Call Pochettino right before he gets fired Where’s the big club?
It wasn’t that many big clubs. Mauricio Pochettino, the first club to want Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), is Athletic Bilbao of La Liga, Spain.
“Billbao contacted Pochettino to explore the possibility of his appointment,” French media Lecif said. Bilbao’s contract with coach Marcelino Garcia Toral expires in July, and has yet to negotiate a renewal.
Bilbao is hoping for a shake-up. As the new presidential election is held in June, the executive branch will change, so it will bring a coach with a reputation. Pochettino said, “Put me on the line among the leaders who will be free this summer.” Bilbao moved first.
Pochettino is likely to leave PSG at the end of this season. Although he won the French League 1 early, public opinion is not good. Both the leadership that failed to bring together superstars such as Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and the leadership that was eliminated in the round of 16 of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Champions League are not well-received. Even though he won his own league early, he was excluded from the nomination for the League 1 Coach of the Year award.
Bilbao is an attractive place, but Pochettino’s weight class has fallen a lot. Since the big club was once a leader who tried to take each other, the problem revealed at PSG seems to be quite big. Attention is focusing on whether he will accept Bilbao’s love call as Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Tottenham Hotspur, who have been looking at Pochettino, are in no hurry to find the head coach
