Pochettino was shown the door by PSG’s super-rich Qatari owners despite winning reclaiming the Ligue 1 title from Lille.

It’s reckoned club chiefs were left fuming with PSG’s inability to compete in Europe yet again.

That’s after last summer’s splurge which saw Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes join the club.

PSG looked set to reach the quarter finals last season before a late collapse resulted in defeat to Real Madrid.

The French champs have now turned to Christophe Galtier for inspiration.

And even Mbappe has been convinced to stay after looking certain to join Real.

But it’s game over for ex-Spurs boss Poch, who is now without a job.

He reckons his time at PSG had plenty of positives, but ultimately the failure in Europe spelled the end.

Poch told InfoBae: “In the sporting aspect we have won the Cup, the Super Cup and the League in a year and a half.

“But it is clear that PSG’s project is to win the Champions League, and everything that is not winning the Champions League can always be thought to have been a failure. 

“In any case, it is a failure of 50 years because PSG, especially in the last 10 years with the arrival of the new owners, has the objective of winning the Champions League

“I think that is going to happen because the resources are there, but sometimes in football it is not what one thinks it can be.”
