Mauricio Pochettino is at the centre of a ‘tug of war’ between Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain according to The Express

The article says our genius boss appears to be on the wanted list of both clubs in what could become a managerial merry-go-round this summer.

It adds that Unai Emery’s, PSG’s coach, job is under threat if he doesn’t reach at least the semi-finals of this seasons Champions League.

Emery has supposedly fallen out with world record signing Neymar and the former Sevilla coach could be out of a job even if he does bring success to the French capital.

Jose Mourinho last week made it clear that he would be interested in coaching PSG and the article says he is their first choice to replace Emery, however if he opts to remain at United the article adds that PSG have been quick to take notice of the work Pochettino has been doing in North London.

Pochettino is very much on their wanted list while United also have him on the list of candidates they are looking at should Mourinho decide to move on.

The article continues saying Pochettino’s stock is rising rapidly especially after our 3-1 Champions League victory over Real Madrid before the international break.

The Argentinian tactician has history at the French club where spent two years playing for PSG and is also former captain and would be a popular appointment with PSG faithful.

Its international break week and there probably is boredom on Fleet Street however do we think Pochettino might be tempted by Paris or, and like he’s said many times, committed to the cause at Spurs and to see it through? Let us know your thoughts on this latest link.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Levy needs to do as much as possible to prevent poch from going but we all know in football money and glory can be a powerfull thing to ignore so what will be will be

  2. No they’re not. Pochettino has already given his timeline…..and it’s no time soon and it’s certainly not to Manchester.

    Ferguson begged him to come 2 years ago in a London eatery and the guy told him thanks but bounce. No body worth a spit is leaving that club until they open the stadium and even then the more important ones aren’t leaving either. Guess the jealous big clubs will have to learn to make do with what they have.
