Mauricio Pochettino has on Saturday been officially named the new coach of French champions Paris Saint-Germain following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel.
Pochettino replaced Tuchel, who was sacked by the French club on Christmas Eve, four months after steering them to their first Champions League final where they lost to Bayern Munich in Lisbon.
PSG announced the new appointment on its website that former Tottenham manager Pochettino had signed a contract until June 30, 2022 with an option for an additional year.
Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as its new head coach. The Argentine has signed a contract with the club from the French capital until 30 June 2022, with an option for an extra year.
The 48-year-old Mauricio Pochettino has a history at Paris Saint-Germain where, as a centre-back and club captain, he made 95 appearances for Rouge & Bleu between 2001 and 2003, scoring 6 goals.
Born in Murphy, Argentina, Mauricio won 20 caps and scored 2 goals for his country, and his fighting spirit made him a favorite of Parc des Princes crowd during his 30 months in Paris.
After retiring from playing, Mauricio began his coaching career at Espanyol FC between 2009 and 2012, before developing his experience in England with a spell from 2013 to 2014 at Southampton and then at Tottenham Hotspur from 2014 until 2019.
The statement added;
As Spurs manager Pochettino showed a real talent for managing top-level players with his passion and his ambitious vision of football, taking the Lilywhites to their first-ever Champions League final in the 2018/19 season.
Pochettino’s first major test will be the Champions League last-16 away leg at Barcelona next month.
He will take charge of his first match next Saturday at Saint-Etienne as Ligue 1 resumes after the winter break with PSG one point off the leaders in third.
