The departure of Thomas Tuchel formalized, the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino on the bench of PSG should not take long to follow. The opportunity to recall the important moments of the career of the Argentine coach in a few dates.
Mauricio Pochettino had a club in Argentina before joining Europe. He made his professional debut with the Newell’s Old Boys jersey at the age of 17 in 1989. The center-back even had the privilege of training with Diego Maradona in the 1993-1994 season. He will be champion twice with the Rosario club (1991 and 1992).
Pochettino then opens the Spanish page with a city close to his heart: Barcelona. He first spent seven years with Espanyol (1994-2001) then two seasons (2004-2006) to end his football career there. He will also make his debut as a coach in the capital of Catalonia.
Virgin prize list
After three years on the bench of Espanyol (2009-2012), Pochettino joined England and Southampton for one season (2013-2014). That will be enough to catch the eye of Tottenham decision-makers. With the Spurs, Mauricio Pochettino will forge a solid reputation in the Premier League and in Europe.
The final of the 2019 Champions League, lost against Liverpool, will be one of the peaks on his CV because his coaching record does not include any title in the end. PSG is counting on him to register the C1 in 2021. Sacred pressure.
