According to reports, PSG will be taking strict decisions on Mauricio Pochettino and their sporting director Leonardo as they look to change their supporting staff for better European results next season.

After winning the battle for Kylian Mbappe against Real Madrid, they will look to make some tactical changes at the club as the French striker will also have an influence on the selection of future staff. PSG won the Ligue 1 title this season under Pochettino but their undone efforts in the champions league don’t help Pochettino to continue at the club next season.

Many players are expected to depart, and there are also concerns about Pochettino’s future, with the Argentine likely to be replaced by Zinedine Zidane. Zinedine Zidane is likely to take over the role from Pochettino but he feels that there is no such relevant reason to leave the club as he has one year left in his contract.

He failed to earn PSG their first Champions League championship, as they were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Real Madrid. PSG is set to make their last appearance this season against Metz at Parc des Princes on Saturday and then will end their season with a celebration of winning the league title and also winning the battle for Mbappe.

“I don’t see any reason why I won’t be here next season. I still have one year left on my contract,” Mauricio Pochettino earlier said on the speculations of him leaving PSG.
