Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is determined to remain in charge of the French giants this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino has said that he is determined to remain in charge of the French giants for the 2022-23 campaign.

The Argentine has led PSG to this season’s Ligue 1 title, but the club’s failure to win the Champions League have led to suggestions that he will leave the club this summer.

Pochettino still has a year left to run on his contract in Paris, though, and the 50-year-old has confirmed that he wants to remain with the club despite a host of recent speculation.

“Before I said [that I want to stay] 100% here. Today I say 100% here [too]. I have one more year left on my contract. The challenges are there and it motivates any coach,” Pochettino told El Partidazo de COPE.

“Of course I want to continue, 100%. PSG are a club with ambition. The big disappointment is the Champions League [elimination] because of the desire of the people.”

Pochettino had been strongly linked with the managerial role at Manchester United before the Red Devils confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag.

Zinedine Zidane is allegedly not interested in taking charge of PSG despite the recent speculation, with Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim said to be the favourite for the role in Paris.

However, Kylian Mbappe, who recently signed a new deal with the French giants, is reportedly happy for Pochettino to continue as head coach for the 2022-23 campaign.

The Argentine has said that he has the motivation to help PSG succeed in the Champions League next season, with the club losing to Real Madrid in the last-16 stage of the 2021-22 competition.
