The French champions, who luckily managed to win Ligue 1 in advance due to the last draws over the hour against Lens and Strasbourg, are already planning what will be the following season where they know that Mauricio Pochettino will no longer be on the Parisian bench.
Without a doubt, Nasser Al-Khelaifi is looking for a serious candidate who can achieve the longing that Paris Saint-Germain fans so much hope for: the Uefa Champions League. This season they wanted to achieve it by putting together a stellar team with Lionel Messi together with Neymar and Kylian Mbappé who obviously excited the French capital.
However, when push came to shove, the team led by Mauricio Pochettino had a bad series against Real Madrid in the round of 16, especially at the Santiago Bernabéu, which despite starting out winning, turned uphill for them due to the lack of reaction they had, added to the errors that the whites took advantage of.
Much has been said about the strategist that the club wants, among them it is rumored above all with Zinedine Zidane, who maintained that he would only go if they make the effort to bring Cristiano Ronaldo. However, they already see this distant option because the desire of ‘Zizou’ is to reach the France National Team after the departure of Didier Deschamps once his participation in the Qatar World Cup ends.
Because of that option to join the French team, who is free for now is being diluted as a card for the Paris Saint-Germain bench. Another name is Antonio Conte, who in the same way has already denied the rumours, despite the fact that he still does not guarantee his continuity with Tottenham.
Like this the things, the options of Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte little by little are turning into impossibilities. For this reason, two new names are announced, one with plenty of experience, the other who started in 2018, and by coincidence in the Paris Saint-Germain U-19.
Joachim Löw is an option, and it may be even more possible because the strategist is free. Without a doubt, with a technical director like the Teuton, and his entire journey in Germany could be a letter for achieving the long-awaited Uefa Champions League. It would be interesting to see if his abilities on the bench can be the same at a club as he is at a national team.
The other candidate is a leader and man of the house, Thiago Motta. The one born in Brazil, but who represented Italy at the international level, played in Paris from 2011 to 2018. As a strategist he has had less experience, since he took the reins of the PSG U-19, and then he was in possession in Genoa and now Spezia.
One with enormous experience, the other who is just relating to the technical direction. Nasser Al-Khelaifi will study the different strategists who will be able to assume the bench of Paris Saint-Germain and in the summer that candidate will be defined with that intact illusion of raising the Uefa Champions League.
