Pochettino Positive Of Extended Stay At PSG

Manager Mauricio Pochettino says his desire to stay at Paris St-Germain is undiminished despite an underwhelming season fuelling fan discontent.

PSG are 15 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 and could clinch the title in Tuesday’s round of games.

However, the club’s ultras are demanding changes after another champion League campaign ended in a last-16 failure.

“It is not about desire, it is about the contract,” said Pochettino of a new deal beyond the end of next season.

The Argentine, who was appointed in January 2021, took up the option of extending his contract until June 2023 in the autumn.

Pochettino was a leading candidate for the Manchester United job, but Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is now on the brink of being appointed at Old Trafford for next season.

PSG suffered a Champions League semi-final defeat by Manchester City last season under Pochettino’s leadership and saw a two-goal lead slip away in the second half of the second leg against Real Madrid in their most recent campaign.
