Ligue 1 – It is almost confirmed that Pochettino will not remain in Paris. And two names have emerged from France: Zidane and Conte. Both coaches have several laurels. But only the Frenchman knows what it is to lift the Champions League. And that is what PSG is looking for.
By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).
The main French media agree on the version: Mauricio Pochettino will not remain the coach of Paris Saint Germain. Despite having won the Ligue 1 title, the balance of the season is negative.
The team was not only out of the French Cup. But also from the main objective: the Champions League. The elimination in the Round of 16 against Real Madrid was such a blow for the fans that the local title did not alleviate it. That is why two names are already being mentioned in Paris to take the Argentine’s place: Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte.

There has been no official confirmation from the club about Pochettino’s departure. But the most important newspapers speak of a decision already taken that only lacks the public announcement. And they go further. They claim that Zidane and Conte are the front-runners to replace the coach.
Leonardo will not continue either
The sporting crisis of being out of the Champions League again would also remove Leonardo as sporting director. With a team that was reinforced with the arrival of Lionel Messi and other players to lift the Champions League, this was unacceptable.
Antonio Conte has offered his services to Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year contract, per Le Parisien.
PSG have studied the option of replacing Pochettino with Conte, but he is not the priority. Their dream option is Zinedine Zidane, who is holding out for the France job.

Regarding the future coach, the leading candidate is Zidane. The Frenchman is now unemployed after his second cycle at the helm of Real Madrid. And he is the obvious candidate. But in the last few hours a competitor has emerged: Conte.
The Italian already knows what it is to win titles in two different leagues. He won the Premier League with Chelsea and Serie A with Juventus and Inter Milan. But he has a disadvantage: he is currently working at Tottenham. Where he is bound by a contract until mid-2023.
? Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte are on the PSG shortlist to replace Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season.

Conte and Zidane, interestingly, were teammates at Juventus in their playing days. Today, soccer finds them as possible successors to Pochettino at a PSG that, next season, will once again go for its unfinished business: the Champions League. And Zidane knows what it’s like to win it as a coach: he was a three-time champion with Real Madrid. Will he be the chosen one?
