After the draw between OL and PSG for women this Sunday in D1 (0-0), Leonardo did not escape questions around the men’s team and Mauricio Pochettino, whose name circulates at Real Madrid and Tottenham.
On Canal +, he took advantage of an awkward formulation to dodge the question. Sure France Blue, he only dropped a few words: “I tell you, Mauricio Pochettino has two years of contract with us and we are very happy”, simply replied Leonardo about the rumors around the future of the coach of the PSG.
For several days, a waltz of coaches has been raging in Europe and has had some repercussions on the Parisian side. Because the name of Mauricio Pochettino circulates in Real Madrid – where the departure of Zinedine Zidane was recorded – or in his former club Tottenham, which dismissed José Mourinho a few months ago. But the Parisian sports director, him, reminds his trainer of his contractual obligations.
“It’s a very positive season”
The second part of the season for PSG – under the orders of Pochettino therefore, arrived after the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel – was not, however, easy. And even ended with a second place in Ligue 1 behind LOSC.
“If we see the season that we have lived, it’s a very positive season, said Leonardo all the same. The last two years … you won all the national titles last year, you reached the final Champions League, this year you get to the semi-finals by winning the Coupe de France and finishing second in the championship. And there are teams that have maintained a very important level throughout the championship. four until the end and we came second. It can happen. Anything says it’s an easy championship … easy, if you win all the matches! But for that, you have to be very good and Lille was and won it. “
