With a view to replacing Mauricio Pochettino for next season, Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has targeted a new coach, whom he has met.
Antonio Conte, Joachim Löw, Thiago Motta or even Zinedine Zidane… several coaches have already seen their name associated with Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks, with a view to replacing Mauricio Pochettino, announced on departure, for the next exercise. .
Only until then, the file still seems vague and no candidate stands out. And then, the coach in place does not frankly show the will to leave the ship either. Therefore, this file promises to be complex for the Red and Blue.
However, this does not prevent the Parisian sports director, Leonardo – whose future is also written in dotted lines – from working on other avenues. According to information from our colleagues at Foot Mercatothe Brazilian has also targeted and met a new technician, in the person of Sergio Conceiçao!
Convinced by the profile and the grip of the Portuguese, who has just had a good season with FC Porto (with the title in the league and a Cup final to be negotiated), Leonardo sets up the 47-year-old technician as a target of choice, failing to make it a priority. For his part, the former coach of FC Nantes, author of a first successful passage during the 2016-2017 season in Ligue 1, would be excited about the idea of working at PSG.
It remains to be seen whether the Parisians will accelerate on this track, while Conceiçao has a release clause set at €10m in Porto, and whether the upper echelons of the Ile-de-France region – located in Doha – will validate such a target, which is necessarily less flashy on paper than others…
