Angel Di Maria suggests Paris Saint-Germain will sack Mauricio Pochettino

Angel Di Maria has indicated Mauricio Pochettino will be sacked as part of a “big change” at Paris Saint-Germain before the start of next season.

Mauricio Pochettino has a contract with PSG until 2023, but it has long been reported that his career is in jeopardy.

Roma coach Jose Mourihno is the latest name to be linked with the Ligue 1 champions, and there are no concerns that Zinedine Zidane could replace coach Pochettino.

Di Maria has played his last game for the Paris Bulls as his contract expires at the end of this month and the defender has suggested that Pochettino could also be out.

The Argentine midfielder told TyC Sports: “There are other players who will definitely leave. Mine was very easy because they did not have to renew [his contract].

“On the one hand it hurts and on the other, no. I went in a very special way. It was a night I will never forget [Di Maria was applauded when she was knocked out defeating Metz 5-0, that. An Argentine man abroad says goodbye like me, not everyone does.

“The love of the PSG fans, who are behind the goal, is the hardest thing to achieve. The fact that I went out, that they sang on my own and made a picture of me to sign is something that lives on in my memory.”

He added: “It looks like they also want the coach to leave. It will be a big change, but I think [Lionel] Messi knew how to understand it.

“It will help him get better next season. I think it will start very well because he ends up scoring goals, providing assistants, feeling comfortable and getting used to it a lot.”

Di Maria has been linked with Juventus and Barcelona after becoming a free agent.
