The former PSG defender oversaw an unbeaten home record in the league this season, ending the campaign with 16 wins in 19 games.

PSG regained the title but their last-16 exit – with in the team – was seen as a major failure.

They squandered a 2-0 aggregate lead in the against eventual champions to cast a serious question mark over Pochettino’s future.

It was the first time Les Parisiens, who reached the semi-finals in 2021 and were the beaten finalists in 2020, had lost a away game after leading at half-time since 2001.

Pochettino was sacked by Spurs in November 2019 after five years in charge of the Premier League club, months after leading them to the 2019 final.

After taking charge of PSG in January last year, they finished second in Ligue 1 behind Galtier’s Lille and were beaten in that year’s semi-finals by Manchester City.

However, they won the Coupe de France and the Trophee des Champions, which were the first trophies of Pochettino’s managerial career.

The former Argentina defender began his managerial career at Espanyol and spent 18 months at Southampton before joining in May 2014.
