Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, with Christophe Galtier expected to be named as their new head coach later on Tuesday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s dismissal has long been expected, with PSG again failing to secure a place in the Champions League last season.

The former Tottenham boss gave us the Ligue 1 title, but the last 16 defeat to Real Madrid in the European Championship continued to keep the club waiting for the continent’s fame.

A PSG statement said the club had “ended its deal” with Pochettino, although he was expected to be sacked by Galtier, who is linked with Luis Campos, a new football coach who worked with former Nice coach Lille.

“The team would like to thank Mauricio Pochettino and his staff for their work and wish them all the best for the future,” the statement added.

Pochettino, who spent two and a half years at PSG as a player, has been in charge since January 2021.

He won the Trophee des Champions and Coupe de France for his first season in Paris – the first major honor in his coaching career – before adding to the league title in 2021-22.

But the arrival of Campos has signaled the reconstruction of the upcoming season, or Kylian Mbappe remaining at the club on a new contract following interest from Real Madrid.

PSG will host a press conference on Tuesday afternoon, with Galtier in line to get a top job in the capital.
