Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he is fully focused on achieving success at Paris Saint Germain amidst rumours linking him with a return to the Premier League.

Before confirming Nuno Espirito Santo as Jose Mourinho’s successor over the summer, Tottenham reportedly tried to bring Pochettino back to the club.

It was even claimed at the time that the Argentine was keen on a return to North London as he was said to be unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the 49-year-old ended up staying in Paris and has since put pen to paper on a contract extension with the Ligue 1 giants.

Over recent weeks, the former Spurs boss has been linked with the Manchester United hot-seat, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coming under pressure amid the Red Devils’ recent results.

The Daily Star even claimed that the Argentine is United’s number one target, with Sir Alex Ferguson thought to be a fan of the PSG boss. 

When asked about his future in Paris, Pochettino has now said (via Manchester Evening News): “For me, at PSG there is only one objective: it is to win the next game.

“If not, you have a problem. I know what is happening in this type of club. 

“Paris is one of the biggest clubs in the world and you have to be focused on winning the next game.”

Spurs Web Opinion

This is a typically diplomatic answer that one would expect from Pochettino. I would be surprised if he stayed at PSG for more than a couple of years.

I think it is inevitable that he will return to the Premier League sooner rather than later.

If PSG fail to win the Champions League this season, I can potentially see the Argentine swapping Parc des Princes for Old Trafford in the summer.
