Looking for a new coach for next season, Manchester United ultimately opts for Erik Ten Hag, the coach of Ajax, and not for Mauricio Pochettino. Very bad news for…PSG.
Ralf Rangnick, who arrived last November to get the Red Devils back on track, is only an interim coach, as the MU board plans to hire a new coach next summer. If Mauricio Pochettino’s file has been on top of the pile since last winter, that no longer seems to be the case, as Manchester ultimately chose to bring in Erik Ten Hag. Already because the Dutch coach has better sporting arguments than the Argentinian this season, but also because this deal will be cheaper, Ajax is claiming 2 million euros to let their technician go while the PSG in question 15 ME… Ultimately, Paris will therefore be the big loser in history, as the club of the French capital counted on MU to eliminate Pochettino. In any case, this is the announcement of Julien Laurens.
“It’s not really the plan the Qataris had in mind”

“What future for Pochettino? It’s a very good question and I think it’s one of the questions that comes with Ten Hag’s possible arrival at United. Pochettino and PSG really saw this opportunity for United as a happy ending. Paris reportedly got some money to go after Zinedine Zidane. In any case, it is clear that the PSG management does not want to see Pochettino on the bench next season, even though he still has a one-year contract. Only problem is that if the United option is gone, Pochettino may want to stay in Paris. So if PSG wants to get rid of him, they’ll have to pay a heavy price for it…before they go get someone else with a big check too. It’s not really the plan the Qataris had in mind, they really thought United would come and get Pochettino. All this makes PSG’s future uncertain…”launched, on ESPN FC, the follower of English and French football, who thinks PSG will have to rethink their plans for their sports revolution.
