PSG confirm Pochettino’s departure ahead of successor’s arrival

Paris Saint-Germain have parted company with coach Mauricio Pochettino, the French champions confirmed ahead of the expected announcement of Christophe Galtier as the Argentine’s successor.

“Paris Saint-Germain confirm that Mauricio Pochettino has ended his role at the club,” said a club statement as the former Tottenham Hotspur coach leaves the Parc des Princes after 18 months in charge.

Pochettino and his backroom staff depart having won the Ligue 1 title last season but the campaign was better remembered for a disappointing exit from the Champions League in the last 16 at the hands of Real Madrid.

“The club would like to thank Mauricio Pochettino and his staff for their work and wish them the best for the future,” added PSG’s statement.

Confirmation of Pochettino’s departure came after club sources confirmed on Monday that Galtier had agreed to become the new coach on a two-year deal.

The 55-year-old Galtier, who spent last season in charge of Ligue 1 rivals Nice, was pictured arriving at the club’s offices just outside the French capital on Monday.

A press conference is scheduled at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday afternoon where Galtier is set to be officially unveiled.

Galtier, who left Nice last month, has developed a reputation as the leading coach in the French club game over the last decade.

He enjoyed eight successful years at Saint-Etienne, where he won the League Cup in 2013, before a four-year stint at Lille was crowned with the Ligue 1 title in 2021, when they pipped PSG.
