Mauricio Pochettino looks poised to be named head coach of Paris Saint-Germain, and a former World Cup colleague thinks he will be a hit.
Mauricio Pochettino has the personality and expertise to sweep in and make a difference at Paris Saint-Germain, according to a former Argentina team-mate.
It appears a matter of time before Pochettino is announced as the new head coach of the French champions.
Thomas Tuchel has reportedly already been sacked by the club, who have yet to comment on the matter, with former Tottenham boss Pochettino expected to take over.
PSG sit third in Ligue 1 this season after losing four of their 17 matches, but a 4-0 thrashing of Strasbourg on Wednesday has left them only one point behind Lyon and Lille.
Juan Pablo Sorin, who like Pochettino had a playing stint with PSG, says the incoming head coach has exactly the right profile for the job.
Sorin wrote on Twitter: “Pochettino to @PSG_inside? Hopefully!
“Feeling of genuine belonging, very good working with those under him, clear playing style, personality, human relationship with players … the dream, of course, of [winning] the @ChampionsLeague which was so close this year.”
