PSG part ways with Pochettino

French soccer champions Paris Saint-Germain officially confirmed the separation from coach Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday.

The club thanked the Argentine coach and his team “for the work done” and wished him “all the best for the future”.

The 50-year-old Pochettino, whose contract with the football club on the Seine ran until 2023, came under increasing pressure towards the end of the past season.

Despite high ambitions and investments, the PSG star ensemble won the national championship alone and failed early in the Champions League in the round of 16 at eventual winner Real Madrid.

The news agency “AFP” reported on Monday that the former coach of OGC Nice, Christophe Galtier, would be officially presented at a press conference on Tuesday.

Galtier had been a top candidate for Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar for weeks.
