PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has made an audacious claim that he will never manage Spanish side Barcelona and French club Olympique Marseille.
Pochettino spent most of his playing career at Barcelona’s Catalonia rival Espanyol, and was his first managerial job after retirement as a player. He also played at PSG where he currently manages.
“I will never manage Barcelona. That is not possible. I have this idea of life, a connection with a part of this city, that makes that impossible. Just like Marseille is also impossible for me.” he told RMC Sport (via GFFN).
Pochettino was without a job for a year after he was fired by Tottenham before taking over at PSG from Thomas Tuchel who has also taken over at Chelsea after Frank Lampard was relieved of his duties.
