Speculation over Pochettino’s future in the French capital has swirled since PSG were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid in the round of 16, despite holding a 2-0 aggregate lead at half-time of the second leg.
Even PSG’s clinching of their 10th Ligue 1 title last month was marred by a protest from the club’s ultras, who left the game with 15 minutes remaining rather than celebrating with the team’s players.
Pochettino was strongly linked to taking over as manager of Manchester United next season before the Premier League giants opted to appoint Erik Ten Hag from Ajax.
Pochettino was appointed PSG boss in January 2021, following his dismissal from Tottenham at the end of 2019.
