PSG Fires Mauricio Pochettino After 18 Months in Charge of the Ligue 1 Club

Mauricio Pochettino’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain has been terminated after 18 months in charge.

The Argentine apparently met with PSG’s management in early June, and it was agreed that the Argentine would not remain as Ligue 1 manager until the termination was finalized in July.

Pochettino’s contract was slated to expire in 2023, but he has decided to quit after leading the team to the Ligue 1 title.

The French side released a statement on Tuesday, July 5, to confirm that the Argentine has left the club after a year and a half in the dugout, during which time he won the 2021/22 Ligue 1 title and two cups.

“Paris Saint-Germain confirm that Mauricio Pochettino has ended his role at the club,” the statement started.

“The Argentine coach and his team joined the club in January 2021. A former captain of the Rouge and Bleus, Pochettino took charge of 84 competitive games.
