest margin of a title-winning team in the top five leagues.

Ultimately, though, it was PSG’s final capitulation in the Champions League, the competition that Qatari owners crave, that cost Pochettino his job.

PSG led 2-0 on the aggregate with just 45 minutes left of their last-16 draw against Real Madrid, but was undone by a 17-minute hat-trick by Karim Benzema in the second half.

Pochettino was able to guide PSG to the semi-finals the previous season, becoming only the second manager in the club’s history to do so under current ownership, but were eliminated by Manchester City.
