PSG: negotiations block at the level of the staff of Pochettino

Holidays, I forget everything, nothing to do at all. And even less facilitate the task of PSG in its desire to turn the page? This is what, in essence, could explain the status quo, or at least the slowness of the inevitable changes that are looming within the Parisian technical staff.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi certainly did not say it with these words in the interview he gave to Parisian on Tuesday. He also did not mention the situation, nor the balance sheet of Mauricio Pochettino. But by confirming “to discuss with Nice” and by confiding that he “hoped to quickly find an agreement” around the arrival of Christophe Galtier, the president of PSG, without even pronouncing his name, validated the fact that the Argentine coach would not keep not the orders of the reigning French champion next season.

Ten days before the resumption, scheduled for July 4, Pochettino is however officially still the coach of this PSG, of which he took the reins in January 2021 in the costume of the highest paid coach in the history of Ligue 1. More that the negotiations with Nice to free Galtier are those revolving around Mauricio Pochettino and especially his technical staff who today seem to be slowing down the march towards change.

A total cost of around 25 million euros

On the side of the Gym, we no longer make a secret of his wish to separate from a Christophe Galtier with whom the adventure would probably not have spent the summer, even if the PSG had not made eyes at him. . Five days before the resumption of training, scheduled for Monday, the management of the Aiglons would even see with a good eye that things are accelerating. This would indeed allow him to obtain the promise of significant compensation for the defector of his coach to the capital, but also to make room for Lucien Favre, tipped to take his place on the Riviera bench.

Except that before being able to appoint a new coach in Paris, it is necessary to settle the case of the one who must become the former. More than the situation of the ex-coach of Tottenham, it is actually those of his assistants, Jesus Pérez and Miguel d’Agostino, as well as that of his son and physical trainer, Sebastiano Pochettino, who are slowing down the movement. A situation which, however, cannot go on forever. Despite the total cost of it, estimated at around 25 million euros (between 8 and 10 for Galtier and around 15 for Pochettino and his assistants), it should know its epilogue, at the latest, in the middle of the week. next.
