Mauricio Pochettino sacked by PSG

Paris St Germain has sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino, ending his 18-month stint with the French giant on Tuesday.

The 50-year-old Argentine took over the side in January 2021 and finished second in Ligue 1 behind Lille while falling short against Manchester City in the Champions League semifinal. Pochettino then led the side to a Ligue 1 title while also clinching the French Cup last season.

However, his future at PSG came under a cloud after they were eliminated from the Champions League 2021/22 season in the round of 16. The star-studded side fell to Real Madrid despite having a 2-0 aggregate lead at half-time during the second leg.
