THE Paris Saint-Germain should not remain with coach Mauricio Pochettino at the head of the team next season. One of the well-evaluated names to replace the Argentine is compatriot Marcelo Gallardo, coach and idol of the River Plate. The information was published by the French newspaper L’Team.
Pochettino has a contract with PSG until June of next year, but he is further and further away from continuing his work at the club.
Even the French champion with three rounds to spare, the elimination for Real Madrid in the round of 16 of the Champions League, the club’s main objective this season, made the coach’s position threatened.
According to the publication, Gallardo’s name has gained strength in recent days among PSG leaders. The 46-year-old coach has been in charge of River Plate since 2014 and has won several titles, including one South American, two Libertadores, Copa Argentina and, more recently, the Argentine Championship. His relationship with River runs until the end of this year.
In December of last year, Muñeco surprisingly announced his stay for another season, frustrating the plans of Flamengo and the Uruguayan national team, then main candidates to sign him.
