PSG director Leonardo denies Man Utd contacted Pochettino – and Zidane request

PSG director Leonardo insists no clubs have contacted Mauricio Pochettino about leaving the Ligue 1 giants.

The Argentine has been strongly linked with the Manchester United job following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking last year.

But Leonardo says PSG have not received any calls from other clubs, whilst also denying he was lining up Zinedine Zidane to replace Pochettino.

“Today he has one year left on his contract (until June 2023). Honestly, we never thought about changing coaches. Really,” Leonardo told L’Equipe.

“We never got in touch with Zidane or anyone else. Before coming here, Pochettino was among the top five coaches and still is. You can see the progression, although a lot has happened.

“I always see him more involved because, over time, you know the context better. Is Pochettino happy in Paris? Yes. I think he may have had moments of doubt, but he never asked to leave.

“He may have had difficult periods, in February or March he had Covid. Then, during the summer, there were rumours of his departure.

“He says no club asked him and no one called us. I have no problem with Pochettino. We are very clear, we talk about everything.”
