PSG, Al-Khelaïfi confirms for Zidane
Like Leonardo, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi defeated rumors of contacts between PSG and Zinedine Zidane.
It will obviously take more to put an end to the rumors around the future of Mauricio Pochettino, whose future at PSG appears uncertain despite a contract running until June 2023 and results all in all at the rendezvous between a leadership position in Ligue 1 with 12 points ahead and a qualification already assured for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
However, PSG, recently outclassed by Manchester City in C1, does not convince and the Parisian coach, who seems unable to bring his star locker room into line, necessarily appears weakened. And all the more so since the Argentinian technician himself expressed his doubts during two recent interviews.
Recently sent to the Manchester United bench by the English press, the former central defender has the full confidence of his leaders. Evidenced by the comments made on Monday by Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. “Pochettino is our coach and he is happy to be with us, we are happy to work with him, he thus assured on the sidelines of the Ballon d’Or ceremony on Monday evening. He’s doing a good job. Everyone needs time. I see all the rumors, we have to stop talking about it, it’s not true. We are really happy with the coach. “
We have no contact with Zidane
And the Parisian president did not stop there. He also twisted his neck at rumors evoking contacts between the PSG staff and Zinedine Zidane, announced as the priority target year for the vice-champions of France in the event of the departure of Mauricio Pochettino. “We have no contact with Zidane, he is a great coach, but we also have a very good one”, he assured.
Comments in line with those recently made by Leonardo. “We don’t want Pochettino to leave. He never asked to leave and no club contacted us in relation to him. We have a lot of respect for Zinédine Zidane, which he did as a player and coach, but I can tell you very clearly that there is no contact and that no meeting with him took place ”, he told AFP.
