In a related context, Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino refuses to reduce the value of the penalty clause in his contract to leave the French capital club this summer.
Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain until June 2023, but club officials decided to terminate his contract in order to appoint a new coach who can fulfill the club’s dream of winning the Champions League title.
The French newspaper, L’Equipe, reported that Mauricio Pochettino, coach of Paris Saint-Germain, refuses to reduce the penalty clause in his contract, which ranges between 15 to 20 million euros, to leave the technical leadership of “PSG” before the end of his contract a season.
The newspaper added that the Paris club’s management is still in continuous negotiations with the Argentine coach in order to reduce the value of the penalty clause in his contract, but the two parties have not yet reached a decisive agreement in order to end this file.
