PSG Opens Up On Appointing Zidane, Pochettino’s Move To Man United


PSG Sporting Director, Leonardo has opened up on speculations linking former Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane to the club and current boss, Mauricio Pochettino leaving Paris for Manchester United.

The Brazilian Sporting Director insisted that United’s Pochettino will not be leaving PSG, adding that the Premier League has not even made any contact for the Argentine.

Pochettino has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday.

Solskjaer was dismissed by the United board on Sunday after the former Premier League club were beaten 4-1 by lowly rated Watford.

And Pochettino emerged as the leading contender to become United’s next permanent manager.

United have now agreed a deal with Ralf Rangnick to become interim boss at the club as the search for a permanent boss continues.

“We do not want Mauricio Pochettino to go,’ said the Brazilian sporting director on Friday.

“He has never asked to leave and nobody has contacted us for him.

“We respect Zinedine Zidane a lot, both as a player and a coach, but I tell you very clearly that there has been no contact and no meeting with him has taken place.

“It is ridiculous to imagine that a meeting with us and Zinedine Zidane could have taken place in a big hotel in Paris in front of the eyes of everyone.”
