Pochettino Tells Paris Saint-Germain He Wants Out

Mauricio Pochettino PSG

According to French daily newspaper Libération, Mauricio Pochettino has asked Paris Saint-Germain to be released from his contract amid speculation linking the Argentine with a sensational return to Tottenham Hotspur.

The 49-year-old joined PSG just six months ago, taking over from Thomas Tuchel, having spent 14 months out of the game following his exit from north London in November 2019.

Pochettino has led PSG to two trophies since taking over, the French Super Cup and French Cup. But PSG finished second in Ligue 1 and were knocked out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage by eventual runners up Manchester City.

Champions League Final Moved To Portugal

Champions League Trophy

Portugal is set to host the Champions League final after Uefa failed to receive the guarantees of exemptions it wants if it is to move the game to Wembley.

Uefa, UK government officials and the Football Association met on Monday to discuss moving the game between Chelsea and Manchester City from Istanbul.

Uefa has decided it will be moved after Turkey was put on England’s red travel list meaning fans cannot travel. Portugal is on the green list so fans would be allowed to attend on 29 May.

Pochettino Wins First Trophy As A Manager

Mauricio Pochettino won the first trophy of his managerial career as Paris St-Germain beat Marseille to win the Trophee des Champions in Lens.

The Trophee des Champions is France’s version of the Community Shield – a game between the league and cup winners.

It was only the former Spurs manager’s third game in charge of PSG after being appointed earlier this month.

Mauro Icardi tapped home PSG’s opener from close range and won a penalty which Neymar scored for the second while Dmitri Payet scored a late consolation with a clever flick for Marseille.

Lionel Messi Hands In Transfer Request

Lionel Messi Transfer News

We knew things were bad at the Camp Nou between the Barcelona players and the board. We knew that Lionel Messi was upset but still we were shocked when the news came out that Messi had activated a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave on a free transfer this summer.

Although his contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, Messi and his legal team believe the clause will allow him to terminate his deal unilaterally.

PSG Offer Messi Landing Place In Paris

Lionel Messi Priceless

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has declared Lionel Messi is “very welcome” to join the club should the Barcelona star decide to pursue a move away from Camp Nou.

The Argentine legend has once again been linked with a possible Barca exit after seeing his side end the season without a trophy and lose 8-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.
