Former Tottenham Manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has been appointed as the new manager of French Champions, Paris Saint Germain.
This is the first time the former Espanyol and Southampton manager would be in charge of a club since he was sacked by the London side in November 2019.
Pochettino is replacing Thomas Tuchel, who led the Ligue 1 side to their first UEFA Champions League final just four months ago. Both Tuchel and Pochettino were however beaten by Bayern Munich and Liverpool respectively, in their first Champions League finals.
According to an ecstatic Pochettino, who played for PSG between 2001 and 2003, he is looking forward to working with the players.
“I am really happy and honoured to become the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain. I would like to thank the club’s management for the trust they have placed in me.”
“As you know, this club has always held a special place in my heart. I have wonderful memories, especially of the unique atmosphere of the Parc des Princes. I return to the club today with a lot of ambition and humility, and am eager to work with some of the world’s most talented players.”
Pochettino whose contract will run until June 2022, is set to take charge of his first training session at Parc de Princes tomorrow.
