Zidane at PSG, last minute change

Zinédine Zidane, announced with insistence on the side of Paris, would have been, according to certain information, very close to sitting on the Parisian bench this winter.

After the sad defeat of Paris Saint-Germain against Nice (0-0, 5-6 pens), this Monday evening for this round of 16 of the Coupe de France, it seems that things are not about to improve for Mauricio Pochettino. Arrived a year ago now, the Argentinian technician seems more than ever in the hot seat with this title which has just escaped the Parisians. According to Julien Maynard, one of the leading journalists of Telefoot, a departure of the former Tottenham coach could even have been recorded this winter.

And for good reason, Zinedine Zidane was very close to joining PSG. Unfortunately, fate decided otherwise, with the Champions League draw which gave Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid as opponents of the Red and Blue, for the next round of 16 scheduled for the February 15 and the 9 mars. This could have strongly tempered the potential desire of the Marseillais to succeed his counterpart from Santa Fe as quickly. Knowing that the 98 champion has, let us remember, gleaned no less than three European cups with the Merengues.

Parisian management, eyes already fixed on 2022

On the other hand, it now seems certain that a forthcoming departure from Pochettino is more inevitable than ever, barring perhaps a top-ranking performance from his team in the Champions League. The ex-Madrid coach remains the club’s number one choice, with whom they maintain fairly frequent contact. The next summer transfer window 2022 therefore promises to be full of twists and turns.
