PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are going to fight hard to keep Mauricio Pochettino amid Tottenham’s bid to re-sign their former manager.
That is according to The Independent, who claim that PSG’s stance could block an emotional reunion between Pochettino and the north Londoners.
The Argentine turned Spurs into a top side during his five-year stint at the helm ever since his arrival from Southampton in 2014 as he led them to the 2019 Champions League Final.
However, the 49-year-old was sacked just a few months after the final due to a poor run of results and joined PSG last January.
The former Espanyol manager was replaced at Tottenham by Jose Mourinho, who was also sacked in April.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is now committed to doing everything in his power to bring Pochettino back and talks are reportedly ongoing.

However, PSG want to hold on to their manager even though he lost the Ligue 1 title to shock winners Lille.
The Parisians still believe in Pochettino, who won the French Cup on his maiden season, and don’t want to offload another top coach after Thomas Tuchel.
But the Argentine has reportedly found coaching at PSG “more of a headache than expected”.

The talented boss and his staff felt at home in London but have yet to settle in Paris with most of their time spent in hotels.
Pochettino is also concerned with the power structure at the club as he feels it doesn’t allow him much influence.
The manager and his staff are reportedly feeling like there is unfinished business at Tottenham and their contract, which runs out next year, is not considered too tough to get out of.
