Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly been sacked as manager of Paris Saint-Germain after the Argentine and the club reached an agreement on his exit, according to ESPN.

And according to the report, the French club is yet to announce the departure of the Argentine.

Pochettino has been in charge for 18 months and led the club to the Ligue 1 title in his first full season, finishing 15 points clear of second-placed Marseille.

The club’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid in the last-16 played a major role in the mutual decision for Pochettino to leave Paris.

Nice head coach, Christophe Galtier is said to be the front-runner to replace Pochettino after Luis Campos replaced Leonardo as sporting director.

However, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane had been believed to be the preferred choice of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar who owns PSG after a successful meeting.
