Mauricio Pochettino gets the same problem that Thomas Tuchel and Unai Emery did in Paris Saint-Germain, with a job proving a hot seat and the French club are now looking at Zinedine Zidane.
The Argentine coach has come out in the open about the challenges posed by the role of Parc des Princes and has separated him from the team. Those behind the scenes, especially football director Leonardo, have insisted that Zinedine Zidane should be the team’s next coach.
Paris Saint-Germain’s living room has been compared to a labyrinth, and this situation is further exacerbated by the fact that the club is controlled by Qatar. This leads to difficult situations in the football team, as we saw last month when the Manchester United job became available.
Zidane has been linked with a move to Paris as soon as the club allows Pochettino to speak to Old Trafford officials. The problem was not the latest, the move was unsuccessful because the former Real Madrid coach thought the time was not right to jump into such a difficult position.
Success in all competitions remains largely on the cards of the French capital, so why is there so much speculation about the coaching position?
The team makes a lot of decisions about the movement and transfer of players, as well as certain rights that the brand names receive. This puts the coach in a difficult position and sometimes uniting the team day match evenly is not easy.
A good example of this came the day after the Ballon d’Or event where Lionel Messi was again awarded the prize.
The training was not the perfect session the next day, with a handful of players absent, Pochettino was left furious. However, the team has ignored the issue as it does at times of tension and misconduct by players.
Surprisingly, Kylian Mbappe wants to sign for Real Madrid, but he is still one of the best players in Parc des Princes.
Tuchel was sacked last year under the same circumstances as Pochettino and won the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea, where he had a team he could coach and coach.
Pochettino will survive the remaining campaign, as the transfer window has passed, but he knows Manchester United could be his next destination.
At the time, Zidane was still a long-distance observer regarding PSG’s development, meetings and communication between him and the club were denied, but there was a desire for both teams to start a new project together next season.
